This narrative project generated by a deep misunderstanding. The main mistake was the innatural act of psychoanalyzing the territories of a Tropical Metropolis; trying to understand, at any cost, the magnetism that they exercise on me; the digging in order to reveal the most hidden perversions and wildest ambitions. Investigating the difficult relationship between a Russian mother and a French father, was sometimes too thoughtful and excessively authoritarian at the same time.

I inevitably ended up, crushed, in an endless stream of consciousness, marked by betrayals, disappointments, promiscuous loves, blunders, conflicts, paradoxes and sad reatreat.

The obsessive and swirling investigation of this book aims to reconstruct the huge amount of thinking about architecture, landscape and urban forms that have come and gone, overlapped and clashed in a gesture of eternal return on the landscape of the tropical metropolis.

The common thread of these multiple stories are the different time levels, each of them dragging you in personal bestiary of men, utopias, projects, styles and theories. Each of these categories has been dissected and reassembled with the specific intent to snatch the essence of this process: wasting time in observing the implications on the city.

When you have the opportunity to seize an urban mass in the moment of its genesis, it becomes an obsession. The obsession of the explosives territories.

The result is a Wunderkammer melodrama in three acts, where the compulsive collection of materials about the huge desire of urbanity, comes together to show its complex and layered variety.
