Milan Pavilion

IMG_7995.jpgIn the courtyard of the Palazzo Reale, visitors are invited to take a seat in one of the bright red chairs. The chairs are part of the Milan Pavilion for the XXI Triennial di Milano International Exhibition. Designed by Attilio Stocchi in response to the theme Labor after Labor, Stocchi used cherry red beams to construct a cloud-like structure above a seating area. There are screens with speakers scattered around the plaza allowing for the sounds of horses, construction and voices to be heard. The chairs are strategically placed far apart from each other so visitors are encouraged to sit alone and reflect upon what they hear and see.
