Fragments of a Day

roomonfiredesign:

Brion Cemetary in San Vito d’Altivole near Treviso, Italy is considered Italian architect Carlo Scarpa’s most important and complex work. “I consider this work, if you permit me, to be rather good and one which will get better over time. I have tried to put some poetic imagination into it, though not in order to create poetic architecture but to make a certain kind of architecture that could emanate a sense of formal poetry. The place for the dead is a garden. I wanted to show some ways in which you could approach death in a social and civic way; and further what meaning there was in death, in the ephemerality of life other than these shoe-boxes.” Scarpa died in 1978, in a construction site accident. He is buried in this cemetery in a standing position in a hidden spot within the interstitial space where the walls of the old and new cemeteries meet.

HELP WANTED.

We need your help. You see that toebox shape on the bottom one? That is how we like it. Just like it was in the ol’ days. Yet current New Balance 1500 models have their toebox shaped like the top one. That ain’t cool.

Please take a minute of your day to sign the petition — even if you don’t care about this issue personally — and know that your help is very much appreciated by many New Balance sneakerheads.
