U.N (Inverse) is a project that looks into mechanisms of historical complexity parting from tracks of fragmentation and linking concerns of interpretation, narration and fiction that have surrounded the construction of the United Nations, specifically the Human Rights architectural complex of its New York Headquarters.

The constant changes of reference models have brought me to a crossroads between the current idealism and symbolism, architecture and cinema, which all share main character role in collapse period. In terms of architecture, the decongestion and suspension suggested by Le Corbusier is confronted to the ideological vacuum of Wallace—the architect in vogue at the time of the UN birth. The backdrop of the cinema in the middle of the Cold War era is related to the way in which the UN is now surrounded by Hollywood stars in order to promote itself abroad. Peter Pan’s Tinkerbell is the new ambassadress of the United Nations.

This project was presented at Museo Artium and Centro la Panera
