In these months of the end of the year we are warming up the engines to open the doors to a 2022 full of initiatives and important news that will concern us closely but that will involve strategic partners for us, thanks to a synergy that becomes today the winning ingredient to enhance the capabilities of a country system that can and must go further.
This is the reason why, together with the Fondazione Querini Stampalia, we met during these days of November, to start a debate that will take us inside a Space to be discovered, the one beyond the Threshold!
What is the threshold? a lived-in place or just a fleeting area of transit?
What meanings do we attribute to this particular environment in our daily lives and more generally in architecture?
Can the architectural space of the entrance be a cultural connotation of a society, a tradition, or a historical moment?
We tried to answer to these and other suggestions with Donatella Calabi, IUAV professor, Nicholas Bewick of Michele De Lucchi & AMDL Circle, and Matteo Tora Cellini of CamerAnebbia during the talk « Lo Spazio oltre la Soglia » (The Space Beyond the Threshold).
The event was a precursor of DoorScape, an international competition for entrance architecture promoted by Oikos Venezia and Fondazione Querini Stampalia, in collaboration with ADLER, ISEO and LAMINAM, which will be launched in early 2022.
