Listening-to, learning-from?



not random tourists: reading our cities / our landscapes as open books
(are the existing traces project forming?)

in the consciousness that is very difficult to invent something never seen before
(knowledge – based balance between archaeology and new-in-the-old?)

between site specific and global issues, resisting when somebody is telling you that anything goes
(from chance and arbitrariness to rational clarity and intellectual order?)

better inclusive than exclusive
(“and” rather than “or”?)

we are what we’re doing: open proposals for a sustainable, site specific and responsible contemporary architecture.
(from irresponsible opinion to true responsible judgement?)

linking research, teaching and professional work
(all together: learning)

Landscape and Environment, Cultural Heritage and Museums, Art/Architecture

We beg your pardon in advance, trying to be anyway quite far from the fashionable, global, glamorous, unsustainable and bit ridiculous star system architect’s market. Coming back to our job, erecting walls, sizing up the landscape, creating spaces and provoking emotions, endorsing the silence between notes. Supporting the reasons of what once was called Composizione architettonica, learning a place, a square, a distance by drawing, testing principles of settlement, knowing how to allow relations, establish hierarchies, attribute weights, discipline masses, working with the apparently empty spaces.
