No es ningún secreto que estamos ante una parcial estructura geométrica, pero cuando nos enteramos de que también es capaz de girar 360 grados completos, sabíamos que queríamos más. Por suerte para nosotros este vino en la forma de una película atractiva de 17 minutos por Marcel Meili y Christoph Schaub que resume la historia de la casa modernista de rotación "Il Girasole" construida en la ladera del valle del Po en el norte de Italia.

It's no secret that we're partial to a good geometrical structure but when we heard that it is also able to rotate a full 360 degrees, we knew we wanted more. Luckily for us this came in the form of a compelling 17-minute film by Marcel Meili and Christoph Schaub which unviels the story of 'Il Girasole' the rotating modernist house built into the Po Valley hillside in northern Italy.

Impulsado por un motor eléctrico, Il Girasole es capaz de girar 360 grados sobre su base circular, muy radical en la forma en que todos los componentes de la casa (incluido su patio) forman parte de la esfera de rotación de la estructura. La película es simple y directa, la yuxtaposición de la ingeniería de detalles de la imponente casa, la historia íntima con recreaciones del arquitecto y su esposa, la interacción con el espacio y todo narrado a través de la hija del arquitecto.

Powered by an electric motor, Il Girasole is able to rotate a full 360 degrees on its circular base, highly radical in the way that all the components of the house (including its courtyard) are part of the structure's rotational sphere. The film is simple and direct, juxtaposing the unveiling of the imposing house's engineering detail and history with intimate re-enactments of the architect and his wife interacting with the space, narrated throughout by the architect's daughter.

The Joy Movement has started with energy. It is raised fi'om the Universities and the work places promoting the joy as one of the basic emotions to reach. Escorted by philosophy. psychology and the scientific coimnunity in general, the Joy Movement infiltrates in the architectural forums to redescribe oíd interests and to propose new alances.

Five recommendations open this movement. five abilities to train in order to develope projects. The INTEREST is implication. the IMAGINATION is among other things the construction of images, the ABYLITY TO MAKE CHALLENGES helps to reach the fiow state. the CONCENTRATION is simultaneous attention and the SENSE OF HUMOUR is a positive glance that constructs opportunity áreas.

Five abilities. already proposed and tested by other scientific disciplines, that are understood like a departure point. a beginning proposal. a start open to interpretation. interferences. additions and redescriptions. With this lines. the joyism starts up. with the hope to construct a movement full of exemplaiy attitudes and unforgettable moments. a teoric trend that welcome individuáis, groups and multitudes, under the shelter of the projectual joy. After a time in latency. the Joy Movement registeis finally its official beginning in 2008. Now the rest is in your hands...
