The Evil Twin

Recent interest in types, precedents, and history in general, seems driven by a fear of architecture dying. Relative to the fear of dying, there are some interesting alternatives to antiquarianism. Everything dies, but there are scenarios for keeping things in some sense alive. There are ghosts (everlasting spirit), zombies (un-dead), embalming (scientific preservation), and ruins (fetishizing the dead). 
This project used taxidermy as an architectural method. Maybe in some sense, all architecture can be thought of as a form of taxidermy—an attempt to freeze time and make something dead look like it is alive. 
Computation plays a fundamental role in the production of contemporary discourse of aesthetics; current software technology has given architecture the possibility to produce change at a rapid pace. We now can visualize and manipulate geometry as active matter, forms are never static, and they are constantly actualized. This studio proposed, to conduct an extensive speculation in the taxidermy logic and construction of aesthetic instability. To radicalize the agenda of the autonomy of form, using the possibilities of frozen movement into static form. The Genealogy of the autonomy of the forms has been indivisible form the genealogy of the aesthetic paradigm, now literal can play a disruptive role in this trajectory. The project used the latest technology for design, as this technology indulges mutation as a new paradigm of architectural design.
