René Descartes claimed that on the whole, the design of the architecture built by one master is more beautiful and perfect than that of buildings by many architects. However, the purpose of the Archisculpture Project is to make a gigantic sculpture with a variety of building design characteristics by many different architects. This project could be described as a collage of a ‘Phantasmagoria’ that was discovered by Flâneur’s view of metropolis.
If there is the Punctum on photography, parts of architectures I chose here would be my real Punctum, and the fabrication of these forms artworks of the Archisculpture Project. Within this project, a variety of architectural elements are reborn as a gigantic and historic new sculpture. Therefore, this project is quite symbolic. The Archisculpture Project makes new stories, connecting every meaning of architecture, or makes comments or proposals by dismantling a cityscape, rather than just being beautiful as an artwork.
