FRANCO RAGGI REISSUES HIS FAMOUS 1976 “RED TENT” FOR VGO ASSOCIATES, BLACK AND WHITE FOR THE FIRST TIME. THE TENT IS BUILT WITH LITTLE. PRINTED SHEETS AND BAMBOO CANES. AN ARCHITECTURE THAT SWAYS WITH THE WIND. ELEGANT AND FRAGILE. A TEMPLE THAT BECOES LIGHT AND LOOKS AT THE STARS. A DWELLING IN WHICH TO STOP THAT MAKES US REFLECT ON THE EFFICIENT, ECONOMIC AND EASILY TRANSPORTABLE TEMPORARNSS. WE ARE NOMADS, WORLD TRAVELERS IN SEARCH OF OURSELVES. "A LOGICAL INTERSECTION BETWEEN THE SACRED AND THE EPHEMERAL; AN OBJECT IN BALANCE BETWEEN THE "STABLE" IMAGE OF THE TEMPLE AND THE TEMPORARY PERFECTION OF THE NOMADS' TENT; THE MOST IMMEDIATE AND UNIVERSAL ARCHITECTURE WITH THE GRAPHIC CHARACTERS OF THE "SUPERSTAR" OF ARCHITECTURE. " FRANCO RAGGI 1975-2021
