suckerPUNCH: Describe your project:
yW: Firstly, for me what is the dream of architecture? And, how could this dream happen?
IN SHORT, my dream is ‘against’. Architecture against capital rules. Architecture IS against constraints. Architecture IS against the people who have the real power but are doing things which they know are not good, but still do it because it can bring them more profit. This attitude of ‘against’ is my dream and the idea of a city with no dead end is just one tangible instance of this attitude in a very specific social context. and then How can you be ‘against’ the knife if you are just the fish on a chopping board ? You must be ‘against’ it wisely, and that means sometimes you should be a little slippery. and well prepared.
When you can’t force it to happen, you should hide it. Camouflage it, make it appear to serve the demands of irresponsible capital. and as time passES by, architecture stays. Be patient, wait for the opportunity to reveal the real intention. WAIT FOR THE CHANCE TO disclose the latent dream.
And that is my thesis.
