first coined by followers of Duns Scotus to describe the discrete qualities,
properties or characteristics of a thing that make it a
particular thing. Haecceity is a person’s or object’s thisness, the individualizing difference between the concept ‘a man’ and the concept
TYPE comes from the Greek word typos which means ‘model, matrix, impression, mould, mark, figure in relief, original form’ and from the Latin word typus which means ‘figure, image, form, kind’.
In this design studio we worked on a holiday house in Mallorca. We focused on the concept of TYPE trying to deal with the idea of tradition. Not contemplating the existing as an embalmed figure. But introducing our practice as part of the tradition itself. We worked in continuity with tradition, from the comprehension of the context. Not starting from scratch, no one begins from zero. But working by manipulating, transforming and perfecting the common tradition and own memory.
