Abstract

Machines for Living. Flamenco and Architecture in the Occupation and Vacating of Spaces takes its title from a comment made by Federico GarcíaLorca to Manuel de Falla, recorded in Arquitectura del cante jondo (circa 1932), when the two of them were walking down a street in Granada and suddenly heard an old cante song, a voice and a guitar playing, issuing from within a house. As they peered in through the window, they saw “a white, aseptic room without a single picture, just like a machine for living in by the architect Corbusier”.
