Project selected for the exhibition “A planet for the Research” created by Donato Losa and Attilio Pizzigoni, 22 architects in support of Foundation A.R.M.R. Aid for Research on Rare Diseases.
The approach is extremely impudent, brave.
The glass sphere is not used as suggested by the competition to define an imagined space but as a mold in wich shaping concrete (concrete a material chosen for it’s nature so opposite to the fragility of its container).
The breaking of the two materials is the action that frees the space from its storage containers.
The imagined future desecrates the long-established “residential housing” to establish new relations of self-sufficiency and sharing spaces. Nowadays new virtual networks allow us to get away from megacities and propose a renewed relationship between man and habitats.
A recovery of ancient pleasures physical / textural, a feeling that define new living spaces.
