THE EVENT OF VOID (Francesco Sebregondi)
The Heygate estate, as a piece of architecture, is dead; only left is its empty corpse, a delimited void. What is going on in this void? What is at stakes in its production and maintenance? What is its relation to the teeming city surrounding it? What is the subversive potential of that void? And since the appearance of a temporary void tends to be a constant within the pattern of urban regenerations, could we start thinking these voids together: as places from which to question, perhaps reinvent, the inherited axioms of the practice of architecture?
