“Visioni per Genova. Progetti di grandi architetti” at Palazzo Ducale Genova

August 3, 2016

Genova is an asymmetrical city, with a balance of forces and weights that make it harmonic. This is the idea from which “Visione per Genova” draws its inspiration: an exhibition that brings together projects that have come and gone over time, following different paths and formulating sometimes even opposite hypotheses.

It is a thought on the possibilities that the architecture projects and design transform the conditions of the city, a place for collective  life. “Visioni per Genova” is an overview of what could be and is not (or not yet), but also a reflection on the potential that design and architecture have on the perception of the spaces in the city.

The exhibition showcases imaginary perspective drawings as traces of the design of an urban space in continuous transformation, always powered by a will to transmit the many forms and signs of the architectureof the city; forms and signs that result, as the title says, in “visions” for Genova, a place that has been morphologically characterized by the infinite possibilities of perception: being able to place a certain point of view, bringing in a framework of harmony, harshness and dissonance.
