Intra-Uterine architecture is the dwelling of the animal. It addresses the primordial feelings of human comfort, soft and tactile surfaces conforming to the body, symbolizing pre-natal comfort
The term intra-uterine architecture was developed by Tristin Tzara as a criticism of modern architecture. Tzara argued that no matter how 'hygienic' and stripped of ornament these modern homes try to be, there is no chance for living because they are the complete negation of the image of dwelling. 1.
With the Enlightenment, humans become further separated from animals because of biological and historical definitions. Our self-consciousness and ability to organize information sets us apart from animals.
Intra-Uterine architecture aims to re associate dwelling with maternal or sheltering images such as the cave, the grotto, or the tent as an attempt to exemplify a place of true comfort.
