Wooden installation, a symbol in Milan. The borderline view between the inside and outside

The boundary between the inside and outside, a necessary line, which must always be denied for it to be meaningful, is the theme of the installation created in Milan by the architect Luca Scacchetti, on the occasion of the 2013 Fuorisalone

The boundary between the inside and outside of the building, between the design of the interior and the architecture has always been a non-existent and fragile boundary made up of holes and solid gaps, windows and doors that are always ready to open. Architect Luca Scacchetti turned his attention to this inconsistent and yet fundamental boundary. It signifies considering something that is both hybrid and a separation that is a connection creating an installation for the 2013 Fuorisalone in Milan, which will be held in the seventeenth-century courtyard of the State University of Milan

Architecture is nothing more than what we see from our home windows and as we walk out into the city, we look at it as the containers of our rooms

A sort of telescope gallery, optical chamber, or caterpillar that, as it moves forward, raises its head to point upwards towards Richini's loggia or again, a hollow trunk into which to insert itself and discover, as in fairy tales, that it is seen differently from within the world. Outside everything is equivalent, from inside you can select a view and focus on it, you can look deeply with a different intensity

The building designed by the architectural studio Scacchetti Associati is a sort of exemplification of how wood design can now be used to carry out any desired design and aesthetic intervention, symbolically equivalent to a macro-scale optical instrument: it can be looked at from the outside and offers different and dreamed looks from the inside
