Life is more important than architecture”: with this statement often repeated by Oscar Niemeyer in his conversations, the exhibition of Interni for 2019 takes its cue, creating an event that as usual brings a festival of original works to the courtyards and loggias of the Università degli Studi di Milano, the Orto Botanico di Brera and – for the first time this year – to the monumental Piazza Sempione, with the Arco della Pace and the Caselli Daziari.

Interni has asked the architects and designers participating in this year’s edition of the event to translate the concept of ‘human space’ into experimental installations, starting with the furnishings that surround us and extending to urban mobility. From the natural environment to macro-system of production, such as the virtuous – and by now necessary – circular economy.

In collaboration with partner companies and institutions, over thirty installations have been created for the show, envisioning a future in which nature and the planet are protected, resources are saved and artificial intelligence is applied for the common good, promoting personal wellbeing.
