Antonio Scarponi is an architect. He draws like an artist, thinks like a designer and dreams like a poet. Design is, for him, a form of knowledge. He conceives and designs forms of concrete narratives which he calls devices (www.conceptualdevices.com). He studied architecture at the Cooper Union, New York, and at IUAV, Venice, from which he holds a Ph.D. in urban design. He is the author of ELIOOO, an instruction manual about "how to go to Ikea and grow food in your apartment" (www.eliooo.com).

Campo Libero


The Innocent House

Campo Libero


The Innocent House
Campo Libero is a mobile and off-grid rural pavilion for the reactivation of lands confiscated from the mafia in the south of Italy.

Campo Libero (the innocent house) is a prototype for an off-grid mobile housing unit. It was originally conceived as a device for the reactivation of the lands confiscated from the mafia in the south of Italy for the Italian organization Libera (http://liberaterra.it/it) and commissioned for the Italian Pavilion by the Venice Architecture Biennale 2016. Libera is an organization that promotes legality by providing legal support for people who denounce illegal activities and helping refugees working with no rights in the tomato fields in the south of Italy.

To meet its functional brief, Campo Libero is designed to extend its volume, thanks to an integrated scaffolding structure that provide access to the roof and allows a second story to be built. Campo Libero overlooks the land, reclaiming the archaic lyricism of the southern countryside. Campo Libero is a small project. But it is designed to imagine a soft and reversible way to imagine our built environment.
