Between Memory and Reason: The Brick Wall

Architecture responds to the social dynamics of uses, articulating the nature of the environment in which it is projected with the complex nature of human needs. In the present case, the culture handed down is based on the tectonic ingenuity and creativity of the designer who interprets and merges the concept of resistance (effective) with that of enveloping (affective) in the case study. The embrici we find on the domes of Vietri (Italy), or the architectural completion elements mentioned in this article, are examples that demonstrate the adaptation of brickwork. The result is an unprecedented correlation between place, form and matter. describes the path from the survey of the Solimene factory façade to the governing of some acquired parameters. The pair of Vitruvian memory decor/distributio proposes a methodological approach for the geometric-compositional reconfiguration of the same typological family of brick infill walls. In continuity with the development of local tradition, the modification of the wall texture is managed to meet local needs and provide customised functional and aesthetic solutions.
