IL RIGO QUARTER
1978 – 1982, PERUGIA, ITALY
This project developed the idea of ‘flexible’ architecture by creating houses that could be reshaped and adapted according to their inhabitants’ needs.
Each house is six metres high and six metres wide, with floor space ranging from 50 to 120 sq m.
The internal volume of each house can be increased by moving the glazed front wall outwards, and at first floor level by inserting a new floor into the double-height living space, supported on lightweight metal trusses.
