Triennale di Milano. Milan / March 2019 / Politecnico di Milano


On the occasione of the XXII International Exhibition “Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival”, the project designed by Migliore+Servetto defines the Italian Pavilion “4 Elements / Taking care” as a contemporary library of scientific knowledge that represents the multi-disciplinary, analytical approach adopted by the Politecnico di Milano, an internationally recognized university.

The gaze expands from micro to macro within the space, moving along a kind of bookcase that spans the entire height of the room and covers both the walls and the ceiling, enshrouding visitors. On this structure, large, over-sized books and graphic episodes offer digital and physical insights into projects and content reflecting the educational hub’s vision on the theme of “Broken Nature”. Wide, luminous, interactive planes become animated in response to actions carried out by the visitors, inviting them to come closer and browse the pages, to enter the various research projects and experimentations on display.
In dialogue with this narrative system, a dynamic gallery is rendered infinite through a system of continuous reflections, forming a rich wunderkammer of the Politecnico’s work on the back wall. From Carlo De Carli to Enrico Forlanini and Giovanni Muzio, technical drawings, historical images, objects and all kinds of memorabilia crowd the space, almost breaking the physical borders and opening a sort of temporal portal that reveals a historic snapshot of Italian excellence around the world.
In the center of the space, exploded planes of light and graphics unfold while overlapping, like pages from a broken book that compose a dynamic installation. An articulated video-installation linking the sky and earth offers a narration on the four elements that intersect with content on the theme of environment, presenting a perspective that starts with Italy and then opens up to the world.
It is a Pavilion for browsing, listening and measuring, where exploration becomes a memorable experience.It offers an occasion to discover numbers, creativity, logic and the fertile fusion of different areas of thinking that has always been the strong point within the Politecnico’s way of thinking.
