Superficie Tessuto Corpo
The short film focuses on the work of the italian architect Giovanni Vaccarini and his research by referencing some of his previous built projects.
The short film, that briefly resumes Giovanni Vaccarini’s design research by referencing some of his previous built projects, introduces the theme of the surface which, in his work, almost turns into a fabric and hence into a body. The project for Powerbarn in particular hints to the Razzle Dazzle mimetic strategy that takes cues from a military camouflage technique. The building offers mutable and faceted displays of itself that vary depending on the weather, time of day and season. Giovanni Vaccarini himself guides the narratio in the short film, by recounting the significant steps in the design of Powerbarn, starting from the conceptual phase up to the definition of its relationship with the natural environment all around. Fabio Paolucci’s photography exalts the ethereal, almost abstract, qualities of the building. Daniela De Francesco of The Piranesi Experience leads the viewer to discover the solid but ever-changing materiality of the project by Giovanni Vaccarini for the bioenergy power plant in Russi (Ravenna, Italy).
