The Collapsing House appears to be a fragmented one because it is a representation of one’s souvenir of a house (selective memory of certain rooms) but, it also triggers the imagination if we try to “visualize” the rest of the house and the transitions between each space-event.

The person evolves in the house and his movements generate the transformation of the environment. The relation body-environment, as the architects Arakawa and Gins develop in their work, is extremely important in this project.

The organic shape of some elements evokes the analogy of the body-house but also allows a more challenging evolution of the person’s body.
