Desgined by Pierre Benoit

Almost there. Any minute now. Any moment. Just a little longer. Just a little further. Just. A little. Further. When tension is at its highest nothing happens. Standstill. Tension is a flirt with the limit, a tug-of-war between opponents. It flows and stretches, holds and guides. Tension accelerates the pulse. Sometimes strong as steel, then again tender as twine.
trans 36 will examine the topic of tension in its many facets and scales, be it in individual building parts, architectural compositions, narratives or in the relation of architecture to other disciplines.
