2A+P/A + salottobuono: riti planetari

italian studios, 2A+P/A and salottobuono have completed ‘riti planetari’, an architectural installation at rome’s reload gallery. curated by emilia giorgi, the exhibition creates a radical atmosphere of layered and structural forms.

located within the tunnel of a former automobile garage, the installation represents at a reduced scale, the values, signs and guidelines of the collaborators approach to architecture.

a sequence of open portals divides the space, creating a slowly unraveling sequence that renders the visiting public as the true protagonists and integral part of the personal and collective experience.

from the designers,

‘riti planetari is a kaleidoscopic urban narrative. using a series of geometric grids, it re-evokes the images of monumental buildings and parasitic works of architecture, millenary spaces and temporary structures that offer themselves as stage sets for unknown rituals and ceremonies.’

established as a reaction to the lack of public spaces in cities, the installation aims to demonstrate how dialogue and discussion can transform entire portions of urban environments that lack public spaces for the communities that inhabit them.
