We build serene archaelogy for the present and future
and we invite you to build yourself a house outside time, a house that is as you should be, to live in here and now.
And finally we invite you to free yourselves of fears,
to gain the dignity of the present
and above all the constant use of reason.
- Adolfo Natalini, A House of Calm Serenity, 1969
Adolfo Natalini dies aged 79.
He co-founded the radical architecture group Superstudio.
The Frac Centre-Val de Loire paid tribute to him.
Founded in 1966 in Florence by Adolfo Natalini and Cristiano Toraldo di Francia, who were later joined by Gian Piero Frassinelli (in 1968), Roberto and Alessandro Magris, as well as Andrea Poli (between 1970 and 1972), Superstudio was one of the most influential architectural groups of the global avant-gardist scene in the 1960-1970s. The group has profoundly renewed the language and imagination of architecture, by its ability to formalize a globalized urban consciousness. The group was the first to make architecture a "Story".
