BRUNO ZEVI TOWARDS AN ORGANIC ARCHITECTURE PDF

Zevi was deeply opposed to both the cold, ahuman modernism of Gropius and the abstract principles of order, proportion and symmetry that governed classical forms. Lacking a modern code, they weakened and regressed to the familiar womb of classicism. No rupture, no dissonance, no fragmention. One such building, completed in , just as Zevi was taking up his position at the University of Rome, was the Studio Passarelli, on via Campania.

Zevi was deeply opposed to both the cold, ahuman modernism of Gropius and the abstract principles of order, proportion and symmetry that governed classical forms. Lacking a modern code, they weakened and regressed to the familiar womb of classicism. No rupture, no dissonance, no fragmention. One such building, completed in , just as Zevi was taking up his position at the University of Rome, was the Studio Passarelli, on via Campania. Studio Passarelli, upper floors Zevi was particularly fond of another building, this one in the suburban Piazza Bologna neighborhood, and of its architect, Piero Sartogo.

The two men met for the first time in when the building, the headquarters of the Rome Medical Association, was under construction, "a few yards" from where Zevi lived. This is not an anonymous container with a regular structural framework into which rooms fit like drawers in a Medical Office Building chest.

The pilasters are coupled, and when required, they slide into a horizontal position expanding into beam-walls to envelope the auditorium, the cantilevered seminar rooms, the double-height foyers, and the periodical library.

The result is an organism structurally engaged in modulating the interlocking continuity of the spaces and displaying their spatial volumes both inside and outside. It neither possesses a previous art gallery or a series of extremely rare medical treatises.

We lack a cultural tradition in the professions, and those seemingly odd but prestigious rituals that establish status do not exist. Furthermore, you have chosen a suburban location for your headquarters in a neighborhood full of apartment buildings: Do you want to erect a monument or a bogus Guild Hall? When we met architect Piero Sartogo in , he told us the structure had been placed on the historic structures registry and was in line for a facelift.
