Contemporary Organic Architecture
“ I say that now is time for architecture to recognize its nature, to know that comes from life and its aim is the life as today we leave, therefore to be an intensely human thing.” By this sentence Frank Lloyd Wright, founder of organic architecture, grasps the principal nucleus of this new way to make architecture. No more spaces, architectural forms, functions, decorations, untied from the life, but all tightly connected to it; a very full life, natural and spiritual, individual and participating to civilization. Organic architecture foundations is the dignity of the human being, a free creative, responsible man that must have a human scale space that helps him to grow, to show him his potentiality. The classic architecture ( Egyptian, Greek, Azteca, and so on…) is deficit, exalting an abstract concept about a man subordinate to an imposed absolute power, religious and political. Moreover almost all celebrating past architecture has searched for disintegrate the individual as a person, affecting him with giantism, opulence, exceeding wealth. Organic architecture overturns this scenery: the man as individual person, unique and precious, so that announced in the Gospel, returns in the centre of architecture. “ Architecture doesn’t need monumentality, the only one is natural beauty “ said Wright. It is for this man, free, conscious, democratic, creative, that today we must project respecting his nature and spirituality. For these reasons organic architecture develops itself from inside to outside, from the interior life that flows in space to outdoor. Organic architecture and the environment are the same thing. Organic architecture as respects the interior life as respects the nature surrounding architectural work, it talks to nature by means a continuous space inside/outside, enriching the genius loci. The architectural organic work shares the place where it stands, it’s not added to the site, but integrated to nature. The organic architectural work is a real organism, where the part and the all live together, in a systemic harmonic and vital way. Harmony is essential, the work is always a harmonic composition between the parts and the surrounding nature. Organic architecture is harmony, beauty, joyful expression of life, serene, safety-catch, romantic, it stimulates the mind and imagination in a creative way. Organic architecture is without style, unique and unrepeatable, because is tied to the man, to the site and to the time, three variables that never repeat themselves. So organic architecture is not a style, but a new world vision that respects the man and the nature in the deeper essence. In that way, organic architecture puts itself like foundation and mother of all architectures respecting the nature: sustainable architecture, arcology, alternative architecture, ecology architecture, bioarchitecture and so on…). Organic architecture is the root of all these new “naturalistic” tendencies; the true background philosophy that ties the respect of nature to the individual growth as a person and part of civilization; it helps to avoid compartments that distort architecture from its deep essence like positive leaven for human civilization. Frank Lloyd Wright first, Bruce Goff after, have been two architects that placed the basic principles of organic architecture, a creative and unrepeatable architecture that has no style but only poetical common generational processes. As real organic architecture is always changing considering the man, the site and the time, today in a full renewal of civilization whether in the knowledge field or in the social and technological field, we need a “contemporary organic architecture” adequate to the new man’s conditions, to the new sensitiveness, still conserving its principles and fundamental values. The true organic architecture follows the life’s mutations and doesn’t let itself crystallize in a style. Wright was a prophet of a new architecture in his time. Today, the world is different and we must create a contemporary organic architecture for our life. Some people, wrongly, believed that organic architecture evolved into deconstructivism: they were in error! Organic architecture has no style but answers for always different needs of man, of environment and of time with its principles of life without to repeat itself. At present in the United States the new organic architecture has a reference point in Friends of Kebyar , a without profit association of organic architects that had known the masters, Wright and Goff, and their buildings follow the principles of the masters; among them: James W. Schildroth , Joseph H. Wythe , Kendrick B. Kellogg , Robert H. Oshatz , Bart Prince . Now in Australia we have organic and ecological architecture of Glenn Murcutt, Pritzker Price of architecture 2002, indicator of a new general trend. In Italy the organic architecture was announced after the 2° World War by Bruno Zevi and had as great representatives Carlo Scarpa , Luigi Pellegrin and, more recently, Aldo Loris Rossi. Particularly Aldo Loris Rossi develops organic architecture principles with regard to historical artistical vanguards and also in a megastructural vision like Paolo Soleri. At present in Italy, Sarno Architetti office, founded by two brothers, Carmine and Carlo Sarno, promotes contemporary organic architecture respecting faithfully the principles and the values tied to the life’s goodness fixed in the true organic architecture, in syntony to Friends of Kebyar . Finally, contemporary organic architecture means renewal of organic architecture of masters founders Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff; working towards a new man, a new environment, a new contemporary tyme.
