BIENNIAL OF ARCHITECTURE 2018
WonderGlass invites you to Kosmogonos an exhibition that combines glass with sound and light to make the visitor question what the modern city will be like and how the universe can stimulate design.
The exhibition, as part of DESIGN.VE, during the 16th Venice Biennale of Architecture, will present works by studiopluz and Raw-Edges at the Church of Ospedaletto, in association with Zuecca Projects.
Satellite images from space show a very different world to the one we know. With that in mind, how might the cities of Earth look to someone from another planet? Ponder upon this notion through an intricate maze of glass that when viewed from above bears a strong resemblance to a circuit board, an element essential to the modern existence that could very well inspire the framework for cities in the future.
The installation is inspired by deep space, and the emotions experienced while gazing at the night sky. Themes including gravity, utopia, and geometry are explored through a range of works that incorporate the perfection of symmetry juxtaposed against the material inconsistency of glass.
In addition, Horah, an installation of dancing lights designed by London-based duo Raw-Edges will offer a kinetic spectacle.
