Lecture summary

By Antonino Cardillo



In his design for the Off Club, Antonino Cardillo continues the investigation of archetypes (primordial images) that he began with his design for the House of Dust:


I. Vision. The intuitive function
From the psychical subject to the physical object


II. Construction. Language as the “House of Being”
Toward an etymology of architectural words


III. Individuation. The afterward detection
The temple in the sacred precinct

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. — Carl Gustav Jung, ‘On the Nature of the Psyche’, in Collected Works, vol. 8, 1947/1954, p. 231.
