Description

The projects analyzed below define different ways of approaching a very broad subject, culture, an umbrella that covers infinite ways to design a space.

In this case, three themes seem to calibrate the architectural approaches: In the first, the buildings are born through focused work on the building’s roof, an element that can collect flows and functions within a well-defined geometric margin. In this margin a marked difference emerges between the served and the serving spaces, unified thanks to the coverage. The second approach entails an addition of volumes that interact with each other, focusing on the areas of convergence/divergence as places of strong spatial suggestion. The third approach is in some ways antithetical to the second: Instead of adding, one removes. These projects focus on the void created by the excavation of the large main volumes, thus highlighting the fluidity of the spaces and the plasticity of the materials.

The works of Giotto and Eero Saarineen, a post-production work on YouTube, the work of Konstantin Melnikov, and the projects of Jonathan Safran Foer and Sou Fujimoto accompany us on this journey.
