Architecture

The famous architect Duilio Forte gave an interview

The famous Italian architect toldRoomble, what he dreams of, where he gets inspiration and where he advises his followers to look for it. He also shared the story of the creation of his most famous project. Duilio Forte was born in Milan, has not only Italian, but also Swedish roots. Therefore, the main source of his inspiration is beyond doubt - where else are they so sensitive to nature and its philosophy, as in the Scandinavian countries. It is the traditions, mythology and the very essence of human existence in nature that Duilio Forte reinterprets in his projects. His installations and buildings seem to be a new word in architecture, but their creator himself treats it differently. All ideas for the interior of the future are already in our past. Human nature has not changed for centuries, and we still have the same problems. And to solve them, you do not need to go far - you just need to see and understand how these problems were solved by our ancestors. This is what I do in architecture. The study of Norse mythology inspiredarchitect to create installations that were installed not only in Venice, Milan and Turin, but also simply in forests, fields and near water bodies. They represent images of mythological and creatures invented by the author. Moreover, these images carry not only antiquity, but also innovations - they are all interactive and stand on the verge between archeology and science fiction. So, in addition to nature, Duilio Forte has other, more specific teachers. Finding a new approach to the old and the familiar is the architect's task. For me, an example is the French architect Le Corbusier. It would seem - a window, we know everything about it. Through it, light enters the house, with its help you can ventilate the room or bring the sofa into the house after renovation. And Corbusier created new windows through which the sofa cannot be brought into the house with all the desire. Seeing new in old is the main task facing an architect. Chapel Ronshan, architect Le Corbusier SvoiDuilio Forte tries to pass on his principles and views to a new generation of architects. For this there is atelierFORTE studio, founded back in 1998, as well as a summer architecture school in Sweden. All training is built on practice, the study of wood and metal, attempts to penetrate the essence of the material and understand how to work with it further. The Italian architect takes this understanding very seriously. A prospective architect or interior designer should be curious, yet follow their own inclinations. It’s impossible to do well what you don’t like. And when it becomes clear what you want, you need to work on yourself until you are sure that you are doing it the best. With this kind of confidence, it will be much easier to try yourself in new areas. Another brainchild of Duilio Forte is the ArkiZoic project.Within its framework, modern houses are being erected, in which ancient rituals, culture, and habits of people are preserved. And the most striking example of such a dwelling is the house of the future, created by the architect for the Stanze exhibition ("Rooms. New Concepts of Life"), which took place as part of the XXI Triennale in Milan this spring. In every detail, in every piece of furniture, the image of a polar bear is guessed here. Actually, the house itself is a big polar bear. When I was thinking about the project, I thought that in the age of innovative technologies, people may well live in small houses in the bosom of nature and at the same time not feel cut off from the world. But unfortunately, in reality, 50% of humanity now lives in cities. Therefore, my big dream is to build a city in accordance with my views and show how a person can actually live in harmony with nature. How would this city be arranged? Let me think ... maybe it would be a forest city! An interview with Duilio Forte took place as part of a program of seminars held at the i Saloni WorldWide Moscow 2016 exhibition in the Crocus Expo exhibition center from October 12th to 15th.
