Chapter 3 <br> The Timeless Way of Building

The third chapter, The Timeless Way of Building, is based on the homonymous book (1979) and social housing complex designed by the Viennese architect Christopher Alexander, in 1976, in Mexicali, B.C. (coincidentally, the former residence of one of the artists invited to develop a commission for The Sedimentary Effect), as well as Donald Judd's travels between 1968 and 1971 through Baja California in search of a place to build a house. Both projects speak to the notion of home as a place that goes beyond dwelling.
