Graphic Transcriptions. Le Corbusier and the Bologna Enigma

Francesco Maggio, University of Palermo, Department of Architecture

Keywords: redrawing, history, unbuilt.


The “architectures in the drawer” turn out as real thermometers of the culture of their time. The digital model, continuously swinging in motions of History, Representation and Design, is the catalyst of the representation, the starting point for the construction of new images of possible architectures. The drawing is a knowledge process that intervenes both on the field of project making and processing, and on that of interpretation and critical analysis of the work.
The redrawing of Église pour Bologne wants to reconstruct the path that those ‘eyes’ had seen to fornent knowledge of an architecture of which remain few graphics clues.
