Spatial Structure


Section Review

Pezo von Ellrichshausen, the eponymous firm of Chilean partners, Mauricio Pezo and Sofía von Ellrichshausen, have put together a delightful and beautiful longform essay that parallels the development of their spatial practice. In over a decade of constant academic and professional practice, as a parallel enquiry to the contemplation and production of buildings, this essay is rooted in a reciprocal motivation: the basic assumption that architecture is a form of knowledge. This double essay is an attempt to overtake the visual, technological, political or social practice in order to explore the very meaning of the most primary formal attributes of a room, even before that room is configured as such.
