This is the context.
This is the story of an Architectural Model.
This is a search for architectural invariants, a quest of fluid foundations, a story of an Abstract Object in a digitized world of data.
This is a fantasy of it’s childhood, a tale of growing up, its senility. It is a story of its intellectual challenges, an articulation of its many faces and masks. It is a scenario, which is trying to challenge its ancient grandfathers by placing them in the digital environment of their grandsons.
Architectural Model, its ancestor, its successor, they are all Abstract Objects, and this is the story of
their mutations, transformations, inversions, symmetries…,
their faces, manners, portraits…,
their doubts and discussions…
