El Aleph,

Manuel Cucurell+Bruno Degiorgio+Tomas Fonturbel+Emanuel Mancini

Contrary to what we are used to thinking, moments of crisis are an extremely productive instance, as they allow us to let go of certainties and enter the realm of questions and reflections.

The duality of the construction and the void is what structures the city and it is the value of the empty spaces that gives meaning to architecture. The ability of the system to create emptiness, to create transitions, visuals, spaces; makes it the ideal method to search for a lace of the cores in the place.

MARS PROJECT III: The City,

Mario Mimoso

Earth faces a plethora of complex and interconnected problems: pollution, global warming, overpopulation, depletion of natural resources, climate change, deforestation, ocean acidification, and many more.

Inhabit the staircase,
