What if a facade could express a concept, a mood, an idea, a dream?
Welcome to Fantasy Motel! A geometric, hypnotic, architectural trip into my mind.
I have a great passion for architecture, especially contemporary one, and graphics.
I love facades and all the stories that buildings have to tell to us.
Behind the appearance (the facade indeed) of lifeless and soulless stone, a building can express a feeling, a mood, a concept, an idea or maybe a dream.
This is the background of my project "Fantasy Motel", which takes its title from the original structure, the basic pattern for all the series, a floating Motel in Amsterdam, shooted in my recent trip to the dutch capital city.
The original facade had neutral tones and regular patterns, which easily allowed me to express my fantasy, playing with colors, repetition and positioning of windows and curtains.
The result is a series of hypnotic and captivating straight facades, which try to convey through their geometries some simple ideas and some deeper concepts.
The project has been published in Designboom, Divisare, Architettura-Italiana, Archi.ru Russia, Tendencias Magazine Spain, Catalogodiseno Chile, Lamų slėnis Lituania, VBenzeri Turkey.
