My latest collaboration with Martina Merlini.
Martina and I have been invited to an event that took place in my town Rimini, Italy at the beginning of July. The two curators transformed Villa Manzi, a dismissed hotel in front of the beach, in a 3-stories container of art, photography and music.
We took over a room and filled it with a blend of our (so) different styles, turning an old and modest space with a view on the seaside to -let’s call it- a mess in three dimensions to surround the viewer.
It’s been super fun and challenging to work with Martina, especially trying to achieve a consistent harmony between her informal work and my figurative pieces.

"‘Architects have to stop thinking in terms of buildings only. Built and physical architecture, freed from the technological limitations of the past, will more intensely work with spatial qualities as well as the psychological ones. The process of erection will get a new meaning, spaces will more consciously have haptic, optic and acoustic properties. A true architecture of our time will have to redefine itself and to expand its means. Many areas outside traditional building will enter the realm of architecture, as architecture and “architects” will have to enter new fields. All are architects. Everything is architecture.’"

Architect, theorist, artist, designer, and writer Hans Hollein has passed away at age 80. The 1985 recipient of the Pritzker prize, Hollein was a fairly polarizing figure in architectural discourse, putting forth some of the more challenging and fascinating ideas on architecture, while producing some of the more disputed structures in recent architectural history.

16-year-old dresses as every culture and counterculture of the last 100 years

Flapper. Beatnick. Hippie. Hipster. 

In her project “Counter // Culture,” 16-year-old photographer Annalisa Hartlaub captures all the mainstream and countercultural movements that have defined the last 10 decades. The results are a stirring series of portraits that bring life to a century of women, contextualizing how the friction of mainstream and counterculture defined progression.
