Fab 40: StudioNOWA
Based in Caltagirone, Sicily, StudioNOWA operate on the intersection between art and installation, creating a mixture of conventional building and event-specific installations. Their Piccola Perrera, finished in 2007, refurbished a farmhouse for ’agritourism’, stripping the walls and windows back to create a monolithic architectural presence in the raw landscape.
