La Triennale di Milano hosts “Inside Outside – Petra Blaisse. A Retrospective”

Inside Outside Retrospective at the Triennale is an exhibition that activates and expands a transitory space with its dynamic content and layout. A projection of the paths of the Biblioteca degli Alberi park, recently opened and designed by Inside Outside, creates a black and white pattern on the floor.

It is also due to the inability of affected populations to cope on their own in the aftermath.
