In the book The Concise Townscape, Gordon Cullen states that “one building standing alone in the countryside is experienced as a work of architecture, but bring half a dozen buildings together and an art other than architecture is made possible. Several things begin to happen in the group which would be impossible for the isolated building. We may walk through and past buildings, and as a corner is turned, an unsuspected building is suddenly revealed.”
In the Serial Vision Home, a big, wide hallway serves as the leading spine of the space. The house’s walls, which are understood as an integral structure, create a feeling of transition while passing them by, giving each room a distinct character and atmosphere. In this sense, the body of walls of this Barcelona home becomes a metaphor for Cullen’s group of buildings.
