" Elladio Dieste says that, when approaching excellence, architecture is the music of space. Architecture would be similar to a rhythm, a kind of harmonic modulation that allows us to distinguish, without seeing it, the hidden order of space. Similarly, reversing the terms, one could say that music is the architecture of time: in this sense, music can attribute body extension and consistency to time. Both definitions refer to unsurpassed levels, those towards which every art always tends. "
Carlos Martí Arís, Eloquent Silences
The space in which we are immersed constitutes the soundtrack of our existence. Imagining and composing new spaces is equivalent to adding new songs to listen to: silent melodies between volumes that resonate with light and shadow.
Studio Ventidue (s-22) offers spatial solutions through a continuous search between roots and projection, between what has been and what could be, recognizing the greatest resource of the project to the limit.
Time, space, and therefore, architecture.
Interpretation and synthesis guide the design activity, seeking comparison with the breadth of possibilities, from the scale of the city to that of the object. Finally, passion requires us to consider space not as a result to be achieved, but as the principle on which our ambitions are based.
It represents the answer to a thousand questions.
The necessary change.
The right sound.
