Following the official opening at Politecnico di Milano’s
Piacenza campus, SPAZIOFMG PER
L’ARCHITETTURA
hosts the important first stop in Milan of the travelling
exhibition
Migrant Garden. Untouchable Landscapes”, featuring 40
model houses designed by some of the world’s most intriguing architects and
designers with an exclusive contribution by Bernard Khoury for the current
edition only.

On October 15 the travelling exhibition “Migrant
Garden. Untouchable Landscapes
” opens at SPAZIOFMG: a non-profit project
presented by seven young architects addressing
the theme of contemporary
living with the aim of promoting a culture of architecture that demonstrates
awareness of the importance of the landscape and protection of
the
environment.

40 architects and designers from all over the world
were asked to participate in the study, which, starting with the issue of forced
migration of birds from the island of Pinedo, in the province of Piacenza, use
the birdhouse as an architectural metaphor encouraging wider-ranging reflection
on the theme of nomadism, interpreted in relation to the concept of dwelling.
The result is an original exhibition bringing together 40 different
interpretations of the home and the domestic sphere.

SPAZIOFMG is MIGRANT
GARDEN’s first stop in Milan, after its official presentation to the public in
Piacenza, enriched for this edition only with a new birds’ nest designed
by
Bernard Khoury, a prominent Lebanese architect and head of the studio
Bernard Khoury / DW5. Known as the designer of iconic underground nightclub B018
and the founder
of ACA – Arab Centre for Architecture, Bernard Khoury is a
key figure on the Lebanese cultural scene. His contribution to the exhibition
represents his critical, contradictory
vision of the home, characteristic of
the Middle East today.
