About The Museum, a project by Space Encounters Office for Architecture
Amidst the hectic bustle of the Milan Design Week, where visitors are confronted with an onslaught of exhibitions vying for their attention, Space Encounters introduced a space of restorative calm, serenity, and singular focus. This temporary installation contained the archetypical qualities of a conventional museum, while deconstructing the composition of spaces to create grandeur and the experience of architecture at half the scale.
Constructed with matte blue MDF panels, the structure was positioned softly, yet in intriguing contrast within the central courtyard of Palazzo Clerici. The Museum was a pavilion that showcased the creative industry of the Netherlands, touching on the disciplines of architecture, photography, music, design, fashion, VR, film, and digital communication. A singular route shielded the visitor from distractions, enabling full immersion and focus. As the visitors moved from one space to the next, each structure presented its own character, endowing the journey with a sense of suspense.
