The Open System
- Wolf D. Prix
It would be ideal to build architecture without objectives and then release it for free use.
There are no longer any enclosed spaces in these interlacing, opening buildings: only vaguely designated areas. Divided and developed however the occupants choose.
The differentiated spatial situations no longer separate - at most, they present the challenge of taking possession of the space.
We can’t prove it, but we strongly surmise that self-confident forms, made available to use and shape freely - not repressively administrated, but run in a friendly way - must have consequences for an occupant’s development of a creative self-concept.
