ongoing Neri & Hu.

The show

The fourth edition of the program that every year invites established designers to interpret the MAXXI Collection.

For 2021, the Chinese architecture firm Neri & Hu was involved in interpreting the work of an architect from the MAXXI Architecture Collection.

Throwing a cultural bridge between West and East, past and present, the work of Carlo Scarpa, a master of Italian architecture with a long history of admiration for the East, is read by contemporary architects through the concept of "threshold", present both in Chinese 'jian' and in Japanese 'ma', which can be translated with the terms 'space' and 'pause'.

The proposed installation reinterprets this suspension in an architectural sense as a physical mediation between two contiguous spatial environments, distinct but not disjointed, according to an idea that refers to the relationship between interiority and exteriority, public and private space.
