The Provocation of Simplicity

The difficult naturalness of the recovery of an architecture and a landscape.

The title given to this presentation may seem paradoxical: in fact, there is no architecture less “provocative” than that of Marco Contini. It has a prevailing sense of proportion that is the architect’s way of being “measured”, in a material, metric and dimensional sense, in the control of perception, but also – and especially – in the ethical sense.
