Description

 

Mario Botta's architecture can be considered as a natural prosecution of the principles of International Style. However, the accentuated simmetry and the extensive use of pure solids, make his architecture both Postmodern and Neoclassic, with a slight reminiscence of Palladio.

"I imagined a building with a circular plan, cut across its north-south axis by fissure from which the zenithal light descends. A volume organised on three levels, a sort of tower, or rather, an object designed and cut out itself. The intention was to avoid any comparison and/or contrast with the surrounding buildings, but to search instead for a spatial relationship with the distant landscape and horizon."

The search for form and form spatial and constructional organization, in accordance with these intentions, motivated my work on the project. I was substained by the convinction that I must in these times propose a different environmental condition, capable of embracing the primary and constant necessities of living and of suiting them to the new sensibility and to the new aspirations determined by culture today. In the them to the round hoouse, as for that matters in others, this condition has re-stated my work as an architect as a constant starting again from the beginning, a continual revision of the codes and "certainties" matured and acquired in earlier projects." info source: www.botta.ch
