Innovative Perspectives

Project Lissoni Associati
Torre Velasca

Data Pubblicazione: 6 April 2016

Matter, air, space, light. Dynamic, harmonious, floating, glowing forms. Figures that illustrate technological development reflected in the aesthetic dimension.

For FuoriSalone 2016 and Interni Open Borders, the architect Piero Lissoni interprets the Audi logo in installations located in emblematic places of the city of Milan: the area in front of Torre Velasca and Via Monte Napoleone.

The four rings, symbol of the Audi identity, become metal creatures growing on a natural surface that emit and receive light. They evoke the lightness and strength of the mysterious, futuristic objects of the artist Fausto Melotti.

Expressions of this apparent paradox, the sculptures – conceived to suggest research that leads to the essence of things, making them light and luminous – actually convey an idea of perfect balance. Micro-architectures that seen from above indicate the presence of Audi in the geography of the city.

Digital Borders

Project Felice Limosani
Portale Sud Scalone d'Onore
Articolo di: Paolo Zangheri
Data Pubblicazione: 6 April 2016

Borders that tighten and close in reaction to geopolitical events in the world, in contrast with the burgeoning digital reality that takes man beyond his physical limts and projects him beyond the planet’s atmosphere.

The video installation symbolically expresses the paradox of increasing limitation of geographical boundaries, while digital boundaries rapidly expand.

Every day we generate 2.5 billion bytes of data. A mountain of items of information that can be intersected and analyzed to suggest unprecedented strategies and pathways.

Can careful interpretation of digital information open up new ideas for life, integrated with the migrations taking place on the planet? The challenge is how to organize the resources of Big Data, global policy and the civil society.

The project is made with a dedicated CSM (Content Management System) to monitor UN data on migratory movements, available online. The information has been processed with Unity (an integrated authoring program for the creation of 3D animations in real time) and with generative, algorithmic graphics.

Moving Lights

Facciata Esterna
Project Studio Castagna Ravelli



Data Pubblicazione: 6 April 2016

Bands of light directed upward, bowing and rising, intersecting and overlapping, to underline the festival of design organized by Interni in the spaces of Ca’ Granda: ten mobile heads in constant motion, hidden by two boxes at the sides of the gate enhanced by a line of Azul marble.

The light is white, to not superimpose itself on the color of the historic building, and to highlight the entrance to Open Borders.
