Cabinet of Curiosities

Architettura Monumentale is an axonometric projection showing two sides of a volume standing on a tiled pavement with a grey sky in the background. The building is dark, rough and introverted, lacking an explicit function. The challenge of the project was to imagine life within this form: starting from the partially defined outer volume we unveiled the invisible facades and entered into the unexplored interior to finally conquer the building as a whole. For the first Biennale in Orléans the project has been built in a reduced version, turning the house into a Cabinet of Curiosity.
