Habitation is connected with time, space and human existance in a fundamental and determinant way and therefore so is the typology of habitation. One of the core topics of Luca Selva Architects’ work is the research and development of new and specific typologies of domestic architecture. These typologies follow the restraints of the site, the site’s orientation, the programme and of outside influences. The typolgy is the DNA of every single project and contains the distillate of architecture. It uncovers and stores the basic information of architecture. This means that every architecture inheres a particular site and ascertainable cultural, economical and physical conditions that have influenced the design. The persistent pursuit of the most coherent project for a specific site leads to very differentiated typologies. In the eyes of Luca Selva Architects this is their fundamental contribution to this year’s Biennale. The theme of the display is the debate about specific typologies. The floorplans of various typologies are presented in upright frames on equal scale and orientation with a legend explaining the boundary conditions. The identical presentation of the various floorplans enhances the perception of differences. In combination with the rejection of showing photographic depictions of the buildings, it strenghtens the view on the fundamental aspect of architecture.
