Venezia – 2018
Venezia – 2018
Exhibition entitled Extrusion of the threshold. No limit Architecture/Extensions and Variations. Room 11 – Palazzo Mora. The window overlooking “Rio di Noale” is as if projecting the facades of the Venetian buildings into Room 11, which seem to look at us, thus initiating an open dialogue between inside and outside that develops on the material wall, describing four Roman stations who have reinterpreted the relationship with the city.
The perfect opportunity to talk about the design process of the studio in the context of the redevelopment interventions of the railway stations in Rome. Each project has been fertile ground for addressing the usual architectural themes, such as the relationship with the city, the dimension of light, the study of matter, and identifying an architectural language.
STORY ON THE GO
The photographs tell how architecture filters technical, artistic and design notions by placing them on an ever-changing and unique city dimension, with the attention of those who want to experiment with a new dialogue, offering citizens a new vision of their city. The paintings allow a “moving story” that approaches and moves away from the wall and the viewer, proposing a continuous comparison between the various stations and architectural themes.
The poetics of the volumes is exalted in the Vigna Clara station, where the purity of the masses and of the material openly dialogue with the city and its history.
Veiled parts and unveiled parts tell how the heavy volumes of the Valle Aurelia station have become a succession of small areas which, through the unique code of the material, have found a new harmony with each other and with the daily activity of man.
In a similar way, one can read the use of light employed in the station Gemelli. The introversion of the station has been enhanced by the paths drawn by the light which assign a familiarity to the different areas that welcomes the person.
