Veering off from the well-lit roads of abstraction, this project explored the dark back alleys of literality. A neglected principle of interpretation and production, literality was assumed as the guiding principle of the project.
In contrast to a typology, a species constantly mutates. A species needs a lineage—it comes from other things. Where others use words like “typology,” we used words like “species.” While others look for categories, we looked for metamorphosis. This
project mutated known architecture and shamelessly exploited its clichés. Sure, clichés are boring, but a cliché is a cliché because it’s been in the world—because people have been looking at them and using them.
The site of the project is a dairy farm located on the suburbs of Rosario, Argentina in which the cows are free to roam around. The form of the machines is inspired by plushies and flowers. These floating machines are designed to float around the site and to collect and pasteurize the milk from the cows. Moreover the machines also act as an air-filter which clean the polluted air coming from the city in order to make a the farm more productive.
