From the primary caves, it took centuries to overcome the home’s privateness. Contemporary courtyards, meandering accesses, correct shadows. The proper use of sunshine and think about, little openings in thick partitions.
Right this moment’s structure has forgotten the significance of privateness and has succumbed to exhibitionism. Nice home windows in skinny partitions trying nowhere ,displaying every part. Altering thriller for the evident.
“La madriguera (the burrow)” pretends to get the home again to its essence, claiming the significance of the introverted towards the extroverted.
The home as a lair, a hideout, a shelter. A mirrored image which distorts and expands the backyard, whereas confuses and protects. I can’t guess the within, a bit nearer, now i can peep via the nice silver oculus drilling the reflection.
