The Studio Palermo is a cooperative architectural design firm primarily located in Vienna, Austria.
The Studio was founded by Philip H. Wilck in 2011. Their work ranges from architecture, urban planning, design and art.
The work is inspired and positioned by toughts that can be paraphrased with a New Romanticism. This certain viewing angle considers the question where the individual human and his deeply inherent and natural structure of needs and dreams is located compared to this prospering world of techniques, computation, industrialisation and globalisation. This focal point influences the space creating design processes and bears his result in form and design.
“How boring has perfection become?” (H.D. Alonso)
“Evidence of this lies in the fact that our contemporary design obsessions are based on an appreciation for the perversity of mutant form, a taste learned from the movies and set to work on architecture.
By subverting the logic of perfection and beauty, non-perfect images coming from controlled methodologies are generated. What used to be about mastering the result of a non-perfect process is now about the production of monstrosity and the grotesque throughout accurate mechanisms.“ ExcessiveStudio
Committed to the futility to comprehend the world with the aid of rational systems, as well as from the inferiority of every perfect thought compared to the inherent laws of NATURE. A New Romanticism approaches new areas in design and architecture processes – space and mind generating processes per se.
Here is where the true transformation is happening. We are subverting the logic of perfection: what used to be about mastering the result of a non-perfect process is now about the production of monstrosity and the grotesque thought the mathematical perfection of an evolutive mechanism.
