Cosmowomen. Places as Constellations, curated by architect Izaskun Chinchilla, inhabits the space of the Salone Centrale with three complex and monumental structures made of sustainable materials. The structures are inspired by three armillary spheres, reduced models of the cosmos seen from the terrestrial perspective, used as astronomical instruments in antiquity and the Middle Ages to determine the position of celestial bodies.
Through a rich selection of 75 projects and 283 graphic images and drawings, the exhibition presents the work of 63 women architects from over 20 countries who come from the Bartlett School of Architecture in London. The show’s fundamental hypothesis is that the full integration of women in the professional and academic field of architecture would generate new “places of reflection,” or consolidate and expand the existing ones, by ultimately intensifying the relationships between those places and by creating a sort of a constellation.
