Unlike the commonality of celebrating urban architecture for its small carbon footprint with tight living quarters, Le Carceri Uncanny presents architecture as a speculation on the design of buildings for the city instead of the human. The project is a psychoanalytic conversation that explores the confines of dim space. This uncanny image is a space with no clear dimensional qualities and resembles the mezzotint moods of Piranesi’s Carceri etchings.
What are the implications of minimizing allotted space? Favoring spaces over others and designing without light in mind can bring about socio-economic implications and have an impact on the human psyche.
