ADS10 – Savage Architecture

Savage is the architecture that rejects the domestic man, refusing to impose the power of reason over his animal, symbolic, vital and therefore political dimension.

Savage is the architecture that looks at the primitive without the burden of progress or development but with the freedom of the barbaric and the wisdom of the ancestral, with a profound awareness of the collective character of architectural knowledge.

Savage Architecture is the difficult achievement of a field of tensions between control and freedom, narrative and technology, individual expression and collective rituals. Savage Architecture is a constellation of forms, mechanisms and narratives that aim to give form and value to the irreducible dichotomies of mankind.
