Notes taken from Fausto Ferrara’s sketchbook:
“This particular project is born from the desire to realize a space for the artists, a place where the works of art can be produced, through the observation of the phenomena of the nature, in a place suspended as a limbo where the water dominant element, capture and it reflects the phenomenology of the natural events. A coverage, that becomes wall that produces that sense of house of sacred space and suspended, calm, action to make the mind of the people in a state of meditative suspension.
Also this project is a challenge between function and institution, between light and shade between subject and spirituality. Necessary dichotomies to give that complexity that belongs to the architecture that produces wonder. The architecture is for us, often produced not by a well defined function, but from a sense, from a pathos, from that we prefer to define a function of the mind”.Location: Hudson, New York, USA Architect: studio arckeo architetti & associati
