Following up the discussion we had on Tuesday, I started thinking what do I really want to take from each grain:
Calvino:As conceptual starting point I want to keep Calvino’s talks where he defines his values through its opposite .
Fat: the grave
2029: the network
3D printing(additive layered technique): subtracting layered technique
Kitchen Debate: the debate
Piss paintings: Copper (oxidation)
So how do we define architecture through something that it is not?
I started thinking processes of erasure and I came up with the idea of the copper mine.
The idea for the copper mine came not only from ”piss painting” but from the process of 3d Printing. Since 3d printing is an additive layered manufacturing technique what would it be its opposite? A subtracting layered technique.
