"In this current scenario, an exceptional situation without precedent, unity and social cohesion are increasingly necessary to successfully overcome social fractures and political divisions. We must, therefore, be open to multiple possibilities of collaboration, communication and grouping of different sectors in all political, social, economic, health, environmental, etc. Alison and Peter Smithson, with the design proposal and subsequent architectural embodiment of Golden Lane Estate, raised the sense of "Unity" from the concept of Cluster, which was the main aid to social cohesion through ease of communication. Following an excerpt from the initial sketch of Golden Lane structure and dividing it into 4 different and independent blocks, I present the piece NEVER BUILT, which explores the concept of “unity” and proposes the idea of a community through a temporal choreography of objects."
