Brief Summary

Form, function and fiction.

There is a zero degree of project when one faces a new challenge/briefing that leads to emptying the (future) object of all its mass and reducing it to a fundamental layout translated into dimensions. From this point on, only what is strictly necessary in terms of function and fiction will be allowed to concur for the object’s construction.

Function and fiction are non dissociable of form. Function relates to history and fiction leads to identification.
