We think that architecture should be one continuous experience, from town to architecture and from architecture to structure…
When we encounter a piece of architecture, the experience begins before we enter the space.
I’m looking for architectures which incorporate a sort of animated geometry and a tenuous relationship between void and surface outlined by color contrasts, so that the ingredients can bee seen in a moving way, in a dynamic and evocative energy. Dealing with lines, the whole perception of shapes becomes a geometrical and sculptural progression from line to plane, from plane to volume and from volume to an other dimension lying beneath appearances, taken by the seamless surface of the photograph eye. A context where the architectures become a way to explore the space, to make it more emotional and where the narrative force of the images interweaves with the mood of memory, creating a visual synthesis that appeals to our senses, to our sense of place. Minimal geometry, symmetry, forms and colors are the essence of the project and they merge trying to decontextualize the buildings from the space around in a mise-en-scène made of examples of infinite variations.
