The refusal of the regularity or the acceptance of the unorthodox.
It is the art of everything. In the inanimate and living. The shape and meaning,
In spirit and body, logic and absurdity.
Everything is architecture. By Hermes Trismegistus, by bacterium.
The Heraclitus said ... Everything flows ....
The Architecture says .... everything in shape ..... so have art in them ..!!

Bar Matricola.

by Michael Balaroutsos

MATRICOLA.It is a freshman at the university. so called by the Italians. So for me I was 35 years ago in Milan, when first went to the University of Architecture. Some of my friends, even before it well acquainted with the city of Milan, I sent to learn about the BAR MATRICOLA.
In a corner of the 43 Viale Romagna-Pascoli, across from the student home, I drank for the first time Italian coffee. (And it was fantastic).
In a room full of Architects students started to become too Italian, acquiring habits unprecedented for me.
It is not true that in Milan the majority of night clubs, bars or pubs are concentrated in the zone called the 'Città Studi' where the largest Universities and student housing is located. In the evening, this area, swarming with people, offers very little and one is obliged to move towards Brera or Ticinese. The only light, in the desert of the zone, is the Bar Matricola appreciated by students, and professors during the lunch break for a snack, a brunch or just for coffee. 
The Matricola is a bar in perfect classical style of an English pub in which excellent beer is served of a thousand qualities. The furnishings and surroundings in dark wood are very elegant and in the evening create a relaxing atmosphere which permits 
one  to  turn one's attention to thoughts that are unbearably lightImpressed by the interior.35 years later, I saw a random photo on the Internet.
It is still there. Proud waiting for new students to learn. With the same design with the same style as before.
Bar Matricola.A very small but important part of my life.
