"THERE IS AIR BETWEEN THINGS It"
It seems that the way of living can be less parceled out than what we have experienced so far. The stratification and the space segregation have caused a disarticulation in our habitat. The interior and the outside, the individual and the collective, the artificial and the natural seem to be radically separated in the way we live inside cities. Facing this, how would a gradual habitat be? A place that manages to cause the air to flow between things. An explorable intermediate space able to establish diffuse relationships between its parts, where situations are a clear manifestation of the conquest of a space to be discovered.
SPIRIT OF THE PROJECT
USER / TEMPORARY INHABITANT
Users are students or professionals. They come from around the world to study postgraduate programs, or are exchange students. We think on a temporary user who brings his life in a suitcase, who generates little roots and is able to live in small spaces. The social characteristics of the user are manifested in their capacity of adaptation, eagerness to know the city and the people who live in it, they spend a lot of time outside the house and are willing to share in the public space.
Is an establishment where passengers stay, a state of inhabiting determined by time. Thus, each passenger must adapt his life to a new space. The space of the residence is given to the development of relationships between strangers, subjects to a place. Based on the idea of making the relationship between the spaces of the architectural ensemble gradual, certain space porosity has been proposed allowing relating in a more intense way the different daily activities.
