To design on a river-bank, is always perceived a privilege by architects!

Consequently, thorough and yet unconstrained investigation should prepare the final solution. The attached drawings show part of such drawn inquiry.

While working with the first project, the introductory drawing, completely incorrectly, called up the memory of the Abbey in Melk, Austria, as one of the most inspiring architectural complex ever built by a river. The rigor of the functional aspect of the monastery, and the flamboyance of the Church is unsurpassable in our time!
