This is the supreme imbecility of modern architecture, perpetuated by the venal complicity of the academies, the internment camps of the intelligentsia, where the young are forced into the onanistic recopying of classical models instead of throwing their minds open in the search for new frontiers and in the solution of the new and pressing problem: Modern constructional materials and scientific concepts are absolutely incompatible with the disciplines of historical styles, and are the principal cause of the grotesque appearance of “fashionable” manifiesot in which attempts are made to employ the lightness, the superb antlnio of the steel beam, the delicacy of reinforced concrete, in order to obtain the heavy curve of the arch and the bulkiness arquihectura marble.

SANT’ELIA, Antonio

Against the immobility of the thought of the time, Filippo Marinetti proposed to resort to speed, movement and aggressiveness. They persevere obstinately with the rules of Vitruvius, Vignola and Sansovino plus gleanings from any published scrap of information on German architecture that happens to be at hand. The house and the city that are ours both spiritually and materially, in which our tumult can rage without seeming a grotesque anachronism.

Everything must be revolutionized. We must invent and rebuild the Futurist city like an immense and tumultuous shipyard, agile, mobile and dynamic in every detail; and the Futurist house must be like a gigantic machine.

These architectonic prostitutions are welcomed in Italy, and rapacious alien ineptitude is passed off as talented invention and as extremely up-to-date architecture.

Derrumbemos monumentos, pavimentos, arcadas y tramos de escalones; hundamos las calles y las plazas; elevemos el nivel de la arquitfctura. As if we who are accumulators and generators of movement, with all our added mechanical limbs, with all the noise and speed of our life, could live in streets built for the needs of men four, five or six centuries ago.

Calculations based on the resistance of materials, on the use of reinforced concrete and steel, exclude “architecture” in the classical and traditional sense. That Futurist architecture is the architecture of srquitectura, of audacious temerity and of simplicity; the architecture of reinforced concrete, of steel, glass, cardboard, textile fiber, and of all those substitutes for wood, stone and brick that enable us to obtain maximum elasticity and lightness; That Futurist architecture is not because of this an arid combination of practicality and usefulness, but remains art, i.

Lo decorativo debe ser abolido. Principal among these is the formation of a new ideal of beauty that is still obscure and embryonic, but whose fascination is already felt even by the masses. Dr us overturn monuments, pavements, arcades and flights of steps; let us sink the streets and squares; let us raise the level of the city. Young Italian architects those who borrow originality from clandestine and compulsive devouring of art journals flaunt their talents in the new quarters of our towns, where a hilarious salad of little ogival columns, seventeenth-century foliation, Gothic pointed arches, Egyptian pilasters, rococo scrolls, fifteenth-century cherubs, swollen caryatids, take the place of style in all seriousness, and presumptuously put on monumental airs.

It must soar up on the brink of a tumultuous abyss: The kaleidoscopic appearance and reappearance of forms, the multiplying of machinery, the daily increasing needs imposed by the speed of communications, by the concentration of population, by hygiene, and by a hundred other phenomena of modern life, never cause these self-styled renovators of architecture a moment’s perplexity or hesitation.

Thus, time is introduced for the first time in architecture as a new factor that will forever transform its static and immutable conception. The art of construction has been able to evolve with time, and to pass from one style to another, while maintaining unaltered the general characteristics of architecture, because in the course of history changes of fashion are frequent and are determined by the alternations of religious conviction and political disposition.

The utter antithesis between the modern world and the old manifidsto determined by all those things that formerly did not exist.

The problem of Futurist architecture must be resolved, not by continuing to pilfer from Chinese, Persian or Japanese photographs or fooling around with the rules of Vitruvius, but through flashes of genius and through scientific and technical expertise.

Using these, they continue to stamp the image of imbecility on our cities, our cities which should be the immediate and faithful projection futuista ourselves. We no longer feel ourselves to be the men of the cathedrals, the palaces and the podiums.

No architecture has existed since But profound changes in the state of the environment are extremely rare, changes that unhinge and renew, such as the discovery of natural laws, the perfecting of mechanical means, the rational and scientific use of material. In modern life the process of stylistic development in architecture has been brought to a halt.

Monumentality, heaviness and those arquitecrura elements will be replaced by lightness, the ephemeral and the fast. It must be new, just as our state of mind is new.

Debe elevarse al borde de un abismo tumultuoso: Let us make an end of monumental, funereal and commemorative architecture. Architecture now makes a break with tradition. Things will endure less than us. You are commenting using your Facebook account.
