A “resistant” architecture in a hostile territory
The architecture, for its disciplinary status, has to induce in reality a possible modification in order toovercome its contradictions, and it can do it in a hostile territory only by resisting to its progressivedissolution, to the precariousness of its settlement structures and by founding a plausible orderextracted from the “things themselves”, from the measures, from the heritage that those lands havehad. From this premise the project of a multifunctional hall1 in the town of Castel Volturno moves: ithas recently been listed as a newly selected works in the National Census of Italian architecture of thelate twentieth century, promoted by the DGAAP of MiBACT. The common reason for the variouspossibilities of use determined the typological asset of the hall-type building, a Halle, or an undividedspace, “cleared away": an archetypal form capable of reifying this thematic assumption. The adoptionof the hall-type follows the theme of the introduction of an element of order, in an eponymousterritory of the Junk-city, of a new possible centrality capable of establishing general morphologicalrelationships and of reversing the process of diffusion / dispersion of the rural / urban landscape ofCastel Volturno, emblematic of the sprawl and phenomena of the scattered contemporary city. It is a"resistant" architecture because it tries to oppose such a wide dissolution of form.
