Solimene Ceramic’s Factory by Paolo Soleri

Somehow, I just stumbled upon this incredible looking building by Paolo Soleri that he built for the Ceramica Artistica Solimene factory, in Vietri sul Mare. A town in the province of Salerno, in the Campania region of southern Italy very popular as being a convenient place to start the Amalfi Coast drive. I was looking into Thomas Heatherwick‘s works following the post on the new Google HQ and one thing led to another and this gem came up… Lovely! Reminds me a lot of Gaudi, Inside as well with the tree like structure which is amazing just as the exterior.

This video by Franco Di Capua get’s you in there pretty good, showcasing the beautiful workplace mess inside as well 😉

This building went into my Architecture board on Pinterest. I invite you to follow me and see what other great things I’ve curated there for some time now.

@ronenbekerman  This is Factory not the same,  it lack the tectonics , it’s to self-conscious , like an architecture Selfie,  the ceramic factory is sincere made when there was not Arch Selfies
