Architect Marc Leschelier shares one of his latest projects, linked with two quotes from the “Mouldiness Manifesto against Rationalism in Architecture" by Austrian artist Hundertwasser. Built in the middle of a forest, BUILDING / PROTOTYPE II is designed for the Château du Feÿ, in Burgundy, France, like an architectural “madness”. The project seeks an elaborate type of construction that values the primitive instinct for the balance of the masses. The approach aims to reveal a brutal, direct yet intelligible dimension of architecture by cutting back its expression to the skeleton of its construction. In the current context, this project outlines the idea that our houses are "our third skin ... Houses also cry and bleed ... Houses are sick, injured".
