Abstract

The workshop and the scenario here reported, are experiments of morphological elements’ reinterpretation and of potential’s identification. We looked at the pre-existing as a cast with whom to dialogue, to be exploited or neglected by each own sensibilities and cultural references, setting an initial design strategy. The programme starts from a radical choice: a single material as proposal generator. The laminated glass, namely the glass as structure (vertical and horizontal) and surface, had to activate scenarios to be further investigated. The glass suggested the functional hypothesis: glasshouse, shrine, showcase; holding, safeguarding, exposing. Inside-out refers to the evident characteristics of glass such as transparency, but also to a sought irony: the material’s self reference and the leftover’s spectacularization.
