«Apple bombs, venomous caramels, daily lies, false information; ultimately, Trojan throws, beds or horses that when inside a house destroy everything that surrounds them. We want to introduce to you everything that remains out of the door: the fabricated banality, intentional vulgarity, urban furniture, voracious dogs»: with their 1967 Dream Beds, Archizoom wanted to contaminate domestic space with all the aspects of life that modern culture had rejected
A workshop (7-14 September) and an exhibition opening (14 September) not to be missed: this summer, we asked a selection of contemporary architecture collectives to put forward their own idea for a Dream Bed. In 10 images commented with 10 short texts, our architect contributors will communicate their take on the ideal bedroom, intended as the minimum space through which we can construct an idea of architecture. Objets trouvés, personal cabinets of curiosities, speculative projects: these ten images construct visual essays of sorts on what we left out the door — and what we wish to bring back in to challenge our lives and conventions.
The images will represent objects, people, textures, materials, elements of furniture, surfaces, atmospheres, other architectures, other places, other rooms.
Our student contributors will realize 1:10 models of these ideal rooms; the models will not be shown to the public, but only used as stage set to be photographed. For a week in September we'll discuss, design, and build together; we will use Rome and its territory as source of inspiration, starting by diving into the world of Emperor Hadrian, who translated his personal obsessions into the idiosyncratic choreography of spaces of his Villa.
