The horizon is the primal DATUM of all dwelling. It is the reification of the elemental link between the internal mechanism of perception and external realm of physical reality. It is what links us intimately to our surroundings. Throughout history, surroundings change, technologies change, languages change, cultural and expressive imperatives change, but what architecture must respond to now is the changing nature of the primal conditions of the medium itself; that of perceptual and psychic references.
The house of the new HORIZON responds to two specific conditions that haunt and progressively erode our perception of the physical world: Internalization and mediation. Our physical horizon is becoming obscured by a dependence on the electronic medium; Events without place, without reference, set against an electromagnetic skyline. Though we deem these conditions as negative developments we have nevertheless absorbed them into the process of our design, exaggerating their presence and thereby establishing a healthy and didactic critique.
