Istituto Luce Cinecittà

ROME, Italy—11 May 2019

On behalf of Istituto Luce Cinecittà, Diego Grammatico and Giovanna Marinelli invite Cardillo to talk as part of Rome Video Game Lab.


From Zak McKracken to House of Dust

Architecture is a story that constructs reality. It is not just something physical but contains metaphors and surreal elements. In video games, architecture is so powerful that it even distorts the idea that the user has of reality. Architecture and video games are projections of what we want to see of an abstract ideal.

Mitte/Rand Salon 01 mit Antonino Cardillo

Antonino Cardillo ist ein Architekt mit außergewöhnlichem Werdegang und nicht weniger kontroversen Positionen. Über seine Arbeit spannt sich ein Nebel, der Vergangenheit und Gegenwart, Wahrheit und Illusion verschwimmen lässt. Am Dienstag, dem 21.11.2017, sprach Tim Berge beim ersten Mitte/Rand Salon in die Marienstraße mit Antonino über seine Anfänge, seine Haltung zur Antike und die Sexualität der Architektur.

AA School

LONDON, UK—20 Nov 2013

By invitation of Alexandra Savtchenko-Belskaia, Cardillo talks as part of the ‘Intermediate Unit 2’.


House of Dust

Hot on the heels of our Sicilian love affair, Intermediate 2 presents an evening to transport us once more to the stone island's spectacular sensuous atmosphere and rich cultural syncretism. The House of Dust takes its influences from primordial caverns, renaissance grottos and nymphaea at Rome's Villa Doria Pamphilj. Materiality, colour and light evoke an archaeological architecture—a ceiling of rough plaster is the colour of bare earth and the palest pink light evokes dawn and flowers—the colour of beauty that dies. The House breathes light through spaces in a balanced sequence of compression and dilations.—Alexandra Savtchenko-Belskaia
