In qualsiasi modo si immagina noi stessi sempre ci immaginiamo veggenti. Credo che l'uomo sogni unicamente per non cessare di vedere. verra' forse un tempo in cui la luce interiore uscira' da noi, in modo che non avremo piu' bisogno dell'altra.

So, if you were wondering with me which kind of finish these guys applied on the concrete to look this marbleish, here is the simple answer: the walls were stripped back revealing loads of layers of plaster and wallpapers, and that’s what you get when you finally expose the concrete. A mixture of putty and concrete itself.

Are those photos deceiving or is it really this appealing?

House within a House | Hiromi Fujii | Socks Studio

In his built project for the Todoroki residence (1976), the radical use of the grid produces an evolution of the traditional Japanese interior planning, where spaces were combined in layers. Every element which composes a conventional house is reinvented and relocated. The façades are just the exterior container of the multiple sequences of spaces nesting one within another. The openings are multilayered: they don’t just connect the interiors with the exteriors, but penetrate right into the core of the building. Their location and dimension, as well as for every interior wall, always refer to the three-dimensional main grid and its sub-divisions.

Sanaa | New Bocconi university campus, Milan, Italy
There’s no doubt Sanaa started conceiving a new way to approach (educational) buildings long ago. And here we are, after all we’ve seen, still astonished and moved by this design. In a 17500 squared meters park those 50% opaque 50% transparent buildings are just made to be there. Asap.

Herzog & De Meuron | Arena do Morro, Mae Luiza, Natal, Brazil

From H&DM description:

"… Under the roof, the ground forms a landscape made of local terrazzo that follows the existing topography. The seating tiers trace the contour lines of the open field, and the multipurpose room, the dance studios, and support spaces are nestled in between. An undulating independent wall defines the interior perimeter, following the outline of the seating steps around the sports field and the circular shape of the freestanding and more private rooms. The circular volumes underline the communal character of these spaces and the activities within."

Danteum | Giuseppe Terragni, Pietro Lingeri

How to translate Dante’s poetry into architecture?

That was the question that brought this project to life: reproduce with fine materials and architecture’s laws the intrinsic significance of the Divina Commedia.

Just 1/3 of the project has a function as exhibition, the rest has just a reason
