ESTIRANT EL FIL

Installation invited by the Transéphèmeres de la Xarxa Transversal project

The installation aims to represent one of the most characteristic and primitive behaviours of human beings at every stage of their lives, that which has motivated them from the beginning and encouraged them to advance: the desire to know more and go further, to discover, a curiosity for the unknown.

A behaviour that is not easy and always results in complications; it is not a straight road with a visible and defined destination but one that leads to unknown places with unexpected twists and turns, where the simple can be complicated and the most obvious out of sight.

The intervention begins at the entrance to the building with a coloured ribbon that invites you to follow it, to discover and walk through the space to see where it goes. When you reach the courtyard, there is a blank, motionless cloth, stuck in time, aligned and inert, through which the line runs unaffected, sometimes on top and sometimes weaving in and out of it, but always following its own path.

It encourages the user to get lost in the space, to want to discover the destination and whether it has an end or is only part of the way.

Together they form UNDOS arquitectura, a close and meticulous studio located in Bordils, Girona. They define themselves as a balanced combination of reflection, listening, efficiency, technique and aesthetics. Their values can be seen in each of their projects, creating pleasant, comfortable and soulful spaces.

Their architectural services also provide specific solutions for government bodies, focusing on mobilising unused housing and transforming urban spaces so that access to housing is truly an accessible right for every citizen.
