For the new Exhibition-Event of INTERNI (edition 18), ENERGY FOR CREATIVITY Fuorisalone 2015, Piuarch goes to the origin of architectural archetypes of Ca' Granda, to build an installation that aims to stimulate a reflection on the architectural features of the context. The classic elements of the architecture of the Statale University - the frieze, the column and the arch - are broken into pure geometric figures, from these shapes arises an interactive volume. The three architectural forms, covered with grès Mystone Marazzi, offer multiple visions look 'in', look 'to' and look 'through': guests, approaching and entering the structures, can live experiences of reflection and vision, totally immersive or kaleidoscopic games.

Università degli Studi di Milano,
The triangle is born from the frieze
The square is created by the columns
The circle comes from the arch
The views created within the structures are emphasized with mirrors that reflect the tile Marazzi Progetto Triennale - designed by Gio Ponti and Alberto Rosselli in 1960 - and the coating ColorUp, that reminds Optical Art.
At the ceiling tile Marazzi #puntidivista designed by Piuarch for this installation, reworking the design of Gio Ponti.
