  • Scenes and scenarios, techniques and tactics, physical and theoretical models to work with the ruins of modernity, narrowing a new life to scrap and rubble. The waste represents a new object of interest for the project, not only as material to be converted but also as a matter which requires a revision of the tools of transformation: analysis, interpretation, definition of architecture and landscapes. The waste as a palimpsest on which to stratify new realities, the separate projects collection as a survival device for systems and their fragments, the memory as a platform of references from which to establish unprecedented spatial and temporal coordinates, collecting as overhaul operator in constant rearrangement of fragments of the past, the comparison as a vector of re-signification are the chances that the project puts in place to build a second dimension of sense of what was rejected. Placements, decomposition, multiplication, arrangements, repetitions are organizational structures to work with the portion and not with the whole, with the waste and not just the finished work.
