Gotthard Landscape – The Unexpected View
La Biennale di Venezia Collateral Event
La Biennale di Venezia | 14th International Architecture Exhibition Venice
Two schools of architecture, the Department of Architecture at the ETH Zürich and the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio AAM present with support from Pro Helvetia a project entitled «Gotthard Landscape: The Unexpected View». The project deals with the passage from a factual and territorial oriented tradition in the Alps, towards a virtual territorial principle based on a scientific appropriation of the landscape. Our own landscape vision of the Alps is thus dematerializing and acquiring the visual character of an interactive digital sculpture. The transparency and «liquefaction» of territorial reality through point cloud digitalization invites us to a completely new way of seeing. Its virtual character the diaphanous «technical» colouring of the topological surface provokes an uncommon artistic and aesthetic fascination.
The exhibit has been named one of the top 25 exhibitions to visit by Wallpaper Magazine. The second run of the exhibition is running through October 5, 2014. Don’t miss this one of a kind exhibition!
