Azione urbana di LABINT’11 in Piazza Leonardo da Vinci a Milano

Grete Prytz and Planetveien 12

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

Grete Prytz in her house in Planetveien 12, Oslo (pic by Nina Ruud)

Here is a Planetveien 12 gallery even you miss here the presence of life, for a different sequence look here.

Grete died the 25th of September 2010 at the age of 93: always working with the same energy and lively creativity! I met her the first time in 1994 and I was shocked by her beauty and cleverness: I was with Christian Norberg-Schulz who introduced me to one of the most outstanding woman I have ever met. From that visit, I have always tried to pass by her in the house she was leaving since the 1955: Planetveien 12! The house was designed by her husband Arne Korsmo (a master of  Norwegian second generation of Modern architects) between 1952 and 1955, just before he left for Trondheim, for him and her wife Grete. She spent all her life there, respecting the initial utopia of the house programme: a place for life & work. This has been Planetveien 12 until she left for ever!

Catalogue by Quodlibet

“Non è un caso che come per Lewerentz, anche per Fehn prima e per Knut Hjeltnes, Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk, Jan Olav Jensen & Børre Skodvin poi, per descrivere l’essenza del loro lavoro si sia ricorsi alla metafora della investigazione della materia e delle regole della “messa-in-opera” quale cifra connotativa. L’imprevedibile e l’inatteso, come paradigma del fare, intesi non nella accezione di ricerca dello stravagante, del pirotecnico, dell’eccentrico, quanto all’opposto della investigazione e della perlustrazione di strade alternative alla regola del mercato o alla consuetudine costruttiva, sono gli atteggiamenti che da soli sono in grado di eliminare tutte le sollecitazioni al riproporre stilemi tanto consolidati quanti vuoti di senso”.
