          The project critically looks at the three projection planes that geometrically define the space in visual representation. Art, Architecture and Design have used this volume as a technical lexicon to visualize, project and communicate their ortographic ideas to the world. After the 1st and 2nd Industrial Revolution, this language has become a standard and and emblematic source of codification for the industrial market, as it allows artifacts - be it buildings, printings or tools - to be serially produced in massive quantities at global scale.

          By transforming these standard projection planes from ‘Horizontal, Frontal, Profile’ to ‘Pragmatic / Utopian / Emotional’ — thus creating a new metaphorical narrative for this aseptic, intangible place — the ortographic space now becomes HERETICAL.

          The HERETICAL SPACE is a volume of freedom. A place for designers to be born again, far from the academy, far from the industry, far from the market. Inside of the heretical space, it is indeed possible to let go of our sins as designers and purify, in order to evolve into artists who are not afraid to express and manifest their utopian ideologies and deepest emotions. It is, as far as we can guess, a maiden playground for experimentation and dreams in contrast with the pragmatic apocalypse that we are witnessing around us everyday.
