He has also worked for several architectural studies in Catalunya and Andorra. Marc is currently doing personal projects which aim to focus on urban landscapes as his primary subject. He has have a keen interest in the ways our landscapes define and produce us as humans. Today we feature his series, At Minimum.
At minimum wants to explore and analyze the aesthetic of the industrial suburbs located around our cities. Because these contemporary landscapes built by our society can be a revelatory proof of its moral courage. In the aesthetic of these desolated environments we can watch the ferocious control, the power and the influence that the modern society applies on its closest surroundings, in general, and on the human being, in particular. This situation turns into spaces that float in a one existentialist lethargy. They are defined by a monotonous aesthetic with childish tones, homogenize textures, inorganic nature and unmoving geometry. And, one of the most important things, it is the fact of representing a one-sided break with natural space and its rules. Here, the environment is manipulated and deformed by the way the human being wants and being a self- caricatured. We can say that its identity becomes minimum, project itself like a poor reflex of the cities that they have seen it growing.
