We have collected – explains Laura Andreini, the curator – a synthesis of all the material that the architects shared with us, created a blank – checked – canvas on which a time-line tells the evolution of this journey into the world of architecture. . Through these installations, both physical and virtual, we have understood how important the theme of chorality and the sharing of ideas is that they find development right on the work table. No idea becomes strong if not reasoned, thought, discussed, destroyed and reconstructed.

Since the spring of 2018, the Museo Novecento periodically hosts Paradigma – Il table dell’architetto, a review of temporary exhibitions that take place in the right wing of the covered loggia on the ground floor of the museum and feature famous architects, collectives and architectural firms of the panorama contemporary.

An activity that did not stop even during the lockdown, when the Museo Novecento – together with the specialized magazine Area – decided to move The Architect’s Table online, creating one more opportunity to convey art and culture . During this period, nationally and internationally renowned architects were asked to create a video from home on the subject of the architect’s table and how their work has adapted to smart working.

The contributions, which were shared weekly on the official pages of the Museo Novecento and Area, are now on display, moving from the virtual space of the network to the physical space of the museum and giving life to the “On-line” exhibition, curated by Laura Andreini.

Gianluca Peluffo, Benedetta Tagliabue, Mario Cucinella, Bureau Baubotanik, Adolfo Natalini, Pietro Carlo Pellegrini, Steven Holl, Alfonso Femia, Cherubino Gambardella, Sean Godsell, Manuel Aires Mateus, Luca Molinari, Vincenzo Latina, Alberto Campo Baeza, Snøhetta, Park Associati, Ipostudio architetti e Piuarch, these are the professionals and architectural firms who have put their time and skills at the service of this project.
