Thoughts aloud about Body and Architecture

It's seven in the morning. Duke over three hours walking the streets of Barcelona. It seems that this walk as part of the deal. Dry in a square footprint and am thinking I can not trace the asphalt. I think the first men and how they followed the trail of footprints between neighboring nomadic tribes. I think the way the world sedentary nomadic world as the first dance of humanity.

Dances imagine architectures.

I walked, I sat, I manipulated plans, cities have created with vegetables, I made a concert nails, I made a ceiling that is wall and floor simultaneously.

Now imagine a world without chairs.
