  string(1947) "In opposition to the polished and finished object, a multitude of precarious processes. In opposition to the name, the verbs. In opposition to individual creations, we propose assemblages and collective productions. In opposition to Architecture, minor architectures. In opposition to tabula rasa, we propose to visit a landfill, where we will find all the materials to alter, pirate, subvert, correct, modify, reorient, retouch, (partially or totally) destroy, dissect, desecrate, demolish, tear down, retouch, manipulate, deterritorialize, suppress, assemble, graft. All of these processes are production modes that resist and reject the logics of a system capable of converting any product into a commodity available to the highest bidder. Let's look carefully at marginal positions -in the folds and at the very heart of the system itself-, where we could find (individual or collective) resistance practices, with the sole purpose of generating alternative strategies, incapable of being captured.

La Producción: Cuatro estrategias menores (Production: four minor strategies) proposes to delve into marginal or peripheral production processes that are not based on ex-novo creation but on the manipulation, alteration, subversion of existing fragments. Four minor strategies were chosen to explore these resistance mechanisms: scrapping, hacking, sampling and non-doing.

  string(1953) "On occasion of the launch of Future Architecture in Barcelona, together with the presentation of Archifutures publication series and the YTAA (Young Talent Architecture Award) 2016/18 catalogues, My Bookcase was invited to run a workshop at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion. The workshop took place in July 2018, and reflected on the future of architecture and the act of publishing with a group of students of the Barcelona Architecture Center (BAC) Summer Course 2018, directed by Miguel Roldan with the assistance of Zana Bosnic, and local participants.

Working with a selection of texts from the mentioned publications and images from the book ‘Mies van der Rohe. Barcelona 1929’ (2018) as the departing point of the workshop, participants were able to collectively create a bespoken publication. Taking the role of the editor as a group, we looked at the usually hidden processes of creating an editorial compilation. The selection of articles in a compilation follows a certain narrative, enabling the reader to create connections between them. The sequence of the articles also offers cohesion to the publication as a whole and its different voices, generating an alive thinking process.

The workshop made visible those thinking processes that are needed to classify, relate and generate an order amid different voices. Working as a group we enabled this thinking to be a collective one, adding our voice to the ones of the articles and enabling a conversation between book and reader.

The workshop was run by My Bookcase and initiated by dpr-barcelona & Fundación Mies. More info: My Bookcase"

  string(1297) "The demise of a building, suggests a singular event. The idea of killing a building represents already technical difficulty on its own, where architecture is inherently an act of resistance. Doing it from a legal mandate, incorporates law and its assumptions where death is seen as an act of justice, a necessary punishment to keep the general order of things.

In Articulo Mortis: Chronicles of Convicted Architecture looks at the application of the law on the architectural object. It explores the idea of an architectural demise as a punishment, applied exclusively to a building by the same law and its documentary-legal processes that can convict it of a crime, and that can only exist and be carried out with in a context of a state of order. It displays the differences between the legal and the architecture world, their time, space and modes of representation. Documenting the architecture that is being repressed, judged, sentenced and condemned by the law, the buildings that have been convicted and sentenced to death, and turned into the architecture that is no longer an ally and whose affectations, passive or active, are a threat according to the law.

  string(2237) "Beyond dimension, Meraviglioso Urbano explores ambiguity and disembodiment through a series of abstract stages. Connected and immaterial, an archipelago of cultural commons grows.

Born out of the need to react to the troubled atmosphere suffocating Rome during the 70s, the Estate Romana took cultural initiatives out into the public space. Architecture’s contribution took shape in ephemeral projects, creating proper scenarios for both the events and everyday urban life. The term ‘meraviglioso urbano’ described the possibility to amaze and transcend the limitations of physical, permanent architecture. On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of Estate Romana, five practices—SOCKS, Florian Bengert, FAKT, Studio No, and Lucia Tahan—were invited to design five ephemeral installations at MAXXI National Museum of 21st Century Arts in Rome.

Meraviglioso Urbano is a research on the idea of an urban wonder, a way of seeing ordinary places as extraordinary ones.

Sitting atop the Villa Aldobrandini garden in Rome—an elevated archipelago-like set of green islands—the proposed installations are nine stages for reading literature in dialogue with one another. The immaterial and the ephemeral, embodied in a landscape of simultaneous voices, are deployed as the core of the intervention. Perceptual ambiguity stitches together the intervention’s formal language.

This book was exhibited alongside a series of models of the project, silver prints and documentation at MAXXI and the I Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism from July to November, 2017. The publication was produced as part of the workshop The Theaters of Culture. Ephemeral projects for the eternal city as part of Future Architecture platform for MAXXI Museo delli Arti del XXI Siecolo. Based on Bom Bom Bay, a story by Ruohong Wu.
