"Islands" explores the possibility of architectural islands by dividing them into two categories, the oceanic and the continental. Oceanic islands are the radical ones, truly isolated not only in space, but also in time. Continental islands, in contrast, are the product of the erosion of a continent and are linked to something that exists nearby or that existed sometime in the past.
