Metaprene: How to Un-Architecturize


METAPRENE

Known for designing the built environment Architects are given the task of solving more than just the basic necessities of shelter. They must understand theory, sociology, contextual constrains, environmental forces, and aesthetics. Yet it is my belief that the major constrain that architects face is the constrain of working within their own field, every solution to a problem (that be it sociological or anthropological) ends up as a Building. Metaprene hints at a new beginning for architects to break away from the old and deal with the new. To provide and solve problems with more than just a building and what better way to showcase these thoughts than to solve the problem which gave root to architecture.

Shelter.
