In the Midst of the individual.

Connecting the dots, we can understand that most individuals live the life with a speed-like motion, not taking the time to actually get in tune with what surrounds them.

 

Following this particular example of this relationship built by an individual and the collective whole, it is clear that individuals distinctively support the whole and ironically fail to share or yet connect with it [in most cases]. As different as each individual may live this life, there is, for the most part, certain everyday life actions or characteristics that tie each and every one of them together. These common actions between individuals leave the improvisation and sharing on a secondary relevance stand.

When studying the ordinary and the everyday life, there is a common denominator inseparable from architecture that binds these two concepts and links them together. Everyday life has become intimately blended to routine. It is characterized by a series of repetitive events that take place within any given day and then are repeated, as if daily life were actually a cycle. Each individual wakes up, goes to work, comes home, sleeps, and life seems to breeze by without awareness. A very human aspect of life is then neglected and passed on to a secondary level of importance whether it is because production is not associated with it, because time is scarce or because it is simply forgotten. Consequently, the material world takes precedence; introspection is lost, sharing leaves the scenario.

Tormented by a feeling of un-belonging in the city and inside the buildings surrounding him , most individuals are desensitized. Intirior spaces seem bland and uninspiring, public spaces lose their main idea, the plaza has no function, and the city is a place used for transit, not inhabiting. Architecture becomes a luxury, not a neccesity, and so every day life is embedded in architecture that is un-noticed and passed by; the link between building, the space, improvisation, sharing and feeling gets broken.

There is no time to stop and feel, there is only time to produce, to make money, to go places, to get the job done. Daily life is intertwined and becomes equaled to duplication, and so humanity becomes lost to automation. This is not to say that one is right, and the other is wrong, but rather to help understand that one cannot replace the other; that it is possible to have “breaks” in between the machine-like movements of ordinary life while leaving space to feel, to share, to live, adhere both sides of the scenario and, lastly, integrate. Both are important and both are necessary, they are not interchangeable but rather key to hold a balance that fulfills very different aspects of human life.

Now that the statement is understood, the intervention can try to be almost an extent of the individuals day-to-day living. As it is known, trying to change daily routines on people can be as much of a failure; instead we can persuade the individuals by inserting pauses through the day to absorb as much of the environment as possible. It can't be a mandatory change. The intervention in the site intended needs to act as if it was not meant to persuade because when not defining what it can or can't be, it will broadcast itself without the concentrated effort.
