lissoni architettura proposes a new museum of language that interacts with its visitors

language symphony is lissoni architettura‘s proposal for an iconic museum in london that will celebrate, curate and spread the languages of the world. using multiple elements, technological instruments project thousands of commonly used symbols that create a new movement, an evolution, determining a collective system. the innovative building transforms universality into intimacy to re-establish language as a cognitive and conscious means of global communication.

‘by hand and by mouth, we produce a global babel that gives form and substance to thoughts, uniting everyone under one roof where we all share experiences that pass through language, images and technology,’ lissoni architettura mentions. part of an international competition by archasm, language symphony is a center of a new global community where the deconstruction of language can be lived, a cultural heritage can be remembered and new forms of relationships can be fostered. using various symbols that define an experiential process, the building interacts with its visitors, challenging them, delving into their memories to teach of a future and to take them far from a time in which virtual reality almost precludes any visual or sensorial experience of language. hidden from the city, the project links to the symbols and defines an experience where sensorial islands welcome people speaking all the languages of the world, enabling them to establish a contact with their own history, their own future, the city, producing and actuating a new language. the team behind the museum of language is composed by piero lissoni, joao silva and gianluca sorteni.
