Small house for a Kolonihaven | Source: EMBT

‘We are our memory,

are this fantastic museum of inconstant forms,

this heap of torn mirrors.’

JL Borges

Probably living is any more than an eternal construction than recollections. We pledge in anticipating the melancholy that us will bring the memory, projecting our past future.

Probably because of it, when Enric Miralles did his small Kolonihavehus, a little house of not more than 6 m2, one stone in miniature in a landscape bonsai, it decided that it had to be a calendar. This way, the passage of time would remain registered, that definitively, it is what we are. Of what we are made.

Probably, he placed the house close to a cherry-tree in order that they were his biorritmos those who were announcing that the time, to his step, was constructing his lives and architectures. An almanac us remembers that the carnations will be opened the cold days of December and we will enjoy the nenuphars the mornings of June. To construct an environment, almost as an hourglass, as an instrument of measure of the time.

Probably also, the fleeting growth of his daughter Caterina was hypnotizing him so much, that wanted that the world was growing with her, and this way, also his house. As a garment that embraces the movements of the small inquilina, which when it escapes of his piccolo mondo and there interrupts the chat of his parents about a table, she feels furthermore small. Much more. And also he, when he is present as guest of exception at the religious ritual that is the game for a child, feels foreign, of another time.

Probably this small Kolonihaven is not anything any more than the way in which Enric Miralles saw to spend the life. A constant to look from left side to right, without glasses.

Probably, since it is in the habit of happening whenever I approach Enric Miralles, everything alone previous is the tremendous one probably.
