Eight internationally renowned photographers, ISIA teachers, are called to tell the work of Giancarlo De Carlo in Urbino, accepting the architect's invitation to evaluate the last phase, the final result: in L'Architettura della Partecipazione he denounces how often the representation of architecture does not include the people who live there, while, for him, a place is a space “experienced, consumed, perennially transformed by the human presence”. A collection of images, therefore, that narrate De Carlo's work from Urbino today.
Paola Binante, Luca Capuano, Mario Cresci, Paola De Pietri, Jason Fulford, Stefano Graziani, Armin Linke, Giovanna Silva, explore and tell, through photography, the nature of this lesson. Their multiple gazes are flanked by the performative work carried out by the graphic designer Patrick Lacey and by the artist Ben Cain with the ISIA students and the narratives developed by the students of the Iuav University of Venice together with Armin Linke starting from the archive photographic material.
A selection of publications edited by Sara Marini and Alberto Petracchin underlines the theoretical contribution of the Decarliano project-thought, an essential component of his legacy. For the architect Gianni Filindeu, who created the installation, and for the graphic designers Leonardo Sonnoli and Irene Bacchi, also ISIA teachers, working on this exhibition represented the opportunity to participate in the illustrious dialogue between De Carlo and the architects of the Doge's Palace: Luciano Laurana and Francesco Di Giorgio Martini.
