Paralelo 25º-35º: 3 projetos, 3 forças da natureza, o mesmo país

Pedro Manuel Boléo de Freitas

Resumo


A vastidão de análise da escala no continente africano exige um particular entendimento do território enquanto espaço de intervenção projetual. Os três projetos sul-africanos dos quais se procura uma reflexão, têm abordagens diferentes e procuram transmitir valores de identidade concetual muito próprios das regiões onde estão edificados, contudo, transversalmente têm em comum a imensidão da escala da natureza africana e a dureza de uma inóspita paisagem. O espaço é tanto uma realidade exterior quanto uma representação.


The vastness of Africa´s scale requires a particular understanding of the territory as a space of projectable intervention. The three South Africans projects on which we demand a reflection, have different approaches and seek to convey identity and conceptual values very related with the regions where they are built. However, they have in common the vastness of African nature scale and the hardness of an inhospitable landscape. The space is both an external reality and a representation. Nature, which in his his deep sense knows nothing about individuality, thanks to the human eye that divides it in different parties and particular units, is expected to be reorganized in order to constitute that individuality that we call “landscape”. In a somewhat superficial approach, it is often said that the true “sense of nature” has only been developed in the modern era , derived from its lyricism and romanticism... It seems to me that the most primitive religions reveal just a much profound feeling of “nature” (Georg Simmel). The conception and formalization involve a general sense of the designer, encompassing a series of vectors that will surely contribute to the creative synthesis of PLACE. The failure of certain models in the creation of new “places” is largely due to the inadequate or inconsistency of the projects types, designed and implemented without the slightest reference to the existing built environment versus inhabitants / users.
