Abstract

KOVACS, Andrew. Proposal for collective living II (Homage to Sir John Soane). ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2017, n.97, pp.120-129. ISSN 0717-6996.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-69962017000300120.

Starting with John Soane’s house - a collection of objects that completely transforms the space of the house - this proposal reconceptualizes the value of accumulation. Turning the interior into an exterior and replacing Soane’s museum-valued objects with cheap artifacts purchased in stores, the collection is transformed into an assembly where the whole worths more than the sum of its parts.

Keywords : model; artifacts; toys; assemblage; Chicago Architecture Biennial.
