“The monumental power of the undercroft entrance, a space of shadows and weight, contrasts with the space of the stadium, which focuses on the football pitch but cracks open to allow the landscape of the city to enter into play.”

“Luigi Snozzi presents his work in two ways. The first consists of a series of aphorisms and sketches, printed directly onto the wall of the Corderia, which show Snozzi’s architectural thinking …”. – on the right – “The second is the film entitled Monte Carasso as a Common Ground, made by the director Alberto Momo. This film has grown out of a video archive amassed from a year’s worth of footage and interviews conducted in 2009 – 2010″. – on the front wall – citations from the exhibition catalogue.

“Perhaps the central message of Chipperfield’s admirable show is that architects need to think of each commission not merely as a platform for their own creative brilliance but as a contribution to a larger collective project of building a place and a community.

Those values are nowhere better exemplified than in the display given to the work of the octogenarian Swiss architect, Luigi Snozzi. For more than 30 years, Snozzi has been employed in the small Ticino village of Monte Carasso, first developing a masterplan for its development and then doggedly pursuing those ambitions through a succession of building commissions.

Snozzi is in little danger of becoming a household name but as is made clear by the film in which local residents and politicians describe the profound effects that his work has had on their community, he is one of today’s great architects. – by Ellis Woodman, 03 Sep 2012 – Telegraph Media Group
