chamber of reflection
This exercice was based on a self choosen curious traditional building of Porto town center. It was asked to take an abstract aproach to the original building as a massive body, that exteriorly could take traces of the original house, but focusing on windows proportions, composition and curious interior spatial development.
This proposal wants to declare a statement of need to get away from everyday life and take time to think about basic ideas of being. It creates various spaces and litle details that forces people to get to the next one, forcing a conscious next step until they can see the bigger picture and the reality with clearer eyes and mind.
Mac DeMarco's song, Chamber of Reflection was an influence to this little exercice.
