The architects of the other materialism

Filippo Bricolo

Abstract


The secular bond between materiality and meaning in architecture has undergone, during the twentieth-century phase of productivistic optimism, a strong weakening. Starting from the analysis of some masterpieces, created by architects not aligned with Modernist orthodoxy, the paper seeks out the need to mend the relationship between materiality and sense.
