Labics @ INTERNI House in Motion

The idea of Visionair comes from a reflection on the meaning of the inversion of the point of view, which is the concept underlying the recent researches carried out by Elica.
 
Visionair is a small architecture, a mysterious object that invites the visitors to enter. The interior is an enveloping space: a large video on the floor, reflected on the side walls, immerses the visitor in a surreal and upside-down dimension of reality.
 
The installation, completely independent from the context in terms of language and materials, finds a strong dialectic relationship with the portico of Cà Granda, from which it mutates its own geometric and spatial matrix.
 
Visionair is part of a research that Labics has been carrying out since some years on the relationship between structure and space.

Labics joins Beyond the Boundary

Labics is in Prato on July, 23 joining Beyond the Boudary. The international workshop represents the possibility to investigate some unsolved urban questions in Prato.

Starting from the building's area called exBanci - that is symbol of urban decay - and the Declassata's axe, linear system which crosses the city and, thanks for it, the same complex of ExBanci represents a determinate zip for its possible reconfiguration, the workshop's aim is to reach a general thought about how these two different topics would be linked, even these topics which regard a wider territorial system.
