CINARK og Institut for Bygningskunst & Teknologi har fået mulighed for at være vært for denne lille, fornemme internationale udstilling om; materiale (tegl), værktøjer, produktionsformer og håndværkstradition - og disse deles betydning for dn sansede kvalitet i arkitekturen.

Udstillingen introduceres med en kort forelæsning ved arkitekterne Angelo Lunarti og Giancarlo Floridi fra ONSITESTUDIO, Milano.

About the exhibition

This exhibition examines certain aspects of making architecture in the contemporary world: through the careful arrangement of different sets of objects, finished or unfinished things, production tools, surfaces, couplings, molds, raw materials - all elements that have the charm of the catalogue and their own object-ive beauty at the same time - the exhibition reflects on the present possibility of granting architecture physical presence, applying both industrial production and craftsmanship.

The investigation thus focuses on the atmospheric qualities of buildings, the possible ambiguities between industrial production and craftsmanship, including the loss of the physical dimension due to the industrial process and human interaction inside contemporary production processes.

Through the observation of this series of industrial elements, a latency of human presence emerges. The careful presence of "inaccuracies", even within serial industrial processes somehow detached from any human interaction, attempts to maintain a human dimension of these objects and the buildings they can be used to make.

In relation to the strong virtualization and hyper-industrialization of production processes, architecture loses materiality, and the sense of it. This leads to the need to recover the physical quality of buildings, the sensation of their materials, the perceptive qualities related to variations and imperfections of bodies (constructed or otherwise).

This may happen by going back to the working tools, reasserting craftsmanship in the concrete presence of the unfinished materials, coming to terms with the physical quality of architecture, made of materials that are always different, like the people who produce them.

These sets of objects refer to three projects by Onsitestudio in Milan: the hotel on Piazza Duca d'Aosta, the BASE cultural center at the former Ansaldo site, and the public school in Cascina Merlata.
