La Quintessence de l’Ar(t)chitecture
Archivo Pavilion, Mexico City
Competition entry

Trompe l’oeil
Where is Architecture?
Where is Art?
The relationship is ambiguous,
The scales have been blurred.
The Construction/Art will disappear,
The Model/Architecture will subsist.

It is an illusion play.
Vice versa
The space becomes art, while,
The object becomes architecture.
It is a scale play.
Perception becomes critical.
Coup de théâtre
Le Modul’Or (the golden main unit) becomes evident…
