The Old Language (WORKING IN PROGRESS)  



The Venice hospital project(1965) have been regarded as the most controversial, so as to be unaccomplished, work of  the modernist architecture, Le Corbusier. In belief that an architecture model may imply a way of performativity of space (inhabitation) and staging politics and knowledges.

In that the architecture is well known to address ‘a house is a machine for living in’, his project has a great resonance with the contemporary concept of ‘digital well being’. Once the voice activated technology, like Amazon’s Alexa, has been invented to help support better outcomes for those suffering from chronic conditions like diabetes, on how our perception on such illnesses, or even wellness in itself, would be altered. 



Mr.Mayor,
...Yes, I have created skyscrapers 220 meters tall, but I have placed them where they had to be placed. Don’t kill Venice, I beg you.

- Le Corbusier 1962
