The BARACCHE project is a suggestion by the instantaneous architectures at the edge of the road and by bric-à-brac constructions. BARACCHE as a souvenir of the ring road, ephemeral plastic buildings to demolish, corrugated iron roofs and industrial irons. Volumes affected by inaccurate choices, not taken, all to involuntary, random shapes, never equal to themselves. Unique pieces by necessity, grotesque and fascinating. A shock of brutalism and ruins of the commercial mall, without possibility of choice but only acceptance of its own cliché. BARACCHE is the semantic reduction of a house to a caricature.
