Sgraffito–> scratching through wet plaster on a wall showing different-colour under surface (2 color)
The title comes from italian “sgraffito” – a wall decor technique commonly used in Europe to decorate castles and chateaus during the Renaissance.
— Italy in the 16th century
Sgraffito played a significant role during the years of the Renaissance in Italy. As a simple native art old examples of sgraffito were found in Florence and more specifically in the chateaus , Palazzo Ramirez de Montalvo and Palazzo Peppi [draft sketch included for the first one to GET you in the subject]
During the 16th century the technique was brought to Germany by the master builders of the Renaissance and taken up with enthusiasm by the formative craftsmen..
In Catalonia, sgraffito was implemented in the early 20th century by the Noucentista neo-classical architects and became a recurrent technique in façade decoration.

The Los Angeles Design Group, reveiled their elaborated-allthough a bit over-worked to my taste-concept for some random fashion space after the completion of the competition, and if i might say….
“Pigs in a box” represents a super radical scheme reconceptualised through a simple and fresh idea; using balloon animals and randomly fuck up the space.
i believe that even The BIG would be envious of such skills.!!
When looking at the plan i clearly can see the intention of the firm to cultivate plug-and-play thresholds, embodied into the almost schizophrenic anatomy of the parametrical apparatus inserted into a random box. Simply stunning!
*Even the renderings seem to enhance their concept of stratifying ruderal ecosystems through a deterritorialization of indexical grids
Just to see how a real bunch of geniuses sets up their office..maybe one day you can aspire the same levels of greatness…Yes, designers do it better, but you architecture bitchez can do it too…
