flexible docking

soy fantástico porque estoy en Valparaíso, Chile otra vez.

the entire city of Valparaiso resonates as a sound box.
flexibility thrives and survives in the earth shaking nature of Valparaiso.
flexibility of architecture, flexibility of movement, flexibility of negotiation.

moving from land to ocean, on a recent trip out into the harbor, the local dock served as an excellent example of flexibility because it materialized simultaneously in the air as in the sea.

two wonderful architects come to mind who intentionally materialize flexibility in their projects; Michael Bier, of Valparaiso, Chile and Lancelot Coar, of University of Manitoba, Canada.

the enticing, theatrical and un-expecting world of flexibility is a world worth living.
