No gold this time - sharing our proposal for the Pinocchio's Library Competition in Italy titled, "It doesn’t matter..."
The proposal celebrates Carlo Lorenzin’s birth of inspiration - the Collodi village. The library amplifies Collodi’s urban village and hidden narratives by recording the village’s negative space as a formal and spatial generator along with the key axes of the locality. The library is not one monument or object but as a series of fragmented and dispersed yet unified library that encourages exploration to create your own narratives and mythologies. The library is seen as part of the urban sphere, embedding itself within the township and continuing the assemblage and cascading language of the Collodi Village. The ‘Catalogue of Spatial and Formal Types’ curates the spatial and formal potentials that could be discovered within the complex. There are buildings, courtyards, towers, slits, viewing platforms, exhibition spaces, gardens, rooftops, library laneways, bridges and more that could be traversed and explored that have variation and differentiation with complex spatial relationships with adjacent buildings. It doesn’t matter where you go... just go..."
The proposal is a continuation of our investigation on procedural typological experiments as a catalyst for architectural possibilities. ♦

From now on, every time I take a look at this picture I will not remember how majestic and how strong the water came crashing down on the rocks below but, I will remember all the trials and tribulations I had to go through to even reach this place. I will remember how I took the risk in climbing sketchy hills, icy paths and using a fallen tree to safely traverse across a raging river all while carrying my camera equipment. Then doing it all over again to get back home. That is what I will remember whenever I look at this picture. .
