The founding principles of civilizations arise from urban cultures nourished by symbols, beliefs and
utopias engraving identity references and generating the memory of places. Since ancient times,
utopian architectures have been dreamed (ATOPOS) expressing an escape from history. Since Ezekiel
and Babylon, Homere and the Champs Elysees to the Utopian Island of Thomas More, visions of
timeless cities have been illustrated compiling a moral vision of the world.
Through a dialogue between the architecture of man and nature, the artworks will question the
position of man within the city as a global, abstract and even elusive identity.
This position is
equivalent to the 3 periods / attitudes defined by Zygmunt Bauman:
â€¢ Pre-modern: utopia of the game warden, defendant of the natural
â€¢ Modern: gardener wanting to organize his space, submitting nature
to an order he decides
â€¢ Contemporary: utopia of the hunter who kills until his carnier is full.
The flight forward that does not fear deregulation
The artworks represent the second period, an interpretations of civilizationsâ€™ urbatopia of Machu
Pichu Site. By a serie of articulated plans including diverse perspectives and vanishing points, this
unique architectural writting generate a timeless urban artefacts, as an ultimate man-made
expression of the holistic principles. The artwork evokes a mise-en-abÃ®me of pre-Columbian
architecture and urban planning generated through this intimate relation with naturesâ€™
characteristics and environment.
Poem linked written by me ( on the artwork with invisible ink)
â€œ The sun is looking at me while the moon cradles me. So many human sacrifices have been living
within me because I could not prevent urban torture. My city heart winds through this worried facesâ€™
nature . I tamed its silouhette sculpted to offer the curves engraving the future of our past. Time will
tell me if I have been able to unite the souls in wisdom. This Architecture might be struck by laziness.â€
