Abstract

It began with the question, “What if the Modern Man was successful in his dominion over nature?”

By means of Architecture this thesis became a speculation and commentary on the human condition. But, more than that, this is a story that tells the evolution and outcome of a series of questions and inquiries into the relationship between Architecture, art and the mythopoetic-narrative realm.
