After climbing the hill we thought, ingenuously, that the best way to settle here would be to lie down on a carpet protected from the sun by a parasol.
A carpet that we’d be able to wrinkle to be more comfortable, a parasol that rises and goes down, changing the character of the space that it covers, adaptable to the positions of the body.
House and body are recognized in that both are opened systems, in constant exchange with the exterior.
It would be interesting also to prolong a bit the experience of ascension, to construct a new top, to inhabit the peak.
so we digged a huge hole
to built an underground level over the ground
just to cover it all again
and fill this with concrete
one day, it all appeared.
