Building System Applied pt.2 – Modern Ruin

The abandoned modern ruin does not require physical support. The gestural presence of the creature reinvents the space, giving life back to it. The newly reformed infrastructure redesigns the circulation, opens up or encloses the space, using the gestures of the Rocaillebulary. It is a structural ornamentation of the space.
