What will you do with youe time?

        Ballardian two is another Ballardian, a type of architecture that would belong to the fictional literary œuvre of J.G. Ballard without ever having been described within it. It could have been set more specifically in the short story The voices of time. 
        A house offers almost no protection from the heat outside. It amplifies it, slowing down the movement of its inhabitant, maybe until he or she comes to stall. It arranges the stones inside and outside its own space, possibly aligning them with the outdoor desert landscape.
        Most of the furniture are fixed, but a chair. A desert inside and a desert outside. The end is open on the landscape as a result as some kind of imaginary burst.

        The model is presented as part of a construction protocol︎.
