The Game of Architecture (2013)
The project series documents "The Game of Architecture", a drawing realized in 2013. The drawing is of triangular-shaped structures made of bricks standing in a desert. This drawing is a reinterpretation of a previous project by Pettena "Situazioni Competitive" in 1971. "Here architecture, albeit with the same characteristic of competitiveness, becomes indistinct, confused, no longer the leading actor, at the mercy of an unknown context (a desert? the nature of an alien planet?) which, threatening to overwhelm it, seems to nullify its every need and characteristic." 
The project series contains a drawing for the 2013 edition and the 2018 version, which is a digital photograph modified to show the architectural construction standing in rough water.
