Hernan Diaz Alonso begins with a discussion of the word “void” and its importance in his work. For him, void relates to the autonomy of architecture. The architecture begins with internal logic, and site and contextual connections are secondary. He lists a set of principles that run through his work, including contamination, the grotesque, and affect/arousal. He discusses his P. S. 1 project and its relationship to cinema and narrative.
