This collection of drawings (2014 – 2017) presents some of our last mistakes. A mistake, in itself, is a departure from what is commonly considered a rule or a habit. It means a detachment that disorients creating a place in which questions and possibilities multiply endlessly. An uncertain margin that often gives the opportunity to open new horizons and the freedom to change trajectory. We don’t know how long this anthology of slips and faults can adequately describe the personal research path in the field of the project and the representation of architecture. In any case, at least two facts are true.
This album contains only the original drawings of the selected projects. They are here reproduced in the way they have been elaborated in the beginning, without any of the changes that the will of the clients or the demands of the construction after required. The selected drawings are the result of contaminations and collaborations established in these years with architects, landscape architects, students and illustrators. From a graphical point of view, this makes them very heterogeneous.
First, the collection shows up as a clearly-not-complete frame of the contingency, even a sort of illogical call for error and imperfection. But this album of drawings, in truth, would aim to outline a practice: that is not particularly interested in defining a recognizable or immutable code of expression and telling, but instead it is very passionate in shaping a process as much as possible adaptive, formative and voluntary.
