NOTES ON LA MADDALENA by Stefano Boeri.
Shown at the Monditalia shown at the Architecture Biennale in Venice (2014) featured the video installation ‘La Maddalena’ by Ila Beka and Louise Lemoine.

“Over the last few weeks the whole of the last twenty months has constantly been present in my mind. I have ordered and re-ordered memories, places, facts and the way that relationships and alliances developed over time. This obsessive ‘looking-back’ has helped me with more clarity what happened around me, and around us, and to our La Maddalena project. It is not always easy to develop general arguments through the use of introspection. This time, however, perhaps more than on other occasions – it is important that an effort is made to externalise these issues. And this process might also be of some use for others. Here, then, are some reflections that range from details to ideas about news, through memories and general considerations about the profession of the architect.”
