KOVACS, Andrew. Proposal for collective living II (Homage to Sir John Soane). ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2017, n.97, pp.120-129. ISSN 0717-6996.

Starting with John Soane’s house - a collection of objects that completely transforms the space of the house - this proposal reconceptualizes the value of accumulation. Turning the interior into an exterior and replacing Soane’s museum-valued objects with cheap artifacts purchased in stores, the collection is transformed into an assembly where the whole worths more than the sum of its parts.
