located at the courtyard of the statale university of milan, peter pichler’s installation takes its cues from the extraordinary quality of the renaissance proportions of the courtyard of ca’ granda and plays with the fundamental elements of renaissance style: symmetry, proportion and geometry. the perforated structure comprises three separate wings that gradually change in height by simply stacking and rotating different lengths of wood sticks. an opening serves as the entrance to the pavilion while another two offer views towards the courtyard of the university and other installations. the project explores wood’s potential in a non-typical environment and reflects the studio’s thoughts about future spaces with sustainability, structure and spatial emotions as key elements.
