Abstract

In the desire to go further, to violate the horizon of reality and go in search of other worlds in which the gaze accepts and makes its own a deformed, analytical, complex vision in which ordinary and extraordinary phenomena coexist. Nothing more than an infinite location in which thought becomes unconditional, without borders, attentive to the urban dimension in its most complex form. Thus, fantastic images emerge, extremizations of the present, future perspectives of a "possible necessary" in which a dominant complexity thrives that cannot be governed and to which an answer is offered by interpreting the existing in a surprising form, staging the reasons and values that underlies. We try to go beyond the obvious and see through what reality hides; we want to go beyond the shared rules, to understand the plots of the invisible and recreate others, unexpected but still linked to reality and conquered by the desire to investigate, to seek presumable and only imagined urban perspectives. In this way, unprecedented aspects are understood driven by the fantastic, by dissatisfaction remove the banal, the usual and assume an attitude of insubordination, a different point of view capable of capturing the complexity of reality in its occurrence. The wonder becomes right to be able to investigate and discover otherwise invisible places, using perceptions, signs and colors that in the unexpected become architectural substance, real compositional words and not of worlds extraneous to our life but of a world of which, of our life, the meanings are revealed. Other perspectives of the urban take shape, and other possibilities of the existing, escaped from the present and projected into the future that design thinking reinterprets through the imagination now used as a means of knowledge and without which only a senseless and amorphous mass of elements would be formulated. devoid of any link with the existing. So, starting from the assumption that everything begins with reality, we advance in this study with imaginative features and evaluate the visions of a fantastic, provocative, at times paradoxical architecture, nothing more than extremism of reality as if it were a re-elaboration of the mind that in the critical-objective reflection finds another future, possible architectural form and spatial dimension. From the analysis and knowledge of fantasy places, the transformations of reality and its possible future developments are therefore discussed and, through the imagination, ideal cities of a fantastic and dystopian universe are outlined, whose diversified architectures become material for learning and communicating characteristics of an urban-architectural real as a manifesto of an imaginative world shattered and reassembled through rules that have escaped from common logic and entered the field of architectural design perception and experimentation.
