Bond House

This rare project is located in a hidden place (presumably West England). It shows a simple composition between a platform or plate and a big stone; in that delicate balance the stone acts as a sort of counterweight, while the house is "projected" into the air. Pouchulu imagined this house walking through huge stones while in holidays in the south of Brazil. The fascinating, simple sense of movement (announced by Borromini and Bernini and later developed by futurist architects) is one of the elements that Modern Architecture has lost. Then there is a rare sense of anti-gravity, partially reached because of the plates, but mainly because of a rare idea of being trapped by an object that seems to move.    EN   ES
