Dear all!

As every week, a project of our friends PKMN is relevant as a reference of the week. We love them, we cannot help it. 

PARADISE LOST – PKMN architectures.

June 2013. 1st PRIZE Transitarte Competition. Curated by Ariadna Cantis

“The world was all before them, where to choose 
Their place of rest, and Providence their guide:

Through Eden took their solitary way”

Milton, John: “Paradise Lost”, Book X, 1667.

“And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents”
[Numbers 9,17]

An energetic and informative orthogonal grid in competition with the multidirectional cloud protecting the jewish people pilgrimage through the desert and turning their tents into useless devices, a new “life without objects”.

A new triangular grid depicts this ability of adaptation to the urban context, multiplying the possible directions in the urban space. The shelter of tents is suppressed by a new modular plastic forest/cloud blown up with ventilators as top of a new capital in a future low-tech classical order . A plastic and metal cloud/forest building a new pneumatic structure as Mobile Art Exhibition common roof in a new chance for searching this mythological condition suggested by Paradise Lost.
