Calvi Ceschia Viganò comes from a friendship, from the sharing of ideas and the awareness that uniting our three personal paths in a shared vision would have extended everyone’s view. Thinking city and territory as a collective and plural fact, expression of the public values of a community and architecture as an individual and singular moment, based on the particular vision of each one, we take care to solve the implicit contradiction that opposes them by means of precise design solutions.
The thirty years of study and work experience of each one has taught us that the encounter between “history” and project, between public and private value, between permanence and transformation, between continuity and fragmentation, between rule and exception can produce an effective impact in terms of difference and complexity of result without unbalancing the delicate relationship between architecture and the people who inhabit the city and the territory. Architecture is discontinuous in time and space, to be linked to events, to changes in power relations, to the rapid cycle of institutional, functional and aesthetic transformations. It is always unfinished so that it can never aspire to permanence, subject to the perennial game of changes and replacements. We believe it is interesting to create an architecture that considers the becoming as a project variable, so that the life of the building, without the control of its author, can still be a generator of new and positive relationships, most often unexpected.
