Studiolo Berlin presents Savage Architecture, an exhibition by Gian Piero Frassinelli, Superstudio and 2A+P/A previously showcased at Architectural Association of London and in various schools and institutions in Florence, Milan, Bruxelles and Rome
Assuming the form of an exhibition and a book, curated by Davide Sacconi, Savage Architecture portraits the research developed by Gian Piero Frassinelli – former member of Superstudio – and his recent collaboration with 2A+P/A which explore the intersection between architecture and anthropology. Savage Architecture is a journey to the root of the relationship between architecture and man in four episodes. Departing from Frassinelli’s unpublished graduation thesis for an Anthropology Research Center (1968), lingering on the dystopian and revealing scenarios of The Twelve Ideal Cities (1972), the trajectory culminates in the recent collaborative projects of Frassinelli and 2A+P/A for the Budapest Ethnographic Museum (2014) and the Central Archive of Human Cultures (2015).
