Zero Space - From Utopias (υτοπία) to Eutopic (ευτοπία) Tirana
Commissioner: Mirela Kumbaro, Minister of Culture of the Republic of Albania.
Curator: Elton Koritari.
Exhibitor: VARKA Arkitekturë, commonsense.studio, Fablab Tirana.
Tirana’s Zero Space, where cosmos and chaos are fused with no predetermined contact point, is exposed in this installation through a sensorial experience created by composing elements that aim to include all the senses and guide the visitor in a journey perceiving the free space and true essence of the city. The public is therefore engaged with its sounds, shadows, lack of perception of the verge, but at the same time free to create the space and modify the physical configuration of the pavilion. Intentionally or not, the public becomes not only a spectator but also the protagonist creating a spatial form, growing cognitively into a tourist, or even more a citizen of Tirana. The Albanian pavilion opens its comfortable doors, full of colours, sounds, scents and shades of Tirana, in the 16th International Architecture Exhibition.
