Our response to the theme of the Biennale Architettura 2023, The Laboratory of the Future, can be read as an encounter of different horizons, allowing us to take a close look at the Uzbek architectural heritage, to delve into its past in order to find the necessary tools for the elaboration of tomorrow’s world, unbuilding modernity together by questioning the notion of archaism.
Participation is above all collaborative, placing the human being at the centre of our approach.
Through the exchanges between us and architectural students, craftspeople, and associated artists, a collective proposal will emerge, creating a sensitive and poetic architecture, reflecting a truly contemporary and contextual practice.
