FORMS OF IMMEDIACY
is commonly seen as an interface between the world and the human being. A sort

so intimately ingrained in our everyday life that it is an extension of
Or is it? What if
these assumptions were wrong and architecture is not a buffer but a straitjacket,
not comforting our senses but dulling them? A limitation that hampers our
understanding of reality? What if architecture doesn’t help us see but impedes
us to see?
responses to this condition of being a mediator have been complicated at best,

choices, and they have inevitably derived towards fallacies -conceptual
crutches to uphold a cultural fabrication, bringing us further apart from
Immediacy explores the possibility of an architecture born directly from its
conditions, technical or topological to out it briefly, generating emotion
without the layering of convoluted arguments, using EMBA’s work in the last ten
years as a paradigm.
