A Poética da Razão
Never too late!
After a weekend passed in Lisbon where we had the chance to visit the Trienal de Lisboa 2019 named this year A Poética da Razão, here our brand new thoughts! You will not read something pretentious about what it is shown, but only what we imagined and how we perceive it.
We had the opportunity to visit three of the four exhibitions. Curated by Ambra Fabi and Giovanni Piovene, O que é Ornamento is a spontaneous and categorized melting pot of projects divided by elements, elements which build together the ornament in Architecture. Still, the word element could bring you to memory one of the recent Venice Biennale: the 2014 one, the 14th, the Fundamentals one. In the Central Pavilion, Rem Koolhaas directed the exhibition through the base of the art of building, retracing and remembering the history of it and what is made of. O que é Ornamento is a try to the Fundamentals.
Espaço Interior, curated by Mariabruna Fabrizi and Fosco Lucarelli - yes… Italians are everywhere, so are we! - is the “other side” of the architectural space: it is the one that you can imagine, that you can’t see and touch but that it could it be once in the future. How the Trienal itself explains: “[…] Inner Space is part of an ongoing research project into the construction of the architectural imagination. It sets out to investigate the space between the inner and outer realities […]”. It takes you into the other part, it takes you to think about the not utopian unrealized project that nevertheless inspires you and bring you to think differently. Since we are kind of against this new old fashion of the “drawn architecture” and impossible one, Espaço Interior remains a beautiful in-depth analysis. And then, here we are to the final, big pop up exhibition which really delight us: Economia de Meios. This one curated by Eric Lapierre is an encyclopedia, as a friend used to say, of possible forms and possible architecture about our cities, the past, the present and the future ones. It is an emotional plunge in a series of beautiful well chosen project as well as their architects, from the roman Pantheon to Le Corbusier or to the Valerio Olgiati Villa Além, from shelters to domes and from enclosures to palaces.

Eight architecture students from venice, close to the end of their studies, split around seven european cities. The bond between them has been this project, assembled by sixteen hands kilometers far from each other, with no occasion to phisycally meet, but with skype calls and a huge quantity of chats. In order to obtain the best possible result, we've decided to team up with graphic design office M-L-XL, based in Venice. The book will be printed by Grafiche Veneziane, published and distributed from Anteferma Edizioni
The book will be published in mid December 2019, so expect to have it under your Christmas tree!

(in) Land | Simone Bossi
(in) Land is the first solo exhibition by Simone Bossi, a young architectural photographer among the most appreciated and promising of the contemporary scene. The distinctive character of his artistic imprint has attracted the attention of some of the most important magazines in the world of architecture, as he has photographed projects by Richard Serra, Piero Lissoni, Herzog & de Meuron and KAAN Architecten. The photos on display aim to highlight the most personal, hidden and creative aspects of his work; a deeply intimate undertaking that finds its maximum expression in the exploration of a cave. Since ancient times, the symbol of the cave has had disparate meanings: from the positive representation of the Mother Earth’s womb that welcomes, preserves and protects, to a darker interpretation as a frightening place, an antechamber of an underground world populated by monsters. According to Jung, it is the archetype of the maternal womb, a place of birth but also of danger. The cave is the perfect symbol of the unconscious.
Venerdì 22 novembre Studio Accurat e Antonello Romano saranno i protagonisti del secondo appuntamento di Live On HUB, il programma di incontri ideato da It's 8 Production e Ulis che intende approfondire i processi di trasformazione della società contemporanea e delle nuove tecnologie, indagandone l’impatto sul territorio, sulla collettività e sull’individuo. Aperta la riflessione sulla relazione tra dati ed essere umano introdotta dalla lecture di Salvatore Iaconesi e Oriana Persico, il secondo incontro metterà in dialogo lo Studio Accurat e Antonello Romano, che indagheranno il tema della geografia dei dati, le nuove interazioni digitali e le invisibilità spaziali che ne derivano, e le implicazioni sulle nostre attitudini sociali. Studio Accurat è società di ricerca e innovazione nel campo del data-driven design, con sedi a Milano e New York; Antonello Romano è un geografo e data scientist, si occupa di geografie digitali, piattaforme e Big data. Live On Hub prosegue a dicembre con Andrea Gaggioli, professore ed esperto in psicologia aumentata, a confronto con il filosofo Francesco D’Isa.

Camp Design Gallery presents Movimento, a curatorial project by La Cube and Salvatore Peluso, with projects by nine design practices from Eindhoven, Madrid and Milan: Andrés Izquierdo, Elissa Lacoste, Inés Sistiaga + Lucas Munoz, La Cube, Matteo Pellegrino, Parasite 2.0, PLSTCT, Shahar Livne and Tellurico. In the Italian dictionary, among the meanings of Movimento (movement) you can find: “any phenomenon of aggregation and mobilisation of individuals who, as a result of socio-economic changes, develop consciousness about their social group identity and actively engage to achieve a change in their condition or in the political system itself.” The curatorial project proposed by La Cube and Salvatore Peluso is a network design, which brings together free and autonomous practices, unrelated to industrial logics and immediate functionality. Those presented at the Camp Design Gallery are projects that can tell stories, explore the possibilities of matter and its cultural meanings; they are projects that undermine the Western concept of comfort and that generate ambiguity rather than having a specific use.
Proud to be guests together with Acropolis and HPO!

- Chi desidera ma non agisce alleva pestilenza, afferma William Blake. Qual è quindi il desiderio comune che lega queste esperienze di cultura studentesca?
Probabilmente la risposta che più si avvicina all’univocità è una visione dell’università non come industria dell’istruzione quanto come universo dell’educazione.
