IN&OUT: architecture and materials
In addition to the booths dedicated to companies and the rich program of seminars, the 2019 edition of Architect@Work offers a series of exhibitions whose theme is IN&OUT. The exhibition “IN&OUT: architettura e materiali” (“IN&OUT: architecture and materials”), curated by Arianna Callocchia, with OFARCH and DDN, is focused on the concepts of requalification, regeneration, reuse and recycling in architecture, both in indoor and outdoor spaces.
A “loop”, a continuity between indoor and outdoor spaces is therefore established. However, also materials, being used several times during their lifecycle thanks to recovery and reuse technologies, can experience their own “loop”. One of the goals of Architect@Work is to allow architects to explore innovative materials and technologies.
The fit-out project represents the concept of “infinite”: two cylindrical envelopes, an open and a closed one, are connected to create one single architectural element. The exhibition path is thus conceived as a kind of continuous, smooth circuit, which leads the visitor to enter and exit open or closed spaces, exploring different perspectives.
All materials on show, both natural and artificial, are sustainable and innovative. Their technical performance, architectural applications and possible uses in the field of reuse and recovery are illustrated through a tactile and sensory experience. The exhibition aims at allowing architects and designers to get to know the latest materials available for architectural or urban regeneration, complying with requirements of environmental and social sustainability.
