The main concern was to prove that a horizontal matt can be as productive and robust as a vertical type. If urbanism, pushed by developers, is often the vertical extrusion of capital, then perhaps a horizontal matt can be more of an actual expression of work’s implications on the ground. In other words, the ground itself as production surface, which obviously takes us back to agriculture and architectural models where gardens and cultivation have been defining elements of space.
