The goal is to create a space of desire and life.
The charm of the new city should not be drawn from the reserves of nostalgia but from a dwelling that promises a better quality of
urbanity
Habitat Kashgar should not merely mean a return to its own roots.
It should mean a “new beginning, opposition to the history”
No “Newcomer” can appear unless he constitutes the embodiment of a possibility that the seed had taken root in the past.
The past is not a reservoir but a wellspring and, to transform it, we can’t speak any language other than the one it teaches us
Habitat Kashgar should be the meta-habitat that is dedicated to the virtue of freedom and openness.
A promise to the permanent dwellers and to the passers.
For the permanent dwellers knowing that they are not fragmental and forgotten but they belong to an entirety; they are being part of
the whole.
And to the passers who travel along the traces of this entirety, there is a promise that crossing means the ability to reach a new destination;
and also a reminder that what matters is not the destination but the crossing.
