“…just as the process of the invention of america’s geographical or corporeal being made it necessary to abandon the archaic insular concept of the physical world, so the process by which america actualized the possibilities of its spiritual being made it necessary to abandon the no less archaic insular concept of the historical world as something peculiarly belonging to europe.” – edmundo o’gorman

iwan baan – sanctuary circle by derek dellekamp (2010)
yup, a young hare has been dormant for a while. i wish i were trekking through mexico, but in reality its only been another busy semester of work. currently enjoying a small break; everything at utsoa stops during latitudes, a great symposium that brings together architects from across the various latitudes of the americas.
above is piece by a young architect from mexico, derek dellekamp. sanctuary circle is one part of a series of points along a pilgrimage route in mexico. i’d post more images but this star studded project has already made waves in the blog world.
if you live in austin, texas walk on down to battle hall for some great lectures during this years latitudes symposium. i hope to post a few responses in the coming days.
go for a walk
