Turn-it-over


XS micro-occupations on XL infrastructures
A moving and temporal project that acts in/with/within urban infrastructure for bodies’ purposes
File under

Turn-it-over embraces both large and small scale urbanism, espousing the need to encapsulate the most topical daily-life aspects in today’s cities. It sets up intimate experiences by using ordinary objects and transforms them into a thriving communal space.

XS micro-occupations create performative architectonic spaces in a human scale that is interpreted intimately and overcomes to XL precise and functional infrastructures. Rising up Marcel Duchamp’s “ready-mades,” this work makes visible secret and hidden feelings from the public spectrum, revealing simultaneously other spatial dimensions where bodies claim their own identities, aesthetics and [emotional] behaviours that challenge the fixed and established built environment.

Turn-it-over understands contemporary cities as a set of efficient elements that accelerates production over quality, and acts in a future architecture led by a contemporary culture of sensitive counterspaces.
