THE TENNIS RE-ENACTMENT   CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

 

Last summer in the frame the presence of architecten de vylder vinck taillieu at the summer school at the Porto Academy a visit was brought to Quinta Da Conceiçao park in which Tavora interfered in many ways.

Small interventions. Large interventions. A tennis court. A monumental entrance space. Some staircases. All kind. And so beautiful.

While approaching the monumental entrance space and although the tennis court we found people playing tennis at that entrance. We were told that this was not a particular moment but often the case.

Only this observation. The act of playing tennis. Soon it became more. A trilling thought. The act of tennis became a demand on the daily meaning of life towards the eternal meaning of architecture.

Is that by Tavora designed entrance now disturbed by the act of leisure? Do the tennis players know what they are doing? Are we without respect if we dare to say that a new kind of beauty can be found in this act of eventual misprize of a masterpiece of architecture?

Simple questions about life. Profound questions about architecture. No answer is expected. Only a moment of reflection. And maybe also just accepting the beauty of the daily.

 

 

As architecten de vylder vinck taillieu is invited at the Chicago Architecture Biennale 2015 and the title of the biennale is “The state of the Art of Architecture”; the friction architecten de vylder vinck taillieu will bring to that theme is the demand of the daily regarding the ambitions architecture rather likes to stand for.

What is the meaning of the art of architecture in the perspective of daily life? Is there a possible constraint or is that constraint only seemingly?

The tennis re-enactment is the project that will give that moment of reflection a possible décor. Following that experience at Toavora’s Quinta De Conceiçao park architecten de vylder vinck taillieu set up with the students of the Porto Academy summer school a small re-enactment series of playing tennis at many other places dealing with the status of architecture. At the entrance of the Porto School Alvaro Siza designed a kind like outdoors room as Tavora designed for the park; a room specifically being a tribute to Tavora. The first re-enactment happened to be at that room.

The call is simple. Do submit accordingly the technical specifications giver further on a small contribution to the idea of the tennis re-enactment by playing a few minutes tennis at an important icon of architecture. Tape it and submit it. Take part in this worldwide celebration of
