Footnotes

“Some buildings are built for people,” Märkli says, describing this windowless, grey concrete box, still marked with the imprints of construction. “This is built for sculptures. There is just concrete, no electricity, no insulation, just space.” La Congiunta is a container for art, and externally it’s rough, difficult and inaccessible. The building has the qualities of both a neglected Greek ruin and a monument, making literal his interest in ancient history.” ➡︎
