“Main basse” (adroitement) sur la ville

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] One of the goals of the architectural research involves understanding the processes through which the project built new identities for the contemporary city expressing a complete change in physical space. This is to restore consistency renewed places of accumulation that have lost the meaning and extent or to former places, overwhelmed by the incessant and heterogeneous stratifications. Whenever we look at Agrigento with an authentic look, finally interested in radical interpretation of its form and the many reasons for its development, I think we identified for this city perspective of potential modernity. It consists mainly of the recovery of native urbanization principles and the search for a new balance between history and contemporaneity. It is for this reason that I always thought it was appropriate to do "hands on the city", to achieve a more genuine relationship with its physical structure, promoting membership that can still produce the harmony habitat. Attend this great heritage, the man suffocated and misunderstood, wants to say wake up all the hidden beauty.
