False Space
This associated project proposes an experimentation upon the fundamental relation and omnipresent architectural discourse between ornament and structure. Intending to explore the infnite field of uncategorized architectural possibilities lying in-between these two seemingly opposing notions, the installation will propose a foating “false space”.

Expanding our architectural vocabulary and getting lost in a land of no constraints or gravity, we reconsider the “false” and ask ourselves: is non-structure ornamental?

In the elevator of Culturgest, one central column and four lateral columns are discretely displaced from our structural understanding, creating in the wandering space an absurd discourse between aesthetics and technic, poetics and reason.
