Happy 2nd birthday

Today, Panfilocastaldi turns 2. We have survived another full year of blogging, despite some significant personal upheavals. As new parents, getting out into the worlds of architecture and art is proving more difficult but not, with determined effort, impossible. Looking back, many of the posts remind us of enriching experiences and conversations. It is always... Continue Reading →

Today, Panfilocastaldi turns 1. We have survived a full year of blogging. We continue to adhere to our manifesto of thrusting ourselves out into the worlds of architecture, art and photography, and we continue to critically discuss our experiences.
