$23,490per item

About

TEKTON comes from the Greek and means "builder or build", which together with the word Arch (meaning Boss, authority or more than), together form the word Architect and / or Architecture (Arch-tekton), Architect means practically: boss of construction. The word Tekton has to do also with Techné which means: "creation, invention or art" and from which comes Technique and Tectonic. Hence, Tekton relates us to different meanings: construction, creation, invention or technique. Tekton is also associated with the Indo-European word "Teks" which means "Weaving or Manufacturing". Mario Botta (April 1, 1943) is an architect born in Mendrisio, canton of Ticino, Switzerland. He designed his first house at 16 years of age, although it is unknown if it was built. He studied at the Artistic Lyceum in Milan and at the University Institute of Architettura (IUAV) in Venice where he graduated with Carlo Scarpa. His ideas were influenced by Le Corbusier, and Louis Kahn with whom he had the opportunity to work during his stay in Venice. He opened his own office in 1970 in Lugano. His style is strong and geometric, with hollow symmetrical plants to allow passage. Its buildings combine heavy walls (concrete, brick) with light steel and glass structures. Its buildings are spread throughout Switzerland, particularly in the Canton of Ticino. He is also the author of the Médiathèque de Villeurbanne (1988), the Évry Cathedral (1995) and the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco (1995). Among his first works stands out the house Rotonda in Stabio, cylindrical and built with bricks of concrete, of very compact aspect. A large slit separates the cylinder and allows the passage of light to the deepest part of it. Since 1996 he teaches at the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio of the University of Italian Switzerland.
