Renovation always means establishing a relationship of sorts with the past, with the pasts that are accumulated in the space of the intervention. And also with the future, with that imaginary idea of the place we would like to tend towards. But above all it means a great capacity to work with the present. To erase or to design: to eliminate, clean, repair, reconstruct, replace, incorporate, add... Successive discoveries continually require different and complementary responses. The relationships between old and new spaces are gradually brought about, often in real time, as are those between the workers who one day put up the walls and those who now remake them. The endless superimposition of time, desire, skills, materials, strategies, of individuals. On top of all, the rising trusts in a plan system necessarily open (the collage, in this case) which is able to join harmonically on a whole each piece’s history of the process.
