A well-known Italian architect toldRoomble, about what he dreams, where he draws inspiration and where he advises him to seek his followers. And he also shared the history 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 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. Its installations and buildings seem to be a new word in architecture, but the creator himself refers to it in a different way. All ideas for the interior of the future already exist in our past. Human nature has not changed for centuries, and our problems are still the same. And to solve them, you do not need to go far - you just have to see and understand how these problems were solved by our ancestors. This is what I do in architecture. The study of Scandinavian mythology inspiredarchitect for the creation of installations that were installed not only in Venice, Milan and Turin, but also simply in forests, fields and water bodies. They are images of mythological and fictional creatures. And 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. Find a new approach to the old and familiar - that's the task of the architect. For me, an example is the French architect Le Corbusier. It would seem - the window, we all know about it. Through it, light enters the house, with its help it is possible to ventilate the room or a sofa in the house to bring in after repair. And Corbusier created new windows, through which the sofa in the house does not bring with all the desire. Seeing the new in the old is the main task that faces the architect. Chapel Ronshan, architect Le Corbusierprinciples and views Douilio Forte is trying to convey to a new generation of architects. To do this, there is a studio atelierFORTE, founded in 1998, as well as a summer architectural school in Sweden. All training is built on practice, studying wood and metal, trying to get into the essence of the material and understand how to work with it further. To this understanding, the Italian architect applies with all seriousness. The future architect or interior designer should be inquisitive, but at the same time follow his own inclinations. After all, it is impossible to do well what you do not like. And when it becomes clear what you want, you need to work on yourself until you are sure that you are doing it best. With such 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 built, in which ancient rituals, culture, habits of people are preserved. And the most striking example of such a home is the house of the future, created by the architect for the Stanze exhibition ("Rooms, New Concepts of Life"), which took place in the framework 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 conceived the project, I was thinking about the fact that in the age of innovative technologies people can live in small houses in the bosom of nature and at the same time do not feel themselves 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.
