The projects presented refute construction as a rational enterprise, but instead imagine it as a process simply made up of accumulations of matter, shapeless and brutal. As is the constructive process’ reality before it becomes a finished object. The approach seeks to abandon architectural formalism and the desire for a more raw and intelligible reality of architecture. The aim is therefore to reduce architecture to a skeletal state in order to understand its components and make visible the forces that pass through it. These buildings were built in an intermediate language, materially unfinished, which is why they are less like buildings than a form of "pre-architecture".
The work is built according to three degrees of reading the architecture - models (reduced model), performances (physical experience) and prototypes (scale 1 realizations). The link between these works and these different scales is the constructive gesture, each time direct and without modification. A cycle of projects entitled: Worksite I, II and III - began this research at the level of physical experience by conducting worksites as performances, without interruptions and without preliminary drawings. These performances have made it possible to produce chaotic and spontaneous fragments of architecture, with the aim of one day becoming the alphabet of a complete building. Other projects such as Building/Prototype I and II are constructions that focus more on the articulations between the elements than on the elements themselves. The crudeness of language is intensified by the enhancement of articulations: chains, concrete reinforcing bars, superpositions and accumulations.
