RESEARCH AROUND SOUND SUBSTANCE

This research is an exploration of multiple concepts related to sounds. We believe that the perception of architecture is constructed through the diversity of sensory perceptions. Thus the synthesis between the art of space and time simultaneously informs us about the nature of a place and its use value, its destination.

We tried to understand this "sound character" and how it is intimately linked to geometric and material properties of space. We are convinced of the potential of sound as a material capable of helping in the design of architecture rich in meaning. Our goal: to broaden our field of investigation as an architect and artist and to lay the foundations, admittedly incomplete but necessary, for the idea of initiating a collective reflection on the sound matter. This fragmentary collection deals with nine subjects: sound matter, space, variability, emancipation, silence, ambient, sensoriality, sound intensity, wandering, etc. An account of the potentialities expresses the different concrete experiments.








SAFE ISLAND FOR MINORITIES

This is a center of identity expression, conceived as The New Necessary Program for the Metropolis. Its potentiality is to give wandering minorities a place to exchange, share, and struggle to manifest and express themselves as an alternative to connected platforms and social networks. The platform acts as a social condenser, where people meet between minorities and militate together to assert their rights. These minorities are attracted to this colorful space to consume and cultivate their differences, feel safe to be themselves, and join and organize around shared values. We take the intensity of the metropolis and put it on a platform in the middle of the fields. This takes up the idea of big festivals, euphoric places, a parallel world that feeds off the metropolitan intensity.
