The Swarm Project
Best Project of Public Building or Facility
About the project
We have always suspected that Houses and Architectures were not mere spatial shells, but real sentient beings, endowed with a secret life of their own, thus yearning for freedom, desire for flight, inebriation, beauty but simultaneously condemnation to ‘illusion and disillusionment, loneliness and melancholy.
Our Swarm Project was born in the cradles of sweet riffs among the African savannas, decides, to our astonishment, at the dawn of any day, to uproot itself from the ground and take flight into the unknown, from the Arctic ices to being lost in the silences of sidereal spaces, flanked by strange creatures, animate stardust, who guide him on a journey through space and time, from the red sands of Mars to to the exhausted civilization of New York City, abandoned by humans, now prey to new forests in the making. The Cycle is fulfilled and renewed.
