Infinite Openness

Cell space pretends to put into question how in today’s way of life, appliances, furniture, and other objects in general that are normal in a house can end up occupying way more space than we think. They take such an important role in the layout of a house that they are the ones that define spaces. The idea behind our analysis is to prove the huge footprint these objects occupy right now, and how if we find a way to densify, gather them in a certain space, the layout of a house will then become way more flexible. Spaces today need to have the possibility to become flexible, a multipurpose room that invites the user to do whatever it wants with it. Allowing the habitant to adapt the space to meet his/her demands. The idea is for people to be more conscient of how much space is not being used to its full potential in today’s way of life.

Architecture has lost its relationship with the surrounding nature in a way that it has even erased its existence to a point where there is no more nature present, raising a fundamental question: the place of humans on Earth and its relationship with nature. At a time where human presence over nature has never been so extreme, architecture should be the key to creating this connection. Humans build humans abandon, but nature stays.

We can no longer think of architecture without thinking of nature, conciseness towards the natural environment. Building in nature creates a contradiction. The human presence in natural landscapes is an interplay of scales, a juxtaposition of archetypal shelters against the vast sceneries, as well as a negotiation between access to the landscape and environmental conservation.
