The symmetrical structure inspired by the extraordinary quality of the Renaissance proportions of the courtyard of Ca' Granda and plays with the fundamental elements of Renaissance style: Symmetry, proportion and geometry. The project explores the potential of the materic presence of wood in a non-typical “building” environment as a structure that should transmit a spatial experience. The installation reflects our studio thoughts about future spaces: sustainability (wood as material), structure and spatial emotions.
Three separate wings gradually changing in height by simply stacking and rotating different lengths of wood sticks (1.600, form a pyramid-like ensemble. Visitors were invited to enter and explore the cave-like installation. The perforated structure filters light and evokes a playful game of light and shadow. It forms three openings, one serves as the entrance and the other two provide views towards the courtyard of the university and other installations.
