«The more architecture mutates, the more it confronts its immutable core. Yet S, M, L, XL is a search for ‘another’ architecture, knowing that architecture is like a lead ball chained to a prisoner’s leg: to escape, he has to get rid of its weight, but all he can do is scrape slivers off with a teaspoon»

TSPOON is a small tool that produces processes. Whatever the scale of intervention is, the aim of TSPOON’s experimentation is to create ecosystems resulting from the interaction between general strategies and the minute and multiple nature of everyday life. The project is an open grid of possibilities capable of absorbing and catalyzing mutations, transformations and re-appropriations in a continuous dialectic process between space and inhabitants.
TSPOON is Nina Artioli, Alessandra Glorialanza and Eliana Saracino.
