Extra Moenia

Fuori le mura / Outside the walls

Challenge: COVID19 is restricting and changing the way we can access buildings and we can experience space. For safety reasons, access to museums and cultural sites is strictly regulated and complex.

Vision: The outdoors represent a meaningful extension of museums and cultural sites. Connecting a building with the outdoors allows a different experience of the museum, its physical space and its collection.

Objective: Visualizing the ecosystem of connections of museums and cultural sites, by linking the building of the museum and cultural site to the outdoors. Combining data related to the collections to the original location of the objects, existing itineraries, potential venues, morphology of the territory, municipalities, mobility, infrastructure. Generating opportunities to create new itineraries (i.e. ethnographic, artistic, historical itineraries…) and new temporary exhibitions, dislocation of objects… We will focus on Ticino and on a series of examples.
