9 Architectural Works for 9 Observers
Politecnico of Milan
9 architectural works in Milan, either brand new or currently on the drawing board, will be described/viewed/observed/dissected/dismantled/photographed/painted/filmed with the assistance of an observer, who is different for each visit: a university professor, school principle and Rector of Milan Polytechnic etc. Our four protagonists – the director, the architecture, the architect and observer – will all be on an equal footing. Each video lasting 60 seconds will be made using instruments available to the social community: smartphones; digital video cameras; iPads and indeed every device used by the ‘digital natives’ to speak about the city’s spaces and their significance.
The project was conceived and produced by Alessandro Abate, Elizabeth Germana Arthur, Lorenzo Boffi, Michael Camisa, Alessio Canna, Valentina Chiesa, Andrea del Martello, Nikita Mucilli, Giovanni Sannino, Luca Varvello.
