Leaf, Flame, Crystal
The book brings together, on the basis of an atlas of the places and contexts of the vast territory of the Venices and Italy, the projects and the architectures in progress of the Cecchetto studio, one of the most original in Italy at the moment. An original coherence in the significant relations that the architectures establish with the landscapes of reference and in the capacity to produce images of the future and experimental forms in the physical settings in which they are inserted are the key strengths of this body of work. These architectures and projects act in a-scalar forms capable of moving in a dilated spatiality such as that of the city today and our contemporary landscapes. A scale that continually addresses different questions and proposes satisfactory solutions to different issues, that does not draw limits and dissolves to create an intermediate space, a ‘between’ space in the places and realities with which it opens up a closed comparison.
