WORKSHOP AT COPENHAGEN ARCH. SCHOOL by David A. Garcia
Continuously avoided by the architectural discipline, the energy systems, services and general “arteries” of any built environment, have been hidden, masked or even ignored. Different movements in the architectural tradition have embraced the spacial potential hidden/ignored in these systems. A vital example is Center Pompidou, where ventilation systems become external elements of the facade. What if this attitude was extended to all the elements of a built environment? What if electric systems, solar panels, ventilation, sewage etc... become the architecture, the spaces we inhabit, with out hiding or masking them?
