Abstract spatiality and practical spatiality contemplate one another from afar.
Today the body without matter has established himself firmly, as base and foundation, beyond philosophy, beyond discourse, and beyond theory. All the objects that are created are consciously dead. To say that the discipline of Architecture is going now, ‘beyond discourse’ means that it takes in account, for the purpose of creating projects, themes that are not necessary linked to architecture, and those inherently related with the profession are slowly and endlessly forgotten.
Some architects prefer having it understood that they create by a specie of fine frenzy intuition, others through public discussions with partners and the community, and others based on programmatic or hard intellectual logics. I am a little suspicious about the process of creating, as it implies something always new and is always, in some extent, personal and intimate. The openness of the process for some architects, will lead, anyway and in any given context to the simplification and the selection of solutions by the most powered. It is to say that, at the end, and despites any intention and speculation of flexibility, the architectural project will be particular and personal, in biggest or smaller scale depending on the architect and its means, keeping the public behind the scenes, at the purposes seized only at the last moment, at the innumerable glimpses of ideas that didn’t arrive to the maturity, at the cautious selections and rejections.
