Over one hundred square meters -total surface of the
remodeled LC1248 apartment by Ricardo Agraz-, architecture, art, design and
photography have come together to explore all the possible variations of this
The result brought a rich series of versions, or else, spatial metamorphosis
acheived by the replacement of objects and the renewal of light design, which
then again created unique and differentiated atmospheres. Architecture, hence,
became scenery, whereas art and design, the characters of meaning.
Therefore, combining architectural distribution and creative practice gave out
a set of variables where spatial characteristics can change and exchange
according to the placing of art work and furniture.
Furthermore, with the idea of surpassing simple habitability limits, showing
the peacefull coexistence of the diverse roles and enhancing space and budget
shortage, there was an evident contrast between housing production and life
The rationed surface of LC1248 was optimized, becoming the platform for every
single one of the aesthetic expressions in order to let them carry on a shared
dialogue, this is, one does not stand above the other, while each one is
necessary to hold it through.
In this exercise, which was later on named Spatial Metamorphosis, the set of
probabilities was captured in images where the individual and groupal artistic
capacities were presented as an existing collision of creativity. Architecture,
art, design and photography, portraited in order to leave the evidence of it’s
very own reason to be.
