The structure of a city is related to time, space and existence. Cities are real dynamic systems, chaotic descriptions. Had we conceived cities as dynamic structures, we would have learned from the beginning that architecture is related to innovation and sustainability. Nowadays, architecture has many things to say about the real change and the real need for a shift towards sustainability. We want to talk from scratch about innovation, social behaviour, nature, growth, time, change, sustainability, weather, citizenship, atmosphere, water, adaptability, welfare and environment.
We use research as a technical tool to work on diversity, an open future, emotion, imagination and a complete portfolio to establish a dynamic process that will help us formulate concepts concerning architecture and urban life. In dynamic systems, time and space are interdependent, there is no apparent center or order. Networks connecting city spaces are instruments for understanding their structural functions. Diagrams and city maps depend on the network’ shape and quality. In this research, networks are based on cultural background. New policies for sustainable cultural thought will become the answer to future design questions and new identity systems.
The result of this research project would be exhibited at the 15th Venice Biennale through a removable installation built in Spain and moved to Venice during May 2016. The installation would be accompanied by videos with material recorded in situ in each of the cities under study, as well as a book published in collaboration with the University of Alicante.
