How to engage architecture, infrastructure and nature into a new form of collectivism?
The future is driven towards a certain type of resistance. To generate progress you must resist several phenomenon.
To resist nostalgia, to resist politics, to resist nature, to resist utopia, to resist egos, to resist beauty, to resist consensus, to resist planification, to resist technologies, to resist graphics, to resist speed, to resist medias, to resist publicity, to resist the risk.
What if architecture could help to reconsider a certain type of hope? What if architecture became a source of confidence towards a continuous thinking without accidents of egos, political vagueness?
Architecture should resist and help to represent the "unknown", generate a new sign of endurance, potentially the only option to reveal future sources of optimism.
Architecture should not always be extra ordinary. It should reconsider its ability to be ordinary within a new type of collectivism, source of an extra ordinary urbanism.
