Invisible Forces
Juan Baez
If Aurelis’ theory of the constrained cities would have been the norm and all cities where once build under a constrained size and form. How then would these cities react to the unstoppable growth of networks? How would this constrained cites would have started to connect with each other? What would be the forces that guide its roots to merge? This is an experimental work in which the conditions stated before will serve as an excuse to explore the connection and merging of different grid typologies into one main grid to be studied through some experimental diagrams focused on Allen’s ideology of fields and conditions. Using the details of nine different cities cropped in the same size and scale, I will then connect each city in different way exploring every time a different phenomenon of invisible force. The idea is that each new grid will be a physical representation of the forces implied in the exercise and depending on the type of connection that was done from city to city we will be able to determine the type of force that was implied to that exercise. The grid typology of each city will work as the main logic of its own extent but the directionality and division will be controlled by the invisible force of the exercise. At the end we should have a full mass grid instead of various distinct ones. And taking the idea that “Form matters, but not so much the forms of things as the forms between things” we will extract the resulting grid to study the different and unique formations that could possibly emerge from this exercise.
