Published:
Winners of the SHOT (Sala Dogana Hands-On Transformation) contest, organized by the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa (Italy) the group travelled to Genoa in order to transform the Sala Dogana in the Palace, which is devoted to Art by young and emerging artists.
The colour chosen for the plastic was gold and warm lighting was used in order to enhance its glow, thus emulating the monumental location, as the site is in the city’s historic district.
This project was characterized by the complex absorption of the building’s own pillars within the inflatable piece, as well as the intent to enhance the arches and the architectural volumetrics.
