Today we have presented to the students the subject of our next Design Lab, which will take off in March 2012. We are going to deal with the refurbishment of a dismissed Milanese petrol station that was designed and built in the beginning of the 50’s by Mario Bacciocchi. The building represents a very precious heritage for the city and for its owner, Eni S.p.A. As we started to research about the history of the building, and the company, we realized how intriguing this project might become if all the issues around it will be taken into account…

Interior Arcadias

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

Interior Arcadias by Mark Pimlott from ADA Rotterdam on Vimeo.

Fragments of nature captured in an interior, particularly when they are alien or exotic, provide pleasure to its occupants. When brought indoors, nature imposes its own character and order, and the interior typically concedes in a fundamental way to its contents, and loses much of its substance. The story of such an interior is bound up with Enlightenment-born ideas regarding the categorization, possession and domination of the world’s natural contents. The nineteenth century witnessed an explosion of expressions of these ideas, which yielded the various building typologies we continue to be familiar with: the crystal palace, the arcade, the department store, the mall, and the atrium.
