A Section of Now: Social Norms and Rituals as Sites for Architectural Intervention at Triennale di Milano

CCA elsewhere, Milan, 12 May 2023 to 10 September 2023

A selection of drawings and photographs originally presented in A Section of Now: Social Norms and Rituals as Sites for Architectural Intervention is now on view as part of Home Sweet Home, the exhibition marking 100 years of the Triennale Milano and its investigations into ideas of home and living over the past century.

Conceived as part of the one-year research project Catching Up with Life, A Section of Now looks at today, at the society in which we currently live, with a focus upon expanding notions of family, property ownership, activism, work, technology, and life expectations. While our original exhibition covered a broad set of themes, the modified version presented within the Triennale Milano (which also includes the CCA’s two films What it Takes to Make a Home and When We Live Alone) focuses more squarely upon the reconceptualization of domestic space and social relations. How can architecture and urbanism better understand our contemporary conditions in this sense, and how might they adapt to better address the challenges these conditions present?
