Una bella intervista con l'archietetto israelo-canadese-americano Moshe Safdie sul significato della casa. "I put it to him that, even so, he was a long, long way from one of the founding fathers of modern architecture, Le Corbusier, and his credo, “A house is a machine for living in.”
“A house is not a machine!” he exclaimed. “It’s something else for living—but not a machine.”
“What is it?”
“That’s a good question.”
He thought for a few moments. “You know, there’s a good Hebrew word for it, mishkan.”He explained that in biblical terms it means a sacred place, a tabernacle, divinely inspired. (And there are rules laid down for building it.) But, for Moshe Safdie, the secular meaning of mishkan is a house—a sublime refuge midst the clamor of the world". vanityfair.
