The architects' stories

My Prisons - Alessandro Mendini

The idea of rethinking the Cabanon, the bolt hole built by Le Corbusier on the Côte d’Azur 1952, becomes a pretext for a reflection on the amount of space man effectively needs. A long way from the sea, this is a long-distance dialogue, respectful yet also critical: while Corbu designed it according to the Modulor, Riva relies on the safety of logic, opting for an empirical interrogation of the “primordial” elements of the domestic environment.
