Mario Merz

Year and place of birth: 1925, Milan, Italy Location: +2003, Turin, Italy

Mario Merz is best known for his igloos in organic materials. The igloo symbolises the archetypal house. It is the most elementary inhabitable structure, a temporary construction in a natural material, associated with the nomadic life and able to be built in no time at all. Merz saw the igloo as the ideal house.
