Description:

The story of REFORMA was written regarding the inspiration of the book Invisible Cities by ,Italo Calviano.

 

Those  images show REFORMA as a case that examines the relationship between human memory, structure and context.

 

Cities and Memory \  RE FORMA

 

If  you would choose to believe me, when you come to REFORMA you reveal a city that cannot be described exactly how it looks like and on the other hand has no precedent. City which is built on top of the remains of the old city which the residents are fed up its form and its inability to change and evolve therefore they decided to produce a dynamic structural system on which they will build the new city that knows how to assemble and disassemble itself according to the needs and changes of the residents and the environment. When you visit REFORMA you revealed a new city that is not characterized by buildings but buildings that process variable and constantly evolving. Walking on the streets of REFORMA reveals that although you do not have the ability to experience the same space twice does not mean that you lose your orientation in space, it's because, every time the city changes details and parts from the previous statues are reflected in the new whether if it's remains and fragments or system perversion that telling the contents of thing.  The evolution of REFORMA is shown at the city museum, which described the changes and the shapes of REFORMA over time. However, none of the REFORMA inhabitants can predict how and when should be the shape of the city.  The form of the city is a combination of freedom given to the masses to organize themselves along with extreme situations, actions and random encounters, resources and environmental changes occurring at the same time all the time...
