The Migrant Garden. Untouchable Landscapes project, which Floornature reported on when it opened in Piacenza, has become a travelling exhibition, coming to Milan for the first time October 15 through November 20 at SpazioFMGperl'Architettura, the Iris Ceramica and FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti gallery and showroom.
“Migrant Garden. Untouchable Landscapes” is a non-profit project by seven young architects who invited 40 architects and designers from all over the world to design a model house. A birdhouse to respond to the forced migration of birds from the island of Pinedo, in the province of Piacenza, becomes an architectural metaphor for reflection on the wider-ranging theme of nomadism in relation to the concept of contemporary dwelling.
The original core of the exhibition first presented in Piacenza will be enriched in Milan with a contribution from Bernard Khoury, the Lebanese architect and founder of Bernard Khoury / DW5 and of the ACA – Arab Centre for Architecture.
SpazioFMGperl'Architettura presents the public with new designer furniture: chairs by MOROSO and coffee tables made by FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti to illustrate an alternative application of porcelain tiles.
