Adventures in Absurdistan
Minor architecture in the age of total bureaucratization
Giacomo Borella is an architect. He founded studio Albori in Milan with some friends almost thirty years ago. In these three decades, the work of the studio has increasingly concerned the practical and bodily dimension as an antidote to the abstraction, alienation and counterproductivity of late modern architecture. He has collaborated with various magazines, newspapers and radio stations, and some of his writings have been published in the booklet “Per un’architettura terrestre” (Letteraventidue, 2016). He has edited and translated into Italian books
by Ivan Illich, Petr Kropotkin and Colin Ward. He’s currently visiting professor at the Accademia di Architettura of Mendrisio in Switzerland.
