following a twenty year hiatus, the great XXI triennale international design exhibition is back. a vast program of exhibitions, events, competitions, festivals and meetings throughout the city, the ‘XXI triennale international exhibition: 21st century. design after design’ touches on key questions relating to the new dramatic art of design, which consists mainly in its ability to deal with those anthropological issues that classical modernity has excluded from its brief such as: eros, death, destiny, history, traditions, and the sacred; the issue of gender in design; the impact of globalization on design; the transformations brought about by the dawn of the twenty-first century and the crisis of 2008; the relationship between city and design; the relationship between design and the accessibility of new information technologies; and the relationship between design and craftsmanship.

the ‘XXI triennale international exhibition: 21st century. design after design’ does not wish to present visions of the future, but attempts to decode the new millenium and identify the changes that involve the very idea of planning. across the city and outskirts of milan 19 venues will offer reflections on ‘design after design’—’after’ a reference to design as it was back in or subsequent to the twentieth century—including the pirelli hangarbicocca that presents ‘architecture as art’ – an exposition that presents fifteen spatial works that address new responsibilities of architecture in the twenty-first century; and an understanding of architecture as an artistic artifact.

international firms studio albori, amateur architecture studio, maria giuseppina grasso cannizzo, josep llinás carmona, carrilho da graça arquitectos, el equipo de mazzanti, catherine mosbach + michel desvigne paysagiste, lacaton & vassal, nArchitects, rural studio, rural urban framework and studio mumbai were invited to bring forth a spatial device suitable for encouraging visitors to look at architecture from a new perspective, relying on the persuasive effect offered by the museum display that is not typically dedicated to architecture. here, architecture is shown ‘live’, with the aim of helping discover all of the unique artistic qualities that are connected to the practice, allowing visitors to go beyond their usual, purely practical experience of architecture.

set within the ‘shed’ building of pirelli hangarbicocca, ‘architecture as art’, creates a sort of atlas that illustrates the themes and subjects related to architecture and building in the twenty-first century. at once the draft of an archive and the outline of a map, it appears within the arrangement of objects in the unified space of a parterre, alluding to the beginning of new actions and ways of being.
