When I was a child I wanted to be an architect and now that I'm an architect I would like sometimes go back to my childhood. Our mind is capable of collecting, record and store millions of images. One thing that always interests me is the association that we can do between these images. The information we collect with the experience increase knowledge but sometimes appear to inhibit fantasy and limit the freedom of imagination. In reality I think that the experience is able to enhance the capacity of imagination and create visual relationships and affinities. As in an architectural “Pareidolia” I enjoyed looking and recognize the profile of animals in architectural forms: it is an exercise of creativity and imagination simple and effective that develop an "elastic thought ": thought thinks and imagination sees. As in "The Little Prince" see beyond the design of a hat and discover the outline of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant. Our gaze is not able to grasp the unseen and our reason mechanically draw conclusions and emits its rigorous judgments based solely on the evidence of the appearance. I tried not to send a rational information to the brain to recognizes things through knowledge but leave my mind free to search for an instinctive association. Do not see a building and interpret it as such but see the elephant that encloses it. Archizoo is a series of illustrations where I play with seriousness with volumes and shapes. Famous works of architecture that build up a zoo where animals are made and composed by architecture.
