Cabinets of Curiosities • October 2019 • Publications: Divisare, Gooood
Inspired by the 16th century idea of Wunderkammer, Cabinets of Curiosities is a set of eight interior views, exploring the strict relationship between assemblage and form, typology and space, presence and representation. Each view depicts a different project, and is characterized by the obsessive and intrusive presence of objects: miniatures, abstract volumes, drawings, photographs, paintings. These isolated objects transcend their material condition to become something else: the wholeness of any architectural proposal can only be determined by the combination of these fragments, which occasionally take the shape of plans, sections, interior and city perspectives. Their juxtaposition favors comparison; the end result is a symbolic inventory of all possible forms of representation.
