In occasion of this monographic retrospective exhibition, we were honored to show our work; but most of all we were glad to have the chance to build something inside such a significant historical space as the “Palazzo della Ragione di Padova” is.

Our aim was to transform this massive empty space into a metaphor of a Japanese garden, so we imagined two enormous “koi” carps floating in the space. A backlit path (with our projects images as pavement), would guide the visitors like in a garden through the different built pavilions, and towards some significant points of the existing building dialoguing with it and making it become part of this promenade experience.
