CASA AL PRATICELLO | SLOT HOUSE
Built work, Formello, 2012-17
Slot House is a residential pavilion made up of a canopy, held up by pillars, and conceived as a terrace. Beneath this terrace—so, within this shell—the residential cell can be set up, organized spatially in a way that recalls the model of the Greek temple in a postmodern version, with its assembly kit of parts: the crepidoma, the cella, its covering, the peristasis made of columns. The covering is intended to be both a technological device and a way of accessing the house from the sky. Thus, it can be furnished with current collectors, and it is perforated to allow aerial transportation devices (for products and for people) to enter the residence. The value of this house model is also its price: like the low-cost Electric House (Casa Elettrica) proposed by the Italian architects Gruppo 7 in 1930, whose value was calculated to be 60,000 lire, the Slot House is calculated to be 100,000 euros for an all-inclusive 80 square meters.
