Design student’s view on future cities, showing at Galleria Jannone

The display is formed by the superimposition of fifteen of the Politecnico di Milano student’s designs, drawings and architectural models – resulting in a imaginary collective landscape both urban, natural and technological.

The Galleria Antonia Jannone in Milan is inaugurating today an exhibition created in collaboration with design students from the Scuola di Design from Politecnico di Milano. Called “In the Third Paradise“, the exhibition displays the student’s visions of a futuristic urban landscape from an immaginative, unprejudiced point of view.

The display is formed by the superimposition of fifteen of the student’s designs, drawings and architectural models – the result is a collective landscape both urban and natural, formed by “Men, animals, plants, unknown matter, orchards and videogames, secret gardens and molten metals, kennels and rocks, gyms, insects, feathers and even rooms to make love“.

The exhibition is concerned with how future cities have been visualised, what they sought to communicate and why. The aim is to identify and understand the dominant paradigms that have been portrayed in these visualisations.
