“Bottega” during the fifteenth century was the place of production and creativity, the place where European cities were thought and designed, it was a space where craft and know-how were rooted in the experience of the masters. Contemporary architecture must resume that know-how, that its being rooted in identities of the places. From these it must give birth to new contemporary languages, expression of the place and time in which we live. Innovation is a process that arises from the recognition of local identity characters and which also evolves through the use of new technologies, which are now giving life to a new craft.
The place is precisely the object of our attention, as an experienced space, as an element of a layered environmental and anthropic system, which today we call landscape.
