Excerpt : “Architecture must be understood as a strategic attitude regarding space and resources. Common Field aims to discuss architecture in its most literal meaning: a collective and strategic knowledge that is and could be applied by everyone, in any community, environment or culture, through a series of mechanisms, devices, structures and forms. To build up a Common Field requires to assess the idea of common sense, a critical concept in the present context of global neoliberalisation and political decay. Hence, we claim for a a critical and optimistic attitude towards physical and cultural contexts, policies, briefs and clients, architecture can appropriate reality, in radical and unexpected ways from research to construction —, making visible its potential and contradictions, developing projects that enable emancipatory ideas, thus building as a common field.”
