Primera Piedra (First Stone)
by Joao Rodríguez
The First Stone is the first intervention to a landscape, the first possibility to architecture.
Build or destroy?
The possibility to create a respectful and coexisting space with nature.
The possibility of being sedentary when choosing a place to live.
Men stopped being nomadic, he appropriated places and what it offers, plants and wildlife have been domesticated and used for benefit of humanity.
Primera Piedra pieces 1 and 2 acrylic and canvas speak about the possibility of live in a landscape, the choice is to live it or to destroy it.
Wood houses are reference of how to use the material to represent itself.
The piece columns and flamingo is a representation of how nature and architecture merge: they represent the animal and on architectural shape.
