Literary Architecture. Through illustrated explorations, three-dimensional stories, spacious ideas.
An exhibition on the experimentation of Matteo Pericoli through architecture and illustration.
“A great architect knows how to make us move through space with fluidity and circumspection; he makes us slow down to observe all the details; he can surprise us or reassure us. A great writer does the same.”
Why not think of designing an architecture in which structure is based on literary works of art?
Matteo Pericoli, illustrator and architect, has created and given life to a laboratory of imagination and design where expectations and tensions, surprises and narrative voices from novels are transmitted through architectural structures to take extraordinary forms.
Born from an intuition, the literary architecture project is a revelation without words that takes a trip around the world and returns to Eggers 2.0 to expose and tell its story. Through drawn plots, illustrated views, sequences of volumes, illuminating books.
