Rather than the meaning of exellence/perfection, IÕm interested in the accepted meaning of the word ideal defining the ‘not real’, that exists just in our minds. It’s a process slightly different from my usual one, in which all my choices are aimed at the production of a project. I’m also an architect, but it was a choice to forget a kind of constructional and distributive logic and to consider this project as an open/less strict process, somewhere between design and architetcture: I’ve used industrial scaffolding, I’ve partially deformed them and then I’ve dressed them with a light skin. Generally the scaffolding lives around the house, in our case it defines an ideal space, almost a non-house. The volume is perceived cubical, but the entrance is deformed to welcome. I enjoy the idea of a semi-transparent cocoon.
