cuban-born and milano-based architect and artist adrian labaut hernández has created a series of fictional architecture where he questions where architecture is going as of today. in his opinion, this discipline is creating objects that are consciously dead, without a base or foundation, beyond philosophy, discourse, and theory. he states that themes that are not necessarily linked to architecture are being used, and those inherently related with the profession are slowly and endlessly forgotten.

‘about perspective’

 

 

 

instead, labaut hernández proposes to go back to the roots of the profession through five principles: architecture is a process without oppositions and consultations; architecture grows from competition; each architecture project needs to contribute to the critical nature of the discipline and expand it through its value; architecture should not just be something that follows up on events but that is the leader happening; the process of creation should never be guided by political or moral terms.
