Grans obres de l’arquitectura potencial
Guadalajara (MX), 2015
In a conversation between Kenneth Goldsmith and Carlos Bueno Vera, his translator to Spanish, the first said: “An unwritten text is the greatest work of the potential literature.” If we think of this sentence from the field of architecture, we can say: “An unconstructed building is the greatest work of the potential architecture.”
With this in mind, the act of doing is a context of negotiation with what potentially exists. Grans obres de l’arquitectura potencial brings to the architecture studio soil samples from parcels belonging to architectural projects that remained stopped. This samples are handfuls of material from sites that still await for anything to happen.
Intervention to MAIO, Barcelona.
