Sexy Assemblage displays a heterogeneous approach to designing public spaces, where playfulness, actions, and communities together generate the time and space for experimenting with new forms of collective aggregation. As architects, orizzontale ask: how can one bring together skills, people, places, materials, stories, and desires that are quite different and distant? orizzontale suggest various tools, both formal and informal, that contribute to the creation of the assemblage, shaping multiple ‘open systems’ instead of defining isolated formal solutions.
Starting from a dialogue between different orizzontale projects, Sexy Assemblage explores those tools when applied in different contexts, scales, and spaces. For the installation in The Laboratory of the Future, a visual landscape presents a general approach to public space, collecting ideas, and texts. At the same time, the space itself becomes a form of collective aggregation, physically building a place of encounter both formal and informal for Biennale Architettura 2023.
