The urban void as an intimate dimension and slow biological rhythm against the condition of acceleration that pervades the metropoli. The project speculates on the concept of emptiness as permeating definition of the postmodern society and the prospect of its exploitation not for capitalistic or social-oriented purposes, but for an emotional- driven experimentation apt to define the role of the urban gap as a self-generative space made of environmental matter able to stimulate and respond to the emotional level of its users, preserving at the same time the proportional detachment of the urban void within the city and its functional absence.

The pulsative rhythm is data flow that generates space through local materials such as sand, bacteria and water. Bacteria fueled with urine collected from the users merge grains of sand together in shaping a formal catalogue that, emerging from the ground and the concrete ruins, evolves and responds within the users experiences. Water is pumped and spread in form of liquid or gas in order to affect the pulse coherence. The site is a constantly-mutating landscape made of dunes, oasis, enclosed sandstone shells and atmospheres.
