Is the house still a cube?
Is the house still conceivable as a cube? Or can it be rather thought as a system of boxes? What happens if a house is divided into different parts and spread out around the plot? Is it still a house, or does it become something else? In other words, can a house be broken down into its component parts and keep its character at the same time?
Distribution and disposition
One of the first clues is given by one of the leading architecture schools in Europe during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries – the École des Beaux-Arts de Paris. Conceived to teach a “timeless architecture,” it underwent several changes of direction in response to the increasing complexity of the design tasks and technological development.
Before the École des Beaux-Arts’ main shifts in design approach, the conception of a main shape of a building was based on volume and on dividing up its spaces by using classical tools like symmetry and bays. This practice can be summarized by the word distribution. With the passage of time (the design for architects became progressively more complex. As the cities grew, the functional and programmatic aspects of constructing a building placed more demands than ever upon architects. In this phase, the buildings started to be thought as an assemblage (or better, a composition) of masses and spaces. The main shape of a building was no longer achieved by dividing and subdividing a single entity. Combining components, composing with elements, gained prominence . In this particular moment a significative shift from distribution to composition can be appreciated.

Wall Craft

Wall craft
The wall starts to exist when the man becomes a farmer after being a nomad.
The new need of sedentariness drove him to reproduce the places where he lived before – such as caves and tents – simply stacking stones to protect himself from weather, animals and hostility of men.
The wall was intended as a shield between the internal and the external environment; it was the main bearing structure in the 20th century and its exterior surfaces became a “medium” to give iconography support to the holy and profane social organizations, a statement of hierarchy and society.
In the 20th century the development of reinforced concrete and the evolution of steel structure, the architectural language changes. The envelope loses its thickness and becomes a membrane. In a long time period, architects discovered all its expressive potential and the different languages represented by the materials. The Architect becomes a graffiti artist and begins to leave his ‘tags’ on the walls.
The exterior side of the envelope on a building is known as the facade. With the same term it is possible to describe somebody's appearance. This could be read as a negative connotation if it doesn't correspond to his true character.
If we study the meaning of these two words, we can define the “facade” as the non-structural layer and “honest” as the bearing wall. Let’s read, on this regard, the following selection of recent projects, starting with the metaphor of “honest” wall:
Valerio Olgiati is a Swiss architect. He designed the “Atelier Bardill in Scharans, Switzerland” for a musician that occupies the site of a former barn in the old center of Scharans, Switzerland.
To get planning permission the new building within the protected historical villagescape, the same volume of the old barn had to be rebuilt. He does so but in concrete painted in red.
