  • Perverse Unité

    Perverse Unité is a project about what constitutes a floor plan and a section. The axonometric drawing is not simply a slice of a three-dimensional object (actual or to be built). It's an expression in the graphic space of an idea of a mass with a void. Looking at the history of plans and sections, it's possible to advocate for the autonomy of the axonometric drawing not as a representation tool but as a speculative drawing.

    If in the 20th century the Unité d'Habitation was about social welfare state owned cheap housing and the humanist idea of the city, in the 21st Century it became about neoliberal capitalist investment and the post-humanist global city. 2016
