Part of SCI-Arc Spring Show 2017
This project started by observing and repurposing the work developed for the exhibition "Italy: The New Domestic Landscape" curated by Emilio Ambasz in 1972 and displayed at MoMA in New York. The exhibition presented the work of prominent and novel Italian designers such as Superstudio, Archizoom, Gae Aulenti, Mario Bellini, Gaetano Pesce, Ettore Sottsass, etc. The contents of this exhibition were arranged in two categories: Objects and Environments.
The first half cataloged both Objects and Environments, as they were presented at the MoMA exhibition. After that initial research we developed our own series of Objects and Environments, we will look at everyday objects of the domestic realm, as well as everyday environments that transform the ordinary domestic into extraordinary landscapes. The output of the class is a MINIATURE model similar to the one developed by Superstudio for MoMA's exhibition.
