Erasmus Effect: architecture on the run.
Inaugurated at the MAXXI exhibition an exhibition dedicated to talented Italian architectures who have chosen to export their talent abroad. Ribbon cutting on December 6th for a show dedicated to celebrate the many talents who packed their luggage seeking (and found) fortune abroad.
The event, organized at the MAXXI Architecture and edited by Pippo Ciorra , bears witness to this trend of Italian architecture: in fact more and more conceptual choose to exploit their potential abroad. Countries more sensitive and receptive to the voice of art, its shapes, hence having the honor to host and follow the growth and success of 'our' talented architects.
If an experience is undertaken as growth, and experimentation purposes of their self knowledge, a perception of the world as a single trip (thus the reference to the European university exchange program Erasmus) often turns into a lifestyle choice. This indeed is a clear index of the phenomenon spokesman of the critical issues of contemporary Italian architecture.
The exhibition represents a path made of models, drawings, photographs, videos and animations which document the extent and quantity of work completed by designers; Erasmus Effect is also an overview of major projects carried out by Italians in more than a century: from the Museum Arts of St. Paul to the Australian Parliament, at the Beaubourg in Paris, the new Scottish Parliament, to the archives of Bure in France and Waka, also recently made to contribute to the supply of water in Ethiopia.
