[IN]-Closure by ABF-lab

At the time when Seattle wonders what course to follow for a lasting transformation on public spaces, the [in]-closure project puts itself as the mainspring of the urban revival for the next five decades. Slow decision-making processes increased by fast practice changes and modern means of communication as globalized dematerialization implies that, nowadays, traditional urban planning methods are reaching the limit. You can plan an urban project; it will be obsolete even before seeing the light.

How can we thus produce such a dematerialized urbanism? A contemporary and future urbanism, flexible enough to be immediate, distortable, as well as embracing different living in- harmony modes and new constraints in the long run. At the same time, a dematerialized urbanism must be strongly characterized so that everyone can adapt to it, in this everyday life in continuous motion.
We offer to keep this natural and unique area in the heart of the city as a legacy to the following generations and an economic, social and environmental experimentation field for the next five decades. Our vision of a prototypical Seattleite public space considers also that it has to be done with respect to the history of the city and its identity, along with its inevitable transformation and transition phase.

By working on the perimeter of the space, avoiding material and energy wastes, we aim at accurately framing the area. This will constitute the starting point of our project. The result will be a space where centrism – a compulsory stage to take your history and identity in – and peaceful urban atmosphere will not rhyme with “disconnection” or “negation of a surrounding” but reverence, gathering, experience and gestation of innovative ideas.

Through extreme formal sobriety – a minimalist architectural in response to the surrounding projects – the [in]-closure develops a vast number of events and experiences at heart. The “outside-inside-outside” sequence standing as a spatial process is here to remind temporal dimension, past, present, and future.
Neither the [in]-closure claims to be a memorial nor an observatory at the present, but a social, economic and environmental incubator/laboratory for tomorrow.
