AFFINITA' ELETTIVE

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.

Peter Zumthor | Shelter for Roman Archeological Site, Chur, Switzerland

Going to Chur i felt like going to a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Architects jumping out from nowhere, all coming and going zumthoring around. Well, i plunged in this (main)stream and, actually, it was not bad at all: all those alluring buildings were up and down splendrous mountains, and all we wanted was MORE. And it doesn’t matter if you already saw them once or twice, they still attract you as the first time. Peter deserves his own personal religion, for sure!

Le Corbusier | Villa Le Lac, Vevey, 1923-24

This guy… he made the design and then found the perfect spot. Would you say it was for chance?

Made In | Villa Chardonne, Lac Leman, Geneva, Swiss

Floating vierendeel house on the lake of Geneva. In order to keep the facades as transparent as possible all the storage spaces and services are incorporated as division walls, creating a thick spine that serves all the rooms.
