What is the life expectation of an architecture today? Living conditions and routines have changed so rapidly in the past decade that any presumptions about our future way of living is nothing more than pretentious. Every so often we stumble upon the typologies that leave us free to adapt; to make our environment designate our life in new ways over and over again. With the traditional typology of the barn, we find a building type that acts economically smart for a maximum multitude of agricultural uses. It is this non deterministic pragmatism that make the typology sustainable and exemplaric for a contemporary attitude towards culture that rejects
routine and embraces change.
