    Memory

    The landscape consists of a wide plain with patches of wheat plantations, sunflowers and olive groves, an artificial and geometrical nature that changes with the seasons.

    We used the blinding light as a construction tool, in order to generate a closed sculpture-like architecture conscious of the surrounding nature.

    Outdoor spaces are enclosed – greenhouse, patio, glass cube – and as such are a contrast to the emptiness of the surrounding plain. These captured exteriors are cross-illuminated and provide diagonal views.

    A technological architecture is left aside and traditional construction is re-accepted, with mortar and lime, mud pavements and workshop locksmithing brought back through a modern language.
