Description/Abstract

The project lies at the intersection between the wall as device of separation + text as narrative of separation. The wall is re-examined as a LIVING architectural element that acts as an ACTOR - a necessity - in the translation of text to architecture within a city palimpsest. The wall’s capacity to create limit and separation (walled sanctuary) will be explored within the dense context of the contemporary city, wherever that might be.

The wall is not passive, it is not a given, but a constructed entity that addresses problems of space defining and ritual in a direct/efficient/explicit way that only architecture can achieve.

The translation will be made by extraction of operation methods and techniques from projects that have challenged the role of the wall within translated narratives. Such operations and techniques - scaling and superimposition - will be applied to a narrative of exile.
