Stone House

From the colonnade of the Università degli Studi di Milano’s Cortile Settecento, the installation read as a simple, house-shaped structure, centrally located on an existing diagonal path. Other perspectives, however, revealed incisions through both ridge and mid-section, opening the interior to the changing play of sunlight and the vagaries of the weather. These incisions allowed those passing through to experience the reassuring thickness of the walls and roof pitches surrounding them, at the same
time as they fractured the sense of enclosure and protection. At night, sources of illumination incorporated within the structure transformed the openings into blades of light.
