CHUK, Bruno. Practices of Spatial Appropriation and Narrativity. Tóp. Sem [online]. 2017, n.37, pp.187-213. ISSN 2594-0619.

The convergent link, although not coincident nor equally, between social practices of spatial appropriation and architectural discourse, morphoplastic support of such practice, is understood and explained from a topological key: the two modes of equivalence between topological groups that expose the combinatorial topology, homeomorphisms / homotopy. This pair replicates its spatiotemporal forms of rubber in the temporality immanent to the practice (sites / rituals) in the immanent temporality of the architectural rhythm of its syntax, in the plane of the discursive manifestation (gestalt typical of simultaneity / gestalt rhythmic succession), and in the time of the story narrated by the architectural text (environmental figures of descriptive function / modal figures and objects of desire of the narrative process). Such a link, which happens only in this semiosis, allows access to the particular conditions presented by the morphoplastic speech in terms of the modal semantics of their rhythms and tensile modulations, a topic addressed in Semiotics of the Passions, and in turn the central theme for Architectural Morphology and Project Theory.

Keywords : rhythm; modulation; ritual.
