‘House in Tigre’ by FILM-Obras de Arquitectura

‘House in Tigre’ by FILM-Obras de Arquitectura /// Tigre, Buenos Aires, 2011

Many of the newer urban developments made in the last decade in the greater metropolitan area of the City of Buenos Aires, arise from the civilizing act of creating buildable land. The second act consists in creating a road layout, on top of this new plane, that orders itself in opposition to our urban tradition, an idyllic ride down an exhibit of objects of intentional luxury and exacerbated independence.

This project comes from inverting the typical object-landscape relationship that understands the house as a refuge secluded from the outside, owned but at the same time foreign, and the exterior as an observation platform for the object.
