Designed by Aleph Zero + Juliano Monteiro, the [DES]dobrar Memorial is a space composed by reflective elements which is therefore a cloudy limited space: in, out, far and near, front, back, unique, multiple, real reflection. An important element of the project is one that activates and gives meaning to the objects: the user / observer. Unlike a mere passive spectator, is the observer who composes the piece through its position and its motion in space. Such movement is yet ‘reflected’ by objects that “dance” as the passage of passersby and accuses them of being they, too, actors in a multiple reality, dynamic and interconnected. More images and architects’ description after the break.
Reflection is a perverted repetition. Twists, inverts and multiplies the surrounding space embarrassing location references. On campus, whose configuration search optimization and readability from the repetition of answers and signs pre-established, rises the possibility of a singular place where this same repetition multiply itself exponentially in a way to materialize itself as object at the same time it influences and is influenced by a specific location.
