Mi amigo Luis Othón me manda esta información para un concurso de arquitectura interesante:
Bonfire Competition objective is:
To construct and combust a fire at Orkney’s festivities.
To use fire as that which sustains – a unique combination of constructed order and combustible disorder: Conception vs. Destruction.
To be cognizant of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, reinforcing the intrinsic link between entropy and architecture.
To take into account the chief principals: Scale, Multiple levels of intensity and materials.
To consider the history, culture and uniqueness of the Orkney Islands, their location at the top of the world – a place of alternating midnight suns and reigning darkness – lending special meaning to fire from the beginnings of the Orkney civilization to the present.
To go through the process of building a fire, to building a building with and for fire and all of its attendant meanings and myths.
To honor the fire that burns in your mind recognizing that death is an endless birth.
