Project Title: QUARANTENA
Designer: Robert Scott Gilson
Project Description: Quarantine
Human ambition has surpassed the carrying capacity of the Earth. Quarantena facilitates the divorce of man from nature by exploiting the technological gap that divides the human from the natural. Q is a system for the isolation of environmental deviance. Q is a detainment network housing 1500+ detainees that cohabitate in 300 pods. Q floats within the uncertain atmosphere and above a mechanized earth.
Owens Valley – Owens Valley is an artificially enforced wilderness within a 14,000 ft. envelope. Surrounded by the western Sierra Mountain range and the eastern Inyo Mountain range, the valley is the deepest in the United States. To protect the Owens River’s diverted resources on their journey to Los Angeles, National Parks and Wildlife reserves insulate the physical and bureaucratic infrastructure that has literally sucked the valley dry.
Anti-Air – Air or the invisible atmosphere that surrounds us can be activated as a kind of “anti-air.” Twenty four slaughterhouse workers have reported symptoms of extreme numbness and paralysis. Researchers find that brain mist, a microscopic industrial byproduct, can impair human motor functions when inhaled. The atmosphere was first understood to be a weapon at the 1915 battle of Ypres. German troops deployed chlorine gas to poison the environment of their Canadian opponents. Instead of harming human flesh the environment which sustains life was targeted. For German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk the rise of environmental warfare marks a radical departure for the modern mind. “Ventilation is the profound secret of existence.”

Designed in 2001 as a home and studio by the Swiss-born architect Hans Klaentschi and his wife, Paula Klaentschi.
The architecture maximises light, open spaces and echoes the shape of local barns. “As a generic type the barn is a very beautiful thing,” Klaentschi has said (quoted in Barns by Dominic Bradbury). “The desire to live in these things is partly to do with the fact that they are not like houses… They have a promise of scale and space far beyond an idiotic terraced house.”
