Une machine à penserLa maison de Paros de Silvia Gmür et Livio Vacchini

Roberto Masiero - Une machine à penser
A reflection on the relationship between architecture, art, philosophy and politics based on the house of Paros by Silvia Gmür and Livio Vacchini, a real "thinking machine" offering a lesson of architecture.
The house in Paros by Silvia Gmür and Livio Vacchini, in its apparent simplicity, answers all the questions that an architect asks himself when he designs; it is in itself a lesson in architecture. This house is a machine for thinking because it makes us think the fact of thinking, see the fact of seeing, feel the fact of feeling. A machine that makes us be what we are, feel how we feel.
Roberto Masiero, in a very sophisticated way, accompanies us in an exercise of interpretation that, starting from the house of Paros, invites us to reflect on the links between architecture, art, philosophy and politics.
Roberto Masiero (born 1944) is an architect and has been a professor of architectural history at the IUAV in Venice. He studies building techniques and aesthetic phenomena of modernity and the contemporary.
