Aurelio Galfetti. Costruire lo spazio / The Construction of Space

The three essays brought together here offer a specific reading of different phases of Galfetti’s achievement. Starting from a single project, they demonstrate how the idea of a territorial architecture has always linked the project in his work (on every scale) to the place, the landscape and the territory.

Texts by: Franz Graf, Nicola Navone, Laurent Stalder.

Quarantotto pagine: Jan De Vylder

«One moment is not like another. To wait for the right moment. Or to see the right moment. First this one. Patience. And then the next. Ready to see it. This moment, that is what it is about. This moment, which could be a definition. One of the definitions. Of architecture. On architecture. The moment when things that are seemingly unrelated suddenly and immediately seem to really relate to each other» (Jan De Vylder).
