Island tools

The use of island tools implies the abandonment of absolute anthropocentrism, of the greed for space, as a coexistence between different living beings is proposed as an act of belonging to the world and as an antidote to detachment. The small island architectures, fragmented but united by a common meaning, as happens in an archipelago, become environments inhabited by different forms of life. These systems are built in the wild from natural and local materials in respect of what surrounds them, prepared to be parasitized and varied in and by time. These are places of temporary acceptance of the human being, of approach to the natural and absence of the mania of ‘forever’, of mutual and equal encounter. The human being nests in the islands, allowing the architectures to be nested in turn.
