A System of healing environmental units operating over the clashed between landscape and self-constructed building environment. After the massive collapse of industrial, a series projects emerge from shooting down factories, making infrastructure public, collective and alive. The technological paraphernalia became an artificial subtracts, available to reestablish the order of an imbalance planet. A new aesthetical and operational instrumentality raised from ashes of a manicurist culture of objects. A new values of the material world pop ups from the scares of a inconsistent building environment. The vision of a clean future, of democratic technological society remaining in a loops of non-evolutive system and hierarchical intercorrelations. A blinded society that falling in part relays on its own waste and principle.

INFRASTRUCTURE AS TRAVEL SUPPORT_Road infrastructures constitute one of the most significant forms of Territorial Domain. They provide connections for Urban Areas, reduce travel periods, and increase the number of possible destinations. This shows signs of urban development, but also represents an act of segregation. Though they connect long distances, they divide bordering zones, causing undetermined situations, undefined thresholds and, according to Augé, non-places or spaces of anonymity. Poverty has seen velocity as a way out. Necessity has encouraged these operations, finding in mobility a platform for new ways of informal occupations. To this effect, the infrastructural system traces a movement that defines travel, not only as the significance of a destination, but also as a projection of time, an active period, a type of public place: ephemeral, temporary, movable or transitory. It is therefore a politic act, a programmatic foundation, an opportunity for social reinsertion and for the most sophisticated environmental techniques. Finally, within the scope of Utopia, it represents someone’s possibility to have a future.
