Cisterns, disused factories, hypogeal structures, unfinished buildings and hangars are spaces that, in a city as Milan, could represent the possibility of conversion and replacement as active places of strong cultural communication. In these kind of spaces it is necessary to find and analyze the correlations between “the inside and the outside”, meaning the relationship among the urban spaces, the context, the building and its interior, in favour of the architecture of exhibiting, but without declass or choke the object to show. The architecture of exhibition, unlike the museum’s one, is characterized by temporariness, flexibility and use of materials suitable for a short exhibition. But it is, at the same time, a territory of technical and technological experimentations, field of application for multimedia, virtual and sensory communication, in which the visitor is lead on a way where pauses, rhythms, lights, movements and times of using spaces are essential elements. The course is about teaching to the student to project the exhibition of events / art shows / fairs. The choice of facing the theme of exhibition of an unusual space, without typical exhibiting or museum features, is probably the hardest work that a student has to do, both for its spatiality and for the historical and symbolic expressiveness of some architectures.
