ARCHITECTURE & INTERIOR DESIGN EXHIBITION
The goal of the workshop was to produce a complete architecture project in one week, operating in a setting and rapid timeframe that reflected professional studio conditions.
Featured are the works of previous LdM Architecture Students: Rodrigo Acosta Luviano, Ivana Sofia Contreras Madrid, Lorena Elizondo de los Santos, Rita Pamela Godinez Hernandez, Ileana Hernandez Robleto, Jesus Daniel Lopez Sanchez, Diego Alberto Ortega Rodríguez, Ana Lilia Piñera Lizcano, Magdalena Rocha Leal, Fernanda Silva Saucedo, Alejandra Zamora.
Piazza de’ Pitti is a wide square in the Oltrarno neighbourhood in Florence dominated by the imposing volume of Palazzo Pitti.
Situated at the foothills of Boboli, the square, like a sloping stage where once reigning élites gathered, is known for its monumental beauty, elegant palaces and façades, Pitti’s family glories and misfortune and treasures of Boboli gardens.
From the masterplan to the exhibition layout: five architectural elements of 7x7x7 meters are organized in Piazza de’ Pitti to create temporary spaces that dialogue with built environment and human presence. Each volume has to be used as exhibition space for design masterpieces: chairs, tables, bookshelves, sofas and lamps.
