NDSM is at the forefront of this phenomenon. its temporary state of NDSM reflect such change; exposing the weak connections between people, functions, objects and time. "architecture without Permanence" aims to reconnect existing and emerging people, functions, space and time; providing adaptability, flexibility and real time feedback system.
"architecture without Permanence" is an exploration upon a new intervention for the treatment of contextual considerations. taking up the challenge of adapting to the changes of context; of its environment; of its functionality and of its people. can architecture really survive without any permanence?
