Scope and Content

The project series documents "Case Conquistate Dal Verde," a series of photographs of buildings covered in vegetation, and "conquered" by nature. The photographs were "taken at different times but grouped under a single date to indicate the author's interest in the subject in that period, Pettena returns to the theme of the architecture not made by architects that had characterized the work he had done in the United States [...]" [1]

The project series contains a sketch showing a house conquered by vegetation and the photographs series.
