LUIGI PRESTINENZA PUGLISI
Unique independent voice observing contemporary transformations in architecture in Italy and beyond.
A critic of Architecture. For him, Criticism clarifies and makes precise choices; power is founded, instead, on concealment and mediation. He considers Prada Foundation a crib, and our reactionary time ‘romantic’: ‘gnawed by doubts’. He thinks we are ‘Obsessed with the terror of loss’, and we are building a huge Cribland: that ‘could hardly bear the intrusion of a factory, a Centre Pompidou, the Guggenheim of Bilbao or the last work of Hadid’.
