This book defines another theoretical position in architecture, a radically different position from those that marked the last century and the beginnings of this new millennium. This theory is illustrated through the work of gambardellarchitetti based on the art of accommodation. Architecture must be comfortable, fill the eyes through a remarkable iconic power, it must avoid causing damage to the environment and for this it must not produce waste and building waste by transforming and not adding other materials, it must seek a beauty based on the use of common forms and subjects combined in an uncommon way. It must accept imprecision and must not prefigure the future but extend the present time by collecting the suggestions of memory. Gambardellarchitetti tries, then, in this volume to outline the uncertain traces of another planet Earth built by thirty-five years of imperfect architecture.

gambardellarchitetti is an architectural atelier founded by Cherubino Gambardella in the late eighties which, over time, has been transformed into a structure inspired by the theoretical, drawing, and imaginative production of its founder. It is based in Naples but also has an office in Milan. It is a laboratory of ideas, thoughts and projects of architecture and design from small to large scale. The office has created many projects of different typology, size and function with large, small and sometimes even very small budgets all marked by a line of research that has evolved in these decades aiming at a strong recognition and on spaces that always arouse an emotion in those who lives. The group, headed by Simona Ottieri Gambardella, has a flexible organization and makes use of different skills, from great consultants of recognized professionalism to promising designers to young and enthusiastic interns.
