Be Wild! Re:Loaded

Also for IED Design Rome’s MiScusi Thesis project (see the related post), we experimented with an approach of accumulation and selection from the worlds of art, communication, and architecture to build an archipelago of visual and narrative references before the proper design session: but the refined selection, the juxtaposition, the first statements of intent already express a critical point of view that prelude to design choices. As in the case of the Wild Book, students were asked to collect the research work into a physical artifact, a “biblical” scroll to be unrolled as if it were a tablecloth laden with ideas and insights for subsequent spatial evolutions.
