LOOKING BACK # MODULAR (1968) :: by Kristian Gullichsen and Juhani Pallasmaa (helsinki, Finland)

The moduli system project by Kristian Gullichsen and Juhani Pallasmaa arises in Finland in the late sixties to solve the rental housing. Moduli prefabrication system raises a number of possible combinations relying on a structural grid and the possible combinations of panels of standard dimensions.

Between 1969 and 1973, sixty residential units were built using the Moduli system. The first was a summer home for Kristian Gullichsen outside Helsinki. Although the system allowed construction of a house in two days, it never became profitable and the project was abandoned.

“Today’s architecture is not for the people (…) This architecture is booth “nihilista” and “narcisista”, J.P. explains ::

La arquitectura actual tiende a ser retiniana, se dirige al ojo. Es narcisista porque enfatiza al arquitecto, al individuo. Y es nihilista porque no refuerza las estructuras culturales, las aniquila. Hoy los mismos arquitectos construyen por todo el mundo y los mismos edificios están en todas partes. Así es difícil que la arquitectura pueda reforzar ninguna cultura.”
