304_Andrea Cappiello: Monastic Archive

Submission #304 | Andrea Cappiello: Monastic Archive — “The word ‘archive’ generally indicates a working system structured towards the efficient recall of items.

Jointless modernist organisms work so hard to detail in ways that hide the actual mechanics and ontological condensation of how buildings come into being.
