The Translucent House is an experimental dwelling prototype developed
by the architect Alfons Soldevila
between 1995 and 2002 at the School of Architecture of Barcelona.
The images registry
of The Translucent House displays the building process as much
as the excepcional features of luminosity, transparency and flexibility
conditioning the behaviour of its inhabitants. These features generate
a set of theoretical writings
around concepts as translucence and experimentation, and, at the same
time, they offer a unique opportunity to invent singular objects
in order to resolve specific requests of habitability.
is an experimental browser interface developed specifically for The
Translucent House by Catarina Simão and Lupe Escoto, in collaboration
with Pancho Tolchinsky and Álex Posada.
An experimentation with the medium allowed to create access to the information
through a ludic and random process corrupting the website contents.
At the same time, it reveals noise as a document and space representation
of The Translucent House.
