Description Change this

Baldi House can be considered, as explained in modern architecture Inhibitions, the manifesto of the "listening poetic" by Paolo Portoghesi. Next to the house are the remains of a Roman tomb, which over the centuries had made similar to a "trunk surrounded by a giant plant roots". Baldi house originates from the inverted architecture process that leads to ruin. House Baldi walls are opened under the pressure of the wind, creating a deflected geometry and windows become agreement between the surfaces, through which we grasp the landscape.
