“Thus the temporal aspect of architecture no longer resided in its dual nature of light and shadow or in the aging of things; it rather presented itself as a catastrophic moment in which time takes things back” Aldo Rossi
The narrative begins with the epitome of man’s desire to machine experience, a cruise ship. Effectively a floating island, the life of the ship exposes how we exploit architecture and its limits to provide us with a device to contain reality. My project challenges this form of containment using the event of collision as a trigger. The death of the ship is the beginning of an ephemeral landscape, one that reveals to us the contingency of material boundaries; their battle and defeat as nature and time confronts architecture.
