Not Economically Viable

Project description

Poland is littered with unfinished houses. Each of these houses stands for a tragedy but also an aesthetic experience. They stand for tragedies, because one can imagine the different reasons that have led to the abandonment of the house: death, loss of a job, loan refusal, all stories making the current owners «economically not viable», according to banking terminology. But they are also aesthetic experiences, because this architecture, most of the time lacking originality and ugly, mutilated by its empty windows, is in a way sublimed by the very exterior signs telling about these personal tragedies.
