“I tell you all my secrets, but I laugh about my past”


Architectural form and its relationship to nature, environment and society has rich antecedents to the human body. The two entrances are generating a float of visitors, it becomes a spatial structure, where nature is the most critical part… all is one, through the water and earth up to the sky, one floating language not divided by any doors or windows, an open system. The human body becomes part of the architecture, it is not the form or shape anymore; the roots, this rhizometric structure is the design idea for this organic sculpture. It generates an artificial mangrove where everything comes together, earth, water, sky and the human being, stranded like an organism on Venice borders, not mortal… alive like a nightingale, which leaves the blood in the morning on concealed steel.
