Layers of Desires, Wills, and Actions

The landscapes are built by layers of desires, wills, and actions: and fight to stay, between the wear and tear from the weather and the momentum of major catastrophes and minor ones though this memory that legitimates them in images. That is why each landscape has the imprint of the one who has preceded it and leaves for the future the signs of the cultures that have gone through it or have appropriated it. Somehow, each project responds to a previous spatial structure that “walks”, and that predictably behaves with its own autonomy, with limited reaction capacity.
