Methodical research of the most exact proportion
“…balance on a tight rope…the imagination does not let the liquid overflow when it has filled the glass. Why are there so many ugly objects in the world? Because the proportions are not right and the inventions are not in the hands of the experts.
The Auriga at Delphi keeps them neither too tight nor too loose.”
(Leonardo Sinisgalli for the review of GRAPHIS- 1968)
The flow of images in the film/text presents an ideal bridge between the past and the future of our works: in different architectural environments and problem or detail dimensions (either big or pretty small) we have always been looking for the application of the same principles, principles that tight us firmly together beyond individual interests or experiments in the common love for buildings in the motto “VIVERE PER COSTRUIRE”.
Our firm was established in 1949 by Eugenio Gerli, who was joined in the 70's by his 2 sons Enrico and Guido. The main activity has always been architectural projects and industrial design. In the construction field our firm has been involved in the design of new buildings such as private villas, golf club houses, offices, banks and in the architectural project and decoration of prestigious stores not only in Europe but also in Asia and USA focusing in tailor made solutions. Our activity also included the renovation of historical buildings in Italy .
