The making of Rome's Off Club

Cardillo's talk at RCA

Royal College of Art

RCA School of Architecture

On behalf of the students of the RCA School of Architecture Interior Design Programme, Yara Boulos and Riccardo Rizzetto invite Cardillo to talk as part of the talk series Inside/Out. In his design for the Off Club, Cardillo continues the investigation of primordial images that he began with his design for the House of Dust.

Cardillo's lecture summary

Vision. The intuitive function: from a psychical subject to a physical object
Construction. Language as the House of Being: towards an etymology of architectural words
Individuation. Afterwards detection: a temple inside a sacred fence

“Archetypes, so far as we can observe and experience them at all, manifest themselves only through their ability to organise images and ideas, and this is always an unconscious process which cannot be detected until afterwards.” — C.G. Jung, Collected Works, vol. 8, “On the Nature of the Psyche” (1947/1954), ¶440, pp.230-232.
