Here we can see the “Lasagna House” of the modern movement.
On the ground floor we have the Farnsworth House (1945-1951): built as a weekend retreat, is a platonic perfection of order gently placed in spontaneous nature in Plano, Illinois. The glass pavilion takes full advantage of relating to its natural surroundings, achieving Mies' concept of a strong relationship between the house and nature. His idea for shading and privacy was through the many trees that were located on the private site.
Although there were some problems with the maintenance of the house due to flooding and the livability of the design that involved complaints about the poor ventilation of the interior as well as cost overruns, there is no doubt that the Farnsworth House is the essence of simplicity in its purest form.
Upstairs we go to Poissy, a small commune outside of Paris, where we can find one of the most significant contributions to modern architecture in the 20th century, Ville Savoye by Le Corbusier. Completed in 1929, Villa Savoye celebrates and reacts to the new machine age, conceptually defining the house as “a machine for living”.
Here we can see Le Corbusier’s famous “Five Points” of architecture:
Pilotis, Flat Roof Terrace, Open Plan, Ribbon Windows, Free Façade.
The house appears to be floating above the forested picturesque background supported by slender pilotis that seem to dissolve among the tree line.
Ville Savoye is a house designed based on the architectural promenade. Its experience is in the movement through the spaces.
On the second floor, we move to Santa Marinella, on the roman coast. Here in 1952 the journalist Francesco Malgieri asked Italian architect Luigi Moretti to design a villa for his daughter. Moretti thinks of Saracena as a building completely immersed in the surrounding context, closed towards the street and barrier-free towards the sea. The plan is divided into two parts: the living area overlooking the coast and the sleeping area looking inwards; the areas are connected by a gallery, open onto the private garden. The architect conceives the house as a place to protect ourselves, a domestic nest open to the sky and the sea. “A house as a desire of a different life". That sense of protection is given by the immobility of the material and the thick walls with organic shapes in plastered reinforced concrete.
Giclée art printing papers
Hahnemühle German Etching - This heavyweight paper has a slightly warm base tone and a strong mottled texture. It creates a print with strong colours and deep blacks that feel rich and high in contrast. This is due to the texture of the paper enabling it to hold more ink and capture the light. The German Etching is one of the heavier weight Giclée art printing papers. With its weight and strong texture this paper gives an artwork a handmade crafted feel. Hahnemüle German Etching is a robust Giclée paper, meaning it doesn’t tend to fray as much at the edges.
