Bonaventura Visconti di Modrone

In my work I start with forms or material gestures that often come from outside the realm of architecture, in the conviction that things can always be re-examined and reinterpreted, and could in turn also be seen as architecture. The way someone can see a butterfly or a lake in the ink blots of a Rorschach test. I try to look freely at material gestures and forms and let them perform as architecture. In this way, architecture emerges by imagining a next step to the previous steps that have been taken, in an attempt to let the work remain interpretable, in much the same way it originated.

Bonaventura Visconti di Modrone (1986) graduated in 2014 from the Aarhus School of Architecture in Aarhus (Denmark) with a thesis on the haitian rural architecture and in 2016, after he finished his first project, Ti kay là, a housing complex for 30 haitian kids in Anse-à-Pitres, started his own studio.
Today his office is based in Milan. His work ranges from social architecture to temporary structures and buildings.
