Odysseus' House

The house of Odysseus is not a dream, an obsession: the house of Odysseus is real, because I build it every day in my mind; it is real because it is the foundation of all my thinking about architecture. From the relationship between the Ulysses of Homer and the Ulysses of Joyce, I deduce the features of a representative figure of contemporary life and translate them into forms, places and architecture. The building becomes a kind of sculpture carved into the rock of Mount Sorticata, an installation generated by the interaction of multiple trajectories: the visual axes oriented by Montebello Castle and the sea, the cardinal points and the traces of previous civilizations that furrow the secularized territory.
