In December 2016 MEGA invites casatibuonsante architects, Parasite 2.0, Raumplan and Supervoid to collaborate in developing an exhibition project. The four offices are asked to work on a shared project, which could synthesize a plural prospective by realizing an unusual object: something related to architecture, but without using the classical ways through which architecture represents itself.
After several meetings and discussions, the four groups weren’t able to find a point of understanding, and highlighted the insurmountable incompatibility of their theoretical positions and references. Thus we decided to represent the stages of our failure in a publication about conflict. The book reports the emails with discussions, drafts and some images proposed as references by each group.
Quattroperzero is the photograph of a missing architecture. It registers a theoretical, ethical and aesthetic fragmentation that has proven to be unsurpassable, even for people from the same generation, working in the same field and in a similar context.
