Urban Filters #2

“We are interested in the surface, but we like to see it in relation to the volume.

Reacting to the conditions of our contemporary places frequently requires us to operate with non-Platonic volumes that are more ragged, fragmented and appropriate.

Finally the surface appears, the final limit of the object, of the space.

Defining its consistency is a complex operation …

Sometimes we have to build it as a hard, reflecting or absorbent facing.

The limit as the end.”

Josep Lluís Mateo
