Spruce panels, hinge screws.
Commissioned by the Musée régional d’art contemporain Occitanie/Pyrénées-Méditerranée in Sérignan, France.
Stadio is an autonomous construction that slips into the existing space of the museum to accommodate the functions of mediation, discussion and exchange with groups of visitors, especially children. Occasionally it can be used for performances or shows. Twenty people can sit comfortably in each of the two rows, making a total of forty people.
Stadio is a compact, self-standing, dismountable wooden volume.
Stadio echoes a rare Renaissance building, the teatro all’Antiqua, an imaginary reconstruction of the first wooden theatres of antiquity. Very few of these have survived, only three remain: in Parma, Sabbioneta and Vicenza.
