Biennale di Architettura Venezia 2018 / Corderia 24N
E. & M. Boesch architects / Accademia di architettura Mendrisio Università della Svizzera italiana
REUSE: black yellow red
The installation draws attention to a main topic of architecture: Reuse. Four panels with large scale prints of architectural drawings applicating the specific color code black (what remains), yellow (what has been demolished) and red (what is to be added) give visibility to the topic. Additionally, two books – Yellowred vol. 1 and a monograph of the architects’ work - represent the two interdependent spheres of teaching and practice. Visitors are invited to browse them on two monitors. Reuse, a relevant topic of architecture, urgent and substantially rich enough to become the topic of a future Biennale.
