Josep Lluís Mateo answers to an old student

1. Synthetic and linear thinking: how to do both

Action (because the project is a proposition to act, to do something) is the product of synthetic thinking.

Analysis is the product of processes that are more linear or even meandering (not exactly one thing after the other). The analyses try to understand something not exactly to do something.

We need to be able to analyse the world freely and openly. more »

Josep Lluis Mateo is Visiting Professor at Harvard University’s GSD

GSD

This spring Josep Lluis Mateo is Visiting Professor in Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.

The course “Object studio” has as an objective to precisely define projects based on the simultaneous presence of three conditions:

1. Place. Here, it is the city, at the border, with the presence nearby of nature. Surrounded, dialogue with the exterior in continuity or in opposition. The exterior.

2. Content. Use. Interior. Conventional briefs (dwellings, offices…) seen from a special viewpoint that aims to discover the magic of the everyday. To analyze, observe and propose new conditions of use.

3. Material. Our projects, always starting with abstract visions, take form, become intelligible, by means of material. Architecture as the expression of physical, material culture.

Schedule:
Josep Lluis Mateo will be in residence on the following dates: January 23, February 3, 5, 17 and 19, March 3, 5, 24 and 26, April 7, 9, 21 and 23, and May 5 and 7.

Projects for the Kunsthaus Zürich extension and for a public art garden

We were to continue constructing the front that is the plaza, as the empty space currently there makes the city disappear too quickly. But Heimplatz is small and taken up with traffic, a situation that is not expected to change. more »

Museums: #3 Cultural Center in Castelo Branco

The plaza is a surface, a topography drawn out in relation to the movement of the water and built by pedreiros, following patterns that are abstract but not random.

Floating on this surface is an object. At its base, water, frozen here to form a skating rink.

Museums: #2 Museum of the History of Polish Jews, Warsaw

Restricted Competition, 2005 (Finalist)

The monument to the Ghetto Uprising, which stands in a large void without physical significance, surrounded by anonymous, ghostly buildings, interested us as a presence colonising the site. It stands on a big podium, establishing a new topographical layer and introducing a mark, a new scale of new facts.

We were also interested in the limits, the streets, but not for their form; instead we thought of them as channels, as lines of connexion, pipes for fluids. more »
