SALAD / Carlos A. González Alemán / Spain
TODAY, I WANT TO EAT A SALAD ( TUNA )
Taste and Feeling
The concept of smell, color, taste — this feelings akin the feeling of optic nerves. Lights, dessert and feelings. We did not want something so obvious but some buildings were calling us.

Perhaps, these projects were or had root these elements of nature. We’ll never know but we can always invent your origin. We will not be on the right track.
There is no way Gourmanization of architecture as a salad. A salad is fresh, full of taste, full of feeling, full of textures, full of form … and the easier is in relating it to architecture.
So the next time you eat a salad think you’re eating the world’s architecture. Full of taste and feeling.
We do not want the best lighting, the best textures or just want a good excuse to have fun and see that architecture can be edible. And rather we see how the forms of architecture always arise everyday thing but unusual.
