Scenes from urban life


Milan, Triennale, 2003

Stemming from international research conducted by Ezio Manzini and François Jégou, this exhibition reflects on the possible answers to questions about sustainable society. The temporary path focuses on the future of living and on different ways of living that are opening up new possibilities and raising new questions. Visitors are called upon to make their own opinions and judgement.

In accordance with the topic, the design of this exhibition provides sustainable solutions from both the point of view of the staging and the relational one, choosing an interactive and participatory approach. The path opens with a visual reflection on contemporary living: an installation composed of several synchronized screens reproduces scenes from the life of a great metropolis. The problematic elements of this reality are analysed in a workshop in the second stage of the itinerary, which introduces the theme of the sustainable city. Six large “glass windows” are used as projection surfaces to present numerous design examples answering practical questions about everyday life: how do you prepare food? How do you study? How do you move around? How do you use energy? Visitors can choose the answers and ways of life that best represent them by using voting cards. In the last part of the exhibition, the summary of their choices will be compared to those of other visitors. A large virtual globe, which turns and changes according to the indications given by all participants, invites to consider our global attitude towards sustainability together.
