DAYS & PLACES
Rome’s Bruitalist Ruins.
Just outside Rome, in the town of Fregene stands the impressive Brutalist concrete structure that was once home to Italian architect Giuseppe Perugini. Perugini built ‘Casa Sperimentale’ in the late 60s, exploring the ideas of form and space, he designed his home to be experienced at a 1:1 scale. The striking home has been left untouched for over 20-years after Perugini passed away in 1995.
The neglected residence is in dire need of restoration, however, its presence amongst the overgrown wooded grounds with its rotating structures, kinetic elements and graffiti-riddled walls, make it the perfect backdrop for urban explorers's photography.
Astrologo places models around the derelict building to offer a sense of scale and explore the playful use of shapes and textures in this Brutalist masterpiece.
