The method is grounded in the act of balance.
As an initial exercise,
a sequence of renders is produced.
Each image showing
a new substraction of matter.
The process is deliberately pushed
to an extreme point,
in order to include both, the old mansion
and the new Mission, in the implications of each time.
A block of Iranian Travertine
carved in order to find the final shape of the project.
To make a face to face with the existing building
in order to establish a dialogue between Cultures.
To attach past and present with the treatment
of the garden and the enclosure
in order to include timeless modernity elements
of Iranian culture.
