EXHIBITION: THE THEATERS OF CULTURE. EPHEMERAL PROJECTS FOR THE ETERNAL CITY
Here are some impressions of my project ASSEMBLING REALITY(IES) that arose during the workshop "The Theaters of Culture. Ephemeral Projects for the Eternal City" for Future Architecture Platform at MAXXI - Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo.
The exhibition investigates the potential of a revival of ephemeral architecture today, based on the legacy of Estate Romana. Along with FAKT, No studio, microcities/socks-studio and Lucia Tahan I got invited to design a ephemeral installation next to Luigi Moretti's ex GIL in Trastevere. The project has been realised in partnership with the Municipality of Rome, with the support of Future Architecture Platform and affiliation with the Seoul Biennale. In September the exhibition of the projects together with historical documentation regarding the Estate Romana and the Parco Centrale from the 1970s will be presented at the Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism.
