“Order is not image, but a constructive order based on the principle of architecture as a system, which is able to hold together, in balance, in medias res, the reasons of the city and those of the architectural object. To do this, the language becomes terse, generic, eschewing that neurosis of invention at all costs that – if we look closely – is the limit of contemporary modernism.”
Vincenzo Corvino & Giovanni Multari
Box Set #21 presents Italian photographer Mario Ferrara’s photo essay on the architecture by Neapolitan firm Corvino + Multari. Close friends, the authors participate in the narration of the context where the five projects are located. Rural and urban landscapes of Campania region is the natural palimpsest of Corvino + Multari’s works. Mario Ferrara’s eyes capture the dialogue between architecture and environment evoking intangible tensions of each locus. In the same way, architects insist on an architectural approach rooted in the daily experimentation of matter and space transform ordinary gestures into masterly designs.
