Singapore - The Unfeasible Order of Things

2021-ongoing

"One cannot make architecture without studying the conditions of life in the city"

Architecture of the City, Aldo Rossi.

 

"No se sabe apenas nada de él, salvo que ya ha salido pero todavía no ha llegado, que antes o después de su tránsito era o será padre de familia, ama de casa, oficinista, obrero sindicado, funcionario, amante o panadero..., pero que ahora, en tránsito, es pura potencia, un enigma que desasosiega."

El Animal Público, Manuel Delgado

"Hardly anything is known about him, except that he has already left but has not yet arrived, that before or after his transit he was or will be a father of a family, a housewife, a clerk, a unionised worker, a civil servant, a lover or a baker. .., but now, in transit, it is pure potential, a disquieting enigma."

The Public Animal, Manuel Delgado

This project is a follow-up to  Jakarta - Modest Interventions and Minor Improvisations, 2015-16. In The Unfeasible Order of Things I try to explore how unreasonable and unrealistic it is to always pursue excellence and how unpredictable human mediations find a way to upset plans of complete order and safety. Cities are as unpredictable as the humans living in them.
