Massimo Scolari, an Italian architect, painter and designer, recently told Danielle Rago of Abitare.it,“architecture is a way of knowing the world and exploring the world in the most poetic way”. Through Scolari’s extensive forty year career, his visionary drawings ultimately redefines the anatomy of architecture and the ideas of urbanism.

The above watercolour expresses both structure and  evidence of surrealism whilst outlining significant points in time for the ever – evolving architecture industry. This is something which interests me greatly – a graduated architect using their knowledge in the field to then artistically show the various turning points between 1967 and the present.

Again, in Scolari’s above piece, you can see the outlines of architectural structures and how they have become a part of the industry today.

The above (presuming this is something from an old sketchbook of Scolari’s) shows some of his earlier thought processes and ideas.
