As already steated
in the Preface, Volume 1, the Reader will notice a certain degree of “unfinished" in the illustration of the 36 works by Luigi
Pellegrin of relevant interest. Such unfinished is not due to the laziness of the Author, but is intentional. In fact, from 2012 to the present I would have had plenty of time to
complete rather than expand the content of the Systemic Habitats website.
This is intentional for two simple reasons: both because the
unfinished hints at open patterns, new possibilities, at what is alive and therefore present, both because Pellegrin's architecture is never reducible to a cliché. And so the unfinished is fully
pertinent. So: unfinished as infinite, unfinished as alive, present, an open construction site, still capable of generating something new and unknown to us.
