Perret & Piacentini. A Comparative Analysis of Two Parallel Architectures

José Ramón Alonso Pereira

Abstract

It is very common to understand the home of the masters of architecture as a manifesto of their respective architectures. Nevertheless, those houses are usually identified with single-family models, relegating collective examples. Only the apartment-atelier that Le Corbusier elevated in Porte Molitor (1930-33) is saved from this oblivion. However, there are at the same time two other examples of house-studio by two masters of the moment: Perret and Piacentini. Both are parallel in their vital dynamics and in their programs: The Roman house-studio of Piacentini in Lungotevere Tor di Nona (1929-31) and the Parisian building of Raynouard (1929-33), where Perret established his home and his agence (office). The coincidence of theme and the parallelism of place facilitate the comparative analysis in a common historical time, with their debates between tradition and vanguard.
