During this last days of June I’ve been working at Falstad Center on Norway for REcall Project, specifically in the area of forest. REcall seeks to formulate a new role of the architectural environment based on invigorated research on the cultural landscapes of WWI and WWII and strengthen the attention on the management, documentation and preservation of this heritage.The project group see that any cultural landscape – i.e. architecture- is characterized by its dynamism, temporality and changing priorities in social perception.We stress that the research we develop will generate the values to be protected tomorrow. On the strength of this account, our project proposes the development of sustainable and innovative architectural practices for reuse, valorisation and communication of the XXth Century European Conflict Heritage considered as Cultural Landscape.

We’ve been there with Nankin Lab, proposing a constructive system using destruction as a constructive weapon. It’s been a great success with a big feedback, whereas the participation of visitors has been overwhelming. We want to thank the entire organization who has proactively collaborated to make this project possible and to Elisava School of Design and Engineering of Barcelona, for all the support they have given us. We can only say one thing, hope to see you next year!
A brand experiment. Just to practice my design skills in weird fields.
