Drawings and Visions by Italian Futurist Architects | Socks Studio
In 1914 Antonio Sant’Elia signed the “Manifesto per un’architettura futurista“, a text coming a few years later the more known “Manifesto del Futurismo” (1909) and “Manifesto dei pittori futuristi” (1910). Whereas the basic concepts of Futurist Architecture follow the general lines given by previous Futurist Manifestos (refuse of the past, magnification of dynamism, opposition to academism), there are several points which refer to the specificity of architectural language and express interesting views.
One is about the idea of an architecture which is not meant to last: “Houses will endure less than us. Every generation must build its own city”: even if this sentence seems to collide with Sant’Elia’s drawing for indeed massive and complex buildings, it’s an original concept in the panorama of Western architecture.

Harbor Attic - Gosplan
Located in the small fishing town of Camogli, Italy is Harbor Attic, a 35 square meter attic residence designed by Gosplan. Situated above a fisherman’s private residence, the house provides two small bedrooms, studio, kitchen, living room, limited floor space and an abundance of built in storage.
I don’t like corrupting posts with my mundane comments, but wow, this is (almost) perfect. I might love to live here. Absolutely gorgeous, albeit slightly small.
