BETWEEN THE SCANSCAPE AND THE FREE-FIRE ZONE.
Antonio Giráldez López and Pablo Ibáñez Ferrera
Friday 19th of May
This research / action will focus on analyzing the mechanisms of spatial control that, nowadays, shape the cities as active vectors of public space construction. A control that happens not only through the hyper-vigilance of static enclosures, but also requires exceptional mechanisms capable of generating selective, heterogeneous and instantaneous spatiality. Delving into the internal logics of this space management system will reveal its profound implications on the architectural and urban levels, revealing a series of elements turned into tools for building, controlling and manipulating the environment.
A research / action format is proposed that leaves behind the asepsis of the laboratory, giving space to the unexpected.
The action is structured through a tour of the control areas in Lavapiés. A constellation of locations through which to reflect from the territory on the aspects and agents involved in urban control and, in addition, evidence with concrete material each setting. The main objective of the action will be to analyze the control devices and urban safety, focusing on explaining on the ground the internal characteristics or logics. Only through this system, a multiple revision from the territory itself, with its characteristics, complexities and dynamics, can be understood through what architectural tools is articulating the control and, therefore, the urban space.
Friday 19th of May, 10.00 h
Plaza de Tirso de Molina with Calle de la Espada
Maximum 20 people.
The research / action is not aimed at a specific group or discipline, but is open to the participation of all those interested in the construction of public space. The greater the heterogeneity - discipline, formation, origin ... - among the agents, the richer the debate can be during the course of the action.
A brief brochure will be provided with documentation regarding the action itself and each of the settings to facilitate reference to materials, documents and concrete images.
