Abstract

Dialoguing with the artistical, cultural and architectonical heritage involves coming face to face not only with the tangible reality but also with the intangible: the idealization they under go and the crystallisation of the collective imaginary about them. It is about facing the limits of these visions to overcome them and produce new stratified values on the existing. The goal is to collectively take back the value of the heritage, no longer through idealization and contemplation but by searching for what could have been or could be, what has not been or is not yet. The submitted work plays with one of the masterpieces of a twentieth century master: the Farnsworth house by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Based on solid scientific research aimed at reconstructing the misty events that have affected the house, we want to understand and overcome the collective imagination through research and the practice of a project based on fantasizing. Starting from the research on the Farnsworth house we intend to address the issue of the architectural and imaginative re-elaboration and remodeling of masterful architectural works. We want to prove how the reinterpretation and the exercise, even of a provocative kind, of design fantasies allow us to reach a real knowledge of the heritage and its value stratifications.
