The research was based on the concept "Devir Minor", enunciated through the literature of Kafka by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. The concept refers to the potential of transformation and of opening spaces within a context dominated by subordination to a larger or dominant language. Under the distortive point of view of the dominant as a critical position, Devir Minor delves into the supposedly unitary and cohesive context of Latin America.
Devir Menor explores projects that are sensitive to the specificity of contextual conditions, an that often use tactics which diverge from the traditional methodology of architecture. These projects make a social and economic operative critique, as they are committed with the transformation and revitalization of their context.
Devir Menor Research is based on a collaborative methodology, and it is brought to reality by the publication of a book and an exhibition.
