Ugo La Pietra, Italian (1938 - )

Italian artist, architect and designer, born in 1938, Ugo La Pietra was a major player on the radical artistic scene of the 1960s and 1970s. Theoretician, magazine man, member of Global Toolsfrom 1973 onward and a participant in many exhibitions, La Pietra contributed to the emergence of “counter-architecture” on an international. He challenges the practice, foundations andideologyof architecture and in the process, hijacks architecture’s original alphabet, staging his own body in the urban landscape to question it and us and thereby reveal the reality of the world to us.
In the early 1960s, he developed an interest in the experimentation of Viennese architects (Hollein, Pichler, etc.). In his exploration of the theme of "synesthesia of the arts", he worked to decompartmentalize forms, through painting, drawing, or architecture, whose expressionist forms (inspired by Kiesler) clashed with their urban environment.

In 1967, his criticism of functionalism and consumer values, which he held were "asphyxiating" the individual, took on an increasingly radical tone. He called his program the "unbalancing system", in which his "immersions" come across as micro-spaces of rupture, which function symbolically to activate pathways to liberation while redefining the "artwork/viewer" relationship.

In the 1970s, when most radical architects were fleeing reality to take refuge in utopian visions, urban territory became the sole focus of La Pietra’s experimentation. His "deciphering tools" in hand, he delves into its tiniest nooks and crannies of the city in search of "degrees of liberty". Utilizing photography, film, drawing and photomontage to put together his reportages, he methodically hijacks and reinterprets the uses and codes of the urban landscape, proving through his interventions that "living in the city means being at home everywhere".

Noah’s Ark. Our new collection "Animals".

Posted on April 10, 2013 by Peter Gruenbaum

  • Noah gets the word: build an ark in seven days. His sons cut the necessary trees in three days, and much furious sawing and hammering follows. But there's no rest, as they need to round up all the animals. Noah boards the animals, then his sons, their wives, and his wife (who packed a ferocious picnic). The rains and flood begin. The animals soon develop cabin fever and get restless, but Mrs. Noah has the answer: "Music has charms to soothe the savage beast." His sons find instruments and begin playing; everyone dances. But Harry the hippo dances with everyone but his wife; Noah goes to her, and while she tells him not to mention Harry's name, Noah convinces her that Harry is thinking only of her. The rains end; Noah sends a dove out who brings back an olive branch. They land on Mount Ararat and disembark.
  • Watch the new collection "Animals" and find some animals from the Noah's ark.
