U.I.R.D.A. – Unbuilt Italian Rationalism Digital Archive: Piero Bottoni and Luigi Vietti

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


For twenty years, the architecture of Italian rationalism through the digital modelling has been investigated.Very often, the production of a model and the consequent representation of tridimensional views,in many case studies, as outcome of the research on architecture have been considered. Actually, thedigital model, intended as a critical tool, has to be conceived as a ‘starting point’ for graphic analysis ofarchitecture and not as the outcome. Indeed, it is associated to other graphics, sometimes not ‘deducted’from the model, useful for the understanding/translation of architecture. The construction of the modelis not the construction of a simple image, operation, which is often carried out for the representationof the project, but it is the hermeneutic and critical result of the drawing tending to the analysis of theform, which is the true object of ‘imitation’. This study wants to contribute to the construction of a digitalarchive on the topic of the single-family house investigated by Piero Bottoni and Luigi Vietti.
