Abstract

In design culture, the original and ever-renewed col- lision of physis-téchne has often found solution in the opposite extremes of total splitting or complete con-fu- sion, that is, strategies that move and articulate from rigid hypostatizations with a low tenor of historicity. Among the images of Time that classical culture has de- livered to us there is one in which it appears in the guise of a winged-footed youth with a prominent curl of hair on his forehead: it is kairos-occasio, the propitious instant laden with past and future, whose wisp must be grasped on pain of uncompensable loss: it is what comes closest to project writing when, no longer directed to the foun- dation-delimitation of stable and accomplished identi- ties, it becomes a sensitive tool for the activation of found “fecundities”: a thinking-acting in situation, where the agudezas of the architect resides in grasping the possible necessary in the shifting web of geographies, memories, customs, programs.
