The city has defined itself, since its origin, as a double territory with two qualities: to form a delimited space and, within that space, to connect to other territories. The elements of the city evolve in time, allowing its territory to grow out of its geographical and tangible limits.  As a delimited space, it develops a public perception, not only visible (with the right to be overseen) but also accessible (with the right to be visited and experienced) by its inhabitants.

Having explored and experienced diverse aspects of the city during the three month residency program, Klaus Fruchtnis and Pau Garcia agreed to collaborate on a perception: forms that appropriate both time and space in order to create a new physical yet perceptual way to rediscover the city.Common ground: GPSme / Exitum, proposes flexible, simple volumes and continuous surfaces that translate their experience on the territory.

“The urban landscape, among its many roles, is also something to be seen, to be remembered, and to delight in.” The Image of the City, Kevin Lynch
