2.70 x 2.70

In architecture, there exists an ontological difference in the interpretation of graphics. We can “read” them in dialectical terms as drawings or as diagrams of conceptual relationships and meanings, which constitutes them. 2.70 x 2.70* proposes to reverse this set of conditions from a spatial geometry to a space of memory. Gaston Bachelard explains that the house is experienced in its reality as well as in its virtuality, by means of memory and dreams. For each individual the house is a voyage of experiential history and desires. We amass our experiences in spaces and take them with us as we move along from place to place. The house is not only lived physically, but also in our imagination. Since childhood, our house is where we learn to daydream. Our house is our universe.

Space is social and political; it has always been embedded with an idyllic desire. Drawing has been the mechanism that drives the text and geometry constructs the allegory. Any spatial practice, geographic or ethnographic, constructs our meaning of social life .When geometry becomes the diagram of our lived experiences, we live our drawings. It is this dualism in the production of space, our house/home, drawing/diagram, that constitutes our reality as architects.

2.70 x 2.70 is more than a description or dimension of space, it asks the viewer to suspend observation and read into the quadrangle his/her individual memories of home, of the corners, cracks, odors and other objects that now inhabit his/her memory and intimacy. If what we see is in this work is a house, an exercise in spatial efficiency and economy, does it have the adequate space for imagination and memory, our simply to just daydream. If each room of our house is a space of experience, as horizontal vessel of memory or a vertical assurance of shelter a” roof over our heads”, perhaps these four walls represses and neglect our intimacy and instead of producing memory they threaten our ability to dwell into our personal universe.

Sometimes only one room meets the size regulation performimg different functions such as kitchen, living room, dining room, etc. The installation will be presented in Monterrey in November 2005.

Me ha gustado mucho este post sobre algo tan simple como la dimension minima de pieza habitable, realemente da para pensar como y por lo visto Monica ya lo ha estado haciendo con su instalacion...realemente buena la idea, espero que ponga imagenes la instalacion en su blog.

Un saludo!

PS: En Holanda la diemension minima habitable es de 1,80 x 1,80 x 2,60; ahí ya la cosa se complica mas para hacer un salon de ella...ya es dificil hacer un dormitorio! sin embargo todas las viviendas tienen una habitacion de esas dimensiones...

Gracias por el link Jazz

Se me hace increible que en Europa vivir en una caja y en espacios reducidos sea inovacion. La sociedad capsular - fenomeno del individualismo.

Hola Rene! mi nombre es Fernando, soy estudiante de quinto ano de Arquitectura en Cal Poly Pomona, California. Como estudiante de quinto ano tengo que desarrollar mi thesis, previo a graduarme. Tu trabajo me a interesado bastante y creo que tu conocimiento sobre Tijuana y la frontera me han influido enormemente para escojer un sitio en esta area.
Unos de los requisitos para desarrollar la thesis is entablar entrevistas con algunos expertos, y creo que tu serias una persona indicada, me gustaria si fueras tan amable de ayudarme un poco, espero y no sea de mucha molestia.
De antemano muchisimas gracias.

...justo hoy hablaban del proyecto del
link en la bbc... y si, lo puedes ver
como 'capsular', aunque tambie'n desde
el punto de vista sesentero de comunidades
celulares, i'ntimamente saturadas...
...incluso, tal vez, contrarias al
'individualismo' desde el momento en
que la vida que se debe llevar en
las unidades es bastante asce'tica...
