    Permanent Scaffolding
    U.N. Headquarters
    [New York City, 2005]
    scenario: permanent scaffolding, becoming

    The U.N. project was about attaching a soft intervention in order to infiltrate the static system of the United Nations, which was a reaction based on the notion that the organization is founded on now-obsolete models of world council. In order to address this problem I proposed a new architectural concept that would facilitate the necessary revamping of the U.N. and help handle its issues of inefficiency and inevitable existential crisis relevant to today’s mode of world operation. It dealt with the possibilities of building the idea of “growth” and “design” convergingly to work together towards an emergent construct. Against traditional notions of architecture with a set finished product, I proposed an open-ended, never-ending construction process (both material/immaterial) that can adapt to ever constant changes brought by the site and the natural development world climate. (as permanent-scaffolding).

    Sanford Kwinter: “Architecture would ... be seen in its full proximity and intimacy with the system of forces that gives shape and rhythm to the everyday life of the body. Thus the object - be it a building, a compound site or an entrie urban matrix, insofar as such unities continue to exist at all as functional terms - would be defined not by how it appears, but rather by practices: those it partakes of and those that take place within it.”

    Neil Leach: It “registers the impulses of human habitation and adapts to those impulses,” allowing new spaces to emerge, those that were not preprogrammed but were born of need.
