Momentum III: Limited Frameworks
Multiple Authors

The meaning and influence that concepts such as limit, border and division have over our ways of life, when addressing spatial and territorial management structures, is nowadays in the spotlight due to the growing migration and exclusion dynamics that exist in our planet. In this context, limits can be understood as lines that just detach ourselves from the different, trying to stablish a limited framework that pretends to save the economic, cultural and social conditions of those who inhabit them. However, inside these limits, those urban developments that organize the interiority are far from being egalitarian and inclusive because the mechanisms that rule them are based on management and speculation that hardly leave room for alternative ways of acting. As Pier Vitorio Aureli stated: “There is no way back from urbanism”, but maybe we still have time to react from a new kind of interior limit, stablishing a difference between urbanism and architecture that allow ourselves to suggest and propose other ways of interacting with the city as well as alternative dialogues and interactions within the generic in order to transform it and make it evolve. These interiorities could be explored from different approaches, political or social ones, pushed by spatial and programmatic designs or by spontaneous and domestic modes of occupation that sometimes, even without noticing, are producing extraordinary case studies out of completely generic situations. Momentum III, Limited Frameworks aims to look for narratives that explore the meaning and implications of the concept of limit, so we can go further in its understanding and transform our cities in a better space to live in.


Bio We live in a global world where, due to hyper connectivity, information is stored without any filter in the global network. But, is there any possibility of going beyond the concept of image as simple visual information? Momentum is an editorial platform that aims to revisit the role of images in the Age of Overinformation. It is done by discussing and representing different architectural and urban related topics through personal references and short articles, resulting in a collection of postcards that give form to the magazine. Momentum editorial team: Alejandro Carrasco, Ángela Molina, Eduardo Cilleruelo and Laura Puchades.
