a preview of the ongoing project that will be entirely displayed in 2019 as part of the exhibition Metafisica. Le forme del tempo.
André Corboz theorized the ‘hypercity’ in 1994. years before, Italian architects Carlo Aymonino and Aldo Rossi already imagined the future development of big cities: fragmented plots without any apparent geography. the Monte Amiata complex in Milano, Italy, built between the sixties and the seventies, is like an early portrait of our urban contemporaneity, where the past is still an echo. the complex aimed to satisfy more complicated ways of living, following a logic of programmatic disorder, anticipating the concept of hyper-city.
a dialogue with Le Corbusier inside the Esprit Nouveau Pavilion, Bologna 2017
"architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light. our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms; cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the great primary forms which light reveals to advantage; the image of these is distinct and tangible within us without ambiguity." Le Corbusier, Vers une architecture, 1923
