Scope and Content

The project series documents "Achipensierio" a series of installations designed by Pettena from 2001 to 2018. The installation consists of variations of a building frame either made of metal beams or trellis covered in plants or straw. The building frame is designed to change form and appears deconstructed depending on the point of view. "Described by Gianni Pettena as “a contemporary Stonehenge,” but also as “a lesson in spatial perception,” this work metaphorically reaffirms the idea that there are no longer any frontiers today, when one is referring to themes relating to physical space, between the sensibility of the architect and that of the environmental artist." [1] The "Archipensierio" installations were presented in various venues from 2001 to 2018, including: "Archipensierio 2" at the Manifesta 7 in Rovereto, in 2008; "Archipensierio 5" at the Court Carrée du Louvre, in Parigi, for FIAC 2009; and "Archipensierio 6" at the UMOCA, in Salt Lake City, in 2013.

The project series contains sketches, elevations, plans, drawings and photographs of the installations. It also includes a small model for the Archipensierio I, 2001 installation.
