Words from the architect

The exhibition "ARRIVARE A VENEZIA" is generated by the characteristics of exposed materials:

  • the four panels mounted on rigid supports for the new multi garage project
  • and the three panels for the presentation of each team selected for Final Phase of the contest.

The place chosen for the exhibition, the ex-church of Santa Marta, has a permanent structure for conference activity which occupies about two-thirds of the surface. The materials exposed were placed along the longitudinal walls of the church using a lot of metal screens 2.80 meters tall, made with a free-standing iron tubular structure of 6x6 cm. This system, made of modular elements can be reused by making different configurations.

View of exhibition displays.

The exhibition displays are metal screens 2.80 meters tall, made with a free-standing steel pipe structure of 6x6 cm. In this way there is no need for a fixing system. They are covered by hidden fixing with three alternate bands of expanded metal and iron painted sheet.

The position of exhibition displays marks the space of each project.

The projects are introduced by a vertical opaque band where there are the names of team leaders.

The exhibition display's structure gives a certain static solidity without becoming unwieldy.
