Debauchery & Impiety: Literary Preserve
Keywords:Atmosphere , Chiaroscuro, Literary Lore , Materiality
This preservation project investigates a post-industrial building and interior – originally constructed in 1909 as a carriage factory. As part of an ongoing dimensional survey of multiple post-industrial buildings and spaces, the author performs a literary lore in conjunction with an intensely modulated series of site engagements. It is a study that takes into account the situative and performative contexts in effort to preserve the material value, and even virtuosity, manifests in such spatial volumes. The objective of the project is to make visceral our intellectual comprehension of the relationships between self and the atmospheric nature of places and their histories. Through diverse methodologies and an intense series of modulations, I have developed a highly individualized intellectual pursuit and, consequently, the ability to reconcile the role of the body as the locus of perception and spatial engagement in the interdisciplinary consideration of the post-industrial landscape as a constructed, cultural artifact. As an introduction to dealing with these issues of ‘site’, each effort involves a careful and multi-scalar examination of environmental phenomena and patterns of use and settlement, revealed and affected by the post-industrial architectural artifact. Active awareness in observation is a valuable tool for design.
