The XXII Triennale di Milano is still ongoing, despite the fact that Milan Design Week 2019 has ended. You’re still on time to discover a couple of interesting showcases in Milan city and today we’re showing you what you can still see during this event.
This was the main theme of the XXII Triennale di Milano essentially consisting of an edition which will study the state of the strands that connect human beings to the natural environment. Until September the 1st this will be an initiative that intends to invite many young designers and interested participants to engage in a collective reflection on this matter. They will engage their audiences in this reflection by underlining the concept of restorative design, and also by highlighting objects and concepts at all scales to help to reconsider human beings’ relationship with their environments.
Still inserted within the main theme of the XXII Triennale di Milano, there will also be a set of directly commissioned works that will aim to show some design approaches intended to not only help the audience at correcting humanity’s self-destructive course, but also continuing the reflective topic of replenishing our relationship with the environment and with all species (both animal and human).
The Great Animal Orchestra was created by American musician and bio-acoustician Bernie Krause and the London-based studio United Visual Artists (UVA). This installation set within the Triennale di Milano is better defined as a meditative work focused on the necessity of preserving the beauty of the animal world. It’s now set in Milan until September the 1st.
This showcase consists of a non-technical scientific show curated by Stefano Mancuso, a man known for being one of the world’s leading experts in plant neurobiology and also with artistic supervision by Marco Balich, the creative director of the Olympic ceremonies. Mancuso intends to take a whole new approach to plants as we know them by using them not just for what they have to offer to people, but also for what they can teach these same people.
Lastly, you’re still on time to see the Milano 2030 exhibition set under the artistic direction of Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli and curated by the research and design collective Fosbury Architecture. This initiative consists of a showcase set to become a new hub and meeting place for institutions and professionals. Among the highlights, you can find in this ongoing event is the project Agenti Climatici by OMA and Laboratorio Permanente. It consists of the winning proposal for the redevelopment of the disused Farini railway yards, and it’s also an invitation for citizens of Milan and all sorts of visitors, in general, to participate by giving their suggestions and feedback regarding this particular project.
