Ornaments of Power

© Traumnovelle

Throughout time, architecture has been used as a tool to express power. There are manifestations of dominance and political significance behind spatial configurations, buildings and artefacts. Traumnovelle propose the analysis of Caixa Geral de Depósitos’ headquarters as a case study of the use of ornament in an institutional context. Through architectural depictions, the workshop explores political meanings in constructed elements. The outcome is a grammar of ornaments of power and domination.
