Topic of the 2019 tender

‘Second-hand: A discrete house'

Ponte Visconteo
Valeggio Sul Mincio, Italy

Programme:
A few weeks ago, I went to an architecture exhibition in Paris, very interesting, on the work of the young Japanese architect Junya Ishigami. In a video interview accompanying the exhibition, he states (quote from memory) that the architect is a "tour guide". This statement shocked me at first. Then, thinking about it, I thought it was an interesting idea: to imagine that architects travel and get to know the world that little by little they then reveal!
We ask that you show us a built or natural site that, with a minimum of intervention, can configure a discrete house.
"... the old gesture of the Platonic speculum, that of dividing the real, not between the false and the true, but between what it actually is, and the virtualities it contains, which are invisible. A tree, this tree, if it is not photographed, continues to send its images; as Bergson states: "how can we not see that photography, if it exists, is already taken, taken inside of things and for all points of space? No metaphysics, no physics even, can escape this conclusion. " (Henri Bergson, Matière et mémoire, París, PUF, 1939, p. 22)”
