“thus on the one hand, there will remain utensils… on the other, such symbolic objects as monuments or badges… objects that can easily be carried about if we should become nomads, or heavy and immovable if we decided to stay in one place forever.”

giancarlo de carlo, villagio matteotti (1968-74)

 

i realize in the previous post i suggested you click a link, but this image is too beautiful not to repost.  villagio matteotti in living color.  this is the result of participatory design – architect + community.

notes:

[title + image]     the above image and title come from a previous post when i wrote for rolu under the moniker – nic the intern.  two years seems like a long time.  the title comes from a superstudio essay (maybe even a treatise) which i can’t seem to find, but trust me, they said it.
