This was my submission into a competition called 120hours, a competition where you are given 120 hours to respond to a given prompt that is given the day of the start of the competition.
- - A House Without Function - -
In the present time the architectural discourse has been shifted to a purely political and programmatic agend. You are requested to take an antithectical position in order to think about architecture in its most essential and fundamental values.
The current tendency implies a hierarchical order that doesn't consider composition and tectonics until the end of the development of a project.
The aim is to revert the normal sequence of the design process. Architectural choices will define a project based on pure spatial qualities rather than economic or programmatic organisation.
You are requested to design a house. The house will be a place suitable for human scale. A primary space that is conceived through your own intimate, personal and critical vision of architecture.
Is it then possible to imagine architecture without site and program? If so how can they complement initial spatial qualities? In the final moment you should investigate these questions and reflect upon them.
A reflection of max 150 words about the project

This was a very interesting competition. Very vague and difficult prompt to grasp. Lots of hard work went into this, but I would more than anything like any critiques or pointers anyone might have of my submission! I will be further developing this a little bit before putting it into a portfolio and would appreciate any input
