“Words,” wrote Gabriele Mastrigli, “can only be an immense text/territory… that refuses to ‘put things in their places.’”

Parole (“words”) remains an exception to the prevailing norm in web-based architecture writing that insists on writing for the digital page as if it were a sheet of paper. I recently had a discussion with two of the site’s creators, Andrea Balestrero and Fabrizio Gallanti.

  1. you have to add the MAP to it...
    the "virtual architecture" for parole is also based on the insight that it's impossible to create a complete map of contemporary (urban) conditions. when i wrote it in early 2000, i wanted to create a possibility for virtually infinite relations and proximity of concepts. call it multi-dimensional...

    it's bricks and mortar (aka "code") is influenced by ideas of Borghes, books by Pynchon, later Sterne, his problem in Tristram Shandy, where writing a diary of a day takes him a year, which means the book can only finish in infinity...

    anyway, that was a fruitful resonance (in) between A12's research and my interest in readable landscapes, textures, maps of consciousness... a pity that it stopped at some point.

    kind regards, udo
