cara LIBERATORE: This project considers rationality both as a problematic construct and as fundamental tool for architectural reinvention. Since we construct reality as a kind of fiction rather than discover it in the world, then the true Real only occurs in the moment in which rationality ceases to function. Counterintuitively, however, in order to produce any kind of freedom from rationality, architecture must critically engage with rationality itself and attempt to dismantle rationality from within. As a second-order procedure, the irrational real has the potential to exist both as a technique of codification and as a form of architectural experimentation.
