The Atmosphere at the portuguese architect Raul Lino´s summer house ( 1920)
A CASA BRANCA in Azenhas do Mar, Portugal

Casa Branca

Casa branca em frente ao mar enorme,
Com o teu jardim de areia e flocos marinhas
E o teu silêncio intacto em que dorme
O milagre das coisas que eram minhas.

A ti eu voltarei após o incerto
Calor de tantos gestos recebidos
Passados os tumultos e o deserto
Beijados os fantasmas, percorridos
Os murmúrios da terra indefinida.

Em ti renascerei num mundo meu
E a redenção virá nas tuas linhas
Onde nenhuma coisa se perdeu
Do milagre das coisas que eram minhas.

in Poesia I (1944)

The Atmosphere at Praia da Aguda, Portugal

There is a sea

A far and distant sea

Beyond the largest line,

Where all my ships that went astray,

Where all my dreams of yesterday

Are mine.

Reflecting on a childhood recollection of running through a village in springtime, he said:

"This is my first memory of something which I think was pure presence, with no meaning and no history."

"Architecture is not about form, it is about many other things," he said. "The light and the use, and the structure, and the shadow, the smell and so on. I think form is the easiest to control, it can be done at the end."

"...in his Royal Gold Medal lecture at the RIBA in London yesterday, explaining that he believes that light, materials and atmosphere are the most important aspects of architecture..."

 "I'm a passionate architect and I think it's a beautiful profession."
Peter Zumthor, working in his office in Haldenstein, Switzerland, in 2000,

"For me, they should all have atmosphere,"

Gio Ponti and his work

"Love architecture, be it ancient or modern. 
Love it for its fantastic, adventurous and solemn creations; for its inventions; for the abstract, allusive and figurative forms that enchant our spirit and enrapture our thoughts. 

Love architecture, the stage and support of our lives."

The Atmosphere in HOTEL PARCO DEI PRINCIPI in Sorrento by GIÒ PONTI

"Born in Milan and trained as an architect, the prolific Ponti designed buildings, interiors, furniture, and lighting, and founded the magazine Domus. Ponti's sensibility is on full view at the Parco dei Principi where he designed every detail of the hotel, from the furniture to the lighting to the 30 different geometric-patterned blue and white tiles used in different combinations throughout the interior. Better still, the whole color scheme is in shades of blue and white....Read more..
