Based on an idea by Lucia Bosso / BasedArchitecture
In collaboration with the Consiglio Nazionale degli Architetti

To what extant can architecture be understood from a photograph? How much do we know about and how much are we unaware of regarding a project based on a photographic image?

During this series we shall be meeting some of the most interesting contemporary Italian practitioners – an architect and a photographer – who have proved capable of creating a building, a significant place for the territory and the community, and to interpret it photographically, amplifying perception of it and its underlying meanings.

Five seminars exploring the symbiotic relationship between architecture, its designer and the photographer who portrays it

In the third seminar the architect and professor Gianluca Peluffo will be meeting the photographer Ernesta Caviola.

Gianluca Peluffo designs, builds and communicates an idea of architecture as a specific genealogical identity, inherently capable of dialogue on an international level; an idea of architecture that rather than eclectic is “of the Renaissance” in that it is composed of physical matter, as well as of corporality and spirit, and “contemporary” in as much as it is expressed through an idiom capable of containing multiple times in the same space. Gianluca Peluffo & Partners was founded in 2017, overlooking the sea of the “Riviera”, after 20 years of architectural creativity and construction with 5+1AA.

For 20 years Ernesto Caviola has recounted architecture and the city through photography. An architect and analogue photographer, through the plates of a view camera she has plumbed the built space with an original idiom as the reverberation of the anima mundi and its feminine sensibility.
