Architecture has very often been a representation of the cosmos, not only because with its known laws it relates directly to the scale of the universe and bestows geometries and configurations on the shape of space, but also because it keeps the starry sky beneath a ceiling, or inside a sphere. Since architecture is involved with space it is the ideal art with which to build worlds: from Egyptian temples to medieval chapels, from gardens as symbolic references to Eden, to mazes on a complex stone floor.

Corrado Di Domenico (Naples 1972) is an architect and professor of Architectural Design at the Department of Architecture, University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli” (former SUN). A firm believer in the broader, cognitive nature of architecture, the main thrust of his research – and teaching activities – involves design competitions and participating in exhibitions which have earned him numerous awards and prizes. His projects were exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 1996, 2000, 2004 and, at the Mediterranean Landscape Biennale, in 2005. He has published several books including “Il luogo e la stanza” (The place and the room), ESI, Naples 2007, “Piattaforme” (Platforms), Alinea, Florence 2007, and “Il punto di vista immaginario” (The imaginary point of view), Il Melangolo, Genoa 2012.
