scob architecture and landscape

presentation

scobdocs is a cultural, as well as a research project on landscape. Through the narrations or the filming of a series of short documentaries, we try to understand the link between places we encounter and the people who experience them or, like us, walk through them. In this particular spot is where we rest, hoping to capture the landscape that appears in front of us.

 

scobdocs believes, as Goethe formulated about 200 years ago, that the most specific and extended benefit for mankind is only the result of great and selfless efforts that do not demand a reward but, in return, do not deliver a useful outcome for humanity, neither at the end of a year, nor a decade or century.

Landskating is a short documentary film produced by Sergi Carulla and Oscar Blasco and directed by Kike Barberà.

 

An old skating area by the beach, a forgotten garden buried under bridges and the reconstruction of a skate park in a working-class neighborhood, define the scene of the documentary "Landskating". A parallel narration of the building process of three new public spaces in Barcelona explains how certain marginal areas of the city have been naturally integrated in the urban network, taking into account the landscape, its memories, its people, its everyday life...

The Elastic Properties of Landscape is a collection of short stories written by Oscar Blasco. Landscape is present in each and every story -a landscape which is closer to innocence, madness or magic than to environmental science or pictorial nature.

The book describes the transformation of spots into landscapes through our own eyes. In the first section, "Notes From Nature", landscapes appear between experience and remembrance. In the second section, "Daydreams", reality transforms itself, encouraged by the whims of imagination. In the third section, "Stories", the author gives way to a cast of characters who conclude the book with ingenuity and good humour, a book in which we may be discovering a new theory about landscape.
