Erice - beyond system
The medieval town of Erice is constituted by a viscous urban mass that has been gradually optimized in relation to light, materials or walking distances. The single elements are hardly dissociable, merging instead into a continuously varying multiplicity of courts and streets defining solids as searched-for ideals. The project extrapolates the town's geometry constrained by city walls and topography into a distorted field where the density of the original is simulated with a random generator in several layers, giving it a complex spatiality, where neither solids nor voids take over in importance.
