The first issue, The Ambition of Scale, is the beginning of the search for a connection between the mind and the activities of a person. If societies are represented by their actions and our actions are extensions of our mind, is the architects’ mind present in their architecture? Which are their ambitions? Can we find psychology in the form?.
MOMENTUM arises as a response to a certain environment, where images potential is reduced to a quick and ethereal use that represents basic information.
 

Description of project by MOMENTUM

Conceived as a reaction to the insane amount of inputs and images to which we are exposed on the Internet, it proposes to open a new conversation and to go back to carefully selected personal references that will allow to represent a point of view on a certain topic, finding out new ways of thinking.
