Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review

Abstract

The thòlos is a construction that can be taken as a beginning of architecture and that defines principles that go beyond history and archeology: it represents an archetype linked to the lithic world, coming from the East and widespread since the Greek Archaic period throughout the Mediterranean. It preserves memories of mythical eras and forms that emerge with continuity in architecture, crosses history and persists in modernity, especially in the places of worship and celebrations. The thòlos space allows us to take up some themes in the contemporary project whose results lead to an architecture that is in contrast to the visual continuity inside-outside and the absence of borders, which prefers volume to the envelope, to lightness and transparency. heaviness and opacity, which enhances the poetic role of natural light.
