SPS2 POP-UP INSTALLATION

Venice Biennale, Italy

2018

1/6

APT ARCHITECTURE returns to Venice for the second edition of SPS proposing further reflections about perception of public spaces.

 

The installation comprises two video screens, strategically displayed, and creates a space marked by a counter and a long bench. We engaged all senses of the visitors: vision, hearing, touch, smell and taste, while offering a moment of respite and reflection.

Vision, Hearing, Touch and Smell through the booklets and the videos.

Taste with local candies in a bowl.

 

The new set of questions are:

 

  • How does Memory influence your perception of urban public space?

  • How can urban space instill a sense of Belonging?

  • What is the seduction of Virtual public space versus Physical?

 

Like the common thread of our projects, SPS brings people together, encouraging communication and exchange towards a better understanding of each other, furthering the discussion of the role and the future of public space and architecture.
