In progress → Shrine square → As the territory got parcelled into houses-sheds-plots connected by busy road infrastructures, the relationship between the sanctuary and the context has weakened. A rigorous essential geometry contrasts this geography and generates the project elements. The intervention is therefore a lever for reorganising and reinforcing the found assets. The agricultural field is redrawn from the surface, a hard monochrome plane partitioned by orthogo-nal traces on the ground, similar to the straight lines of a Cartesian diagram. The intersections be-tween the straight lines locate vertical elements, conceived as visual signals perceivable from the car space. Towards the street, a forest of tubes punctuates the landscape during daylight and it il-luminates it at night. Towards the centre of the surface, they decrease and are alternated with the rows of black poplar trees that shade the garden. The straight lines also define sectors that frame complex objects, acting as degrees of freedom of the plane: seats, play and sport facilities, tempo-rary configurations of stages, stands, tables and other heterogeneous appearances. The edge bor-dering the countryside terminates with a long wall, sort of a vertical fold of the surface. The narrative of the “excellence”, made of icons that are often deprived of meaning and commer-cialised, is flanked by a sensitive journey through the Veneto province. This new narrative records stories and deeds that nourish other images, while looking for new forms of dialogue with the territo-ry, capable of reactivating relations and alternative micro-centralities.

→ In progress → Le Bernarde → The ancient barn is the subject of a dimensional and photographic survey. On the inside, the eye is drawn to the provisional elements that limit the structural failures. The design concept moves from here. The new structure is a concrete core that contains the staircase and the installations, and on which the floors supported by perimeter steel pillars are anchored. At the intersections with the existing timber structure the two systems, although substantially interdependent, collide and clash. The tension extends to the conflict between spaces, reconstruction of an internal landscape bent by a non-linear conception of time.
→ In progress → House on Pedestal → Clinicaurbana is appointed to design a detached house in Treviso. A precarious edifice sits on the site: the restoration intervention all but match the cost of a new building. The planning regulations dictate that the new architecture retraces the footprint of the previous house. At the ground floor, the porous basement acts like a pedestal. The white and smooth smaller volume sits on top of it, covered by an aluminium pitched roof. This distinction marks an inversion and a future scenery. The first floor hosts the living area: the authorised volume reduction allows to save on construction costs and to design a vast terrace for magnifying the view on the nearby river. The access system and the vertical connections allow for the two levels to become independent, foreseeing a future division into two separate dwellings.
