Matteo Ghidoni - Public works

Matteo Ghidoni will discuss some recent projects completed by his office, Salottobuono. Through the construction of both episodical and permanent forms of civic space, they aim to formulate hypotheses around the idea of living together. Different scales of a problematic relationship with the city encourage forms of collaboration with cultural institutions, with public administrations, and with the architecture of the past. While often dealing with limited resources and the obstacles of bureaucracy, they suggest a relaxed, sometimes opportunistic appropriation of a knowledge that is public and available.
