U & THE CITY

A12

Design of the exhibition “U& the city – Università e trasformazioni urane” , Turin (IT), january-february 2007

The exhibition traces, through plans, projects and images, the places of the Turin university system and their recent and future evolution: a path to discover how university facilities play a leading role in the transformation process of the Turin metropolitan area. The exhibition design is based on the repetition of a single display element, a table of fixed dimensions that acts as a support for the materials to be shown and becomes a metaphor for the work carried out by the Urban Center of Turin: the table as a symbol of meeting, of conviviality, of the continuous interaction between citizen and institution, the table as a work platform and exchange of information and ideas, as a device to display always different materials and for the collection and memory of the city’s transformation projects.
