What questions does the project raise and which does it address?
I would say, all the issues are around this main question: what could be a shrewd reason to live together in the present? It seems problem occurs when we perceive ourselves being on this world rather than of this world . When it comes to possession we are insatiable, but we deify ourselves from actually belonging to this world. When current cities are primarily built upon human activity, our reasons of staying together don’t make sense. However, if we consider the ecosystem as a more diverse integrity with all the living and non-living including ourselves, we could find a thorough connection for existence. Thus the outdated idea that human beings are encroachments for the nature therefore they should be separated – being imprisoned in the cities, apartment cells etc. – is initially a problematic approach because it operates on the assumption that humans are not of this world.
Then other questions come to one’s mind; how do we rediscover our nature to be of this world? One possible answer is to, live like the older times when humans were not ruling the world and were aware of its strong connection. The other would be assuming we are living in a complete different system. However, the first would be ignoring the ever developing civilization like a Luddite.. and the second to shun all the difficulties of reality and built another utopia.
Here, I concentrated what architecture could do for this issue. I thought a new prelude, in fact, would lead us to a different end. This was when paper-being came to existence, to start a parallel evolution. Thus the project became an experiment of subverting the urban process. Instead of starting the life by human activity, it could start by something far-less anthropocentric  and built all its connections till human beings…In this way, we could have a different story. #art #architecture #koozarch #artitecture
