Casa Sacco Vanzetti y Palacio Álamos

by Javier Arce

JA explores the neighborhood where the general experience is exposed, a neighborhood that saw promises of glory that were never fulfilled, as so many other projects. Amidst these utopias of innovation, the neighborhood was left abandoned, incapable of carrying out what was promised, as part of that latin American fatality that puts us between the ruins of modernity. Arce focuses his attention on two uninhabited houses, whose styles reveal two different times in the history of Architecture, and he then carefully draws them with coal on opposite walls of the designed room. However, the drawing will not fixed, and it is intentionally left at the mercy of any deterioration caused by scratches or the touch od visitors. This is indeed paradoxical, as all contact involves the desire for physical verification, and the representations on their own existence.
