This project is an introspection, which uses the image as the main tool, questioning the role of “architecture” in desolate landscapes, inhabited by human beings.
These thoughts are materialized through the image, by proposing to place elements of architectural character – in the traditional way: volumes, walls, windows, roofs, etc. – in distant landscapes, unattainable in some cases or simply inhospitable. In order to think about architecture, its insertion in the context and the genesis of its architectural connotation.
Given this, the following questions arise:
a) Architecture always depend of its “function” to be considered as such?
b) Can “function” be detached from it?
c) If something is designed, in order to be empty, not to be used, or hidden in the remotest of inhospitable landscapes, is architecture?
d) What gives architecture, an architectural connotation?
In this case images can be used to think about these problems, in order that everyone can reflect about when something can be architecture. Finally, the project wants to ask if architecture must adhere to the “function”, the form, the context or if it can be interested in the field of exploration, banal and meaningless?
