Louis Kahn e Venezia: rapporti umani, progetti, mostre, incontri con gli studenti, conferenze e riflessioni speciali, come quella improvvisata sul tetto di Palazzo Ducale, davanti alle cupole marciane. Ogni capitolo di questa liaison apre pensieri su temi complessi: il rapporto tra la memoria del passato e la cultura del presente; la rilettura dell’architettura antica da parte di un visionario moderno; il rapporto tra architettura e ingegneria in un Palazzo immaginato come un grande ponte sospeso; la ricezione dell’opera di Kahn in Italia e la speranza progettuale della cultura moderna. Dalla somma di queste esperienze emerge la lettura che Louis Kahn fa di Venezia, ancora oggi meritevole di essere approfondita sia in chiave storica sia in relazione ai problemi odierni della città. Testi di: Elisabetta Barizza, Mario Botta, Fulvio Irace, Gabriele Neri, Werner Oechslin.

An artist of international renown based in Belgium, Koen Vanmechelen has centered his work on the relation between nature and culture throughout the course of an almost forty-year-long journey. Acclaimed for his exploration of the intersections between art and science, the artist tries, through his projects, to understand and pose questions on the great challenges of the 21st century. Sculptor, painter, performer, filmmaker, as well as a human rights advocate, the artist has rounded out his projects for the hybridization of both animals and plants with the contamination of the figurative arts, of materials and media making formal proliferation within conceptual complexity his own personal earmark on a creative universe that is as unique as it is unmistakable. This catalogue of the exhibition illustrates more than sixty-five pieces ‒ which were all realized between 1982 and 2019 ‒ intended to highlight the more strictly plastic aspects of his body of work. Texts by: Boas Erez, Mario Botta, Didi Bozzini, James Putnam, Marcus Thelen, Pierluigi Panza, Koen Vanmechelen.

The book presents a series of installations, conceived and built by Riccardo Blumer’s students at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture. They are a further stage in a distinctive educational process where the fundamental principles of architecture are learned in particular by reflecting on the role of the human body: emphasising its poietic role (the body that builds objects), its scenic potential (the body as a spatial device in motion) and its function as a unit of measurement of the world. The students then identified two areas of investigation to be combined. On the one hand a simple, archetypical architectural theme (door, wall, path, etc.); and on the other, a reflection that investigates physical phenomena and their relation with the body, using electronics, programming, bricolage, etc. The result is a set of installations, which the observer’s body can interact with, and which gives rise to a meditation on the primary themes of architecture.
