GREAT LAND by Studio CORTE is the winner of YAP MAXXI 2015, the programme promoting and supporting young architecture, now in its fifth Italian edition and organized by MAXXI in collaboration with MoMA/MoMA PS1 of New York, Constructo of Santiago de Chile, Istanbul Modern (Turkey) and MMCA National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Seoul (Korea).
The installation will stage the MAXXI summer events scheduled from next June.
CORTE team for YAP project is composed of:
Nicola Alicata, Cecilia Bandiera, Silvia Firmani, Massimiliano Giglietti, Michele Malagoli, Giorgio Marchese, Daniele Marcotulli, Gabriel Enrique Nariño, Arianna Nobile, Andrea Ottaviani, Giovanni Policriti, Annalaura Valitutti.
The project intends to imagine agriculture as a park. A space, entirely invaded by an extensive rice crop, becomes an experimental field in which urban practices, marked only by the agricultural material, offer the public totally unexpected experiences. Entrenched paths, glades, shady areas, carved out of a dense expanse of high sheaves, create spaces capable of welcoming and at the same time, of disorientating the visitor. In the evening, the great body of sheaves become agricultural stage-curtains for the initiatives offered by the summer program of events.
Cyn Cyn is an imaginary section of land that takes inspiration from a agricultural landscape and uses an artificial element to turn it into an open and enjoyable place. Walking through the boardwalk one can enjoy the view and then immerge into the big agricultural texture.
The installation offers spaces for playing, relaxing and resting and in the evening it can host musical events, lectures, screenings. The scarecrow that emerges from the plants becomes a scenic and iconographic element of the installation.
with Giovanni Benedetti
The interaction between two materials, earth and jute, defines the entire project: the sacks of jute are used as a technological element which upholsters the raw material, soil finds the simple mould of the container and there it finds its place. They become a border where different entities coexist: covering plants, wild flowers, wheat, millet, barley, beet tops, mints, nettles, thyme, flowers of courgettes and peas and beans. Beyond the stage facing the piazza, there is a garden where one can sit, taste, wait and refresh with the tubes for watering.
The installation was inspired by the market, considered as the oldest form of public space: a place of commercial and cultural exchange and a flexible space, capable of adapting to the changing of times, trends and consumption. Its roof, a strong and clearly identifiable element, characterizes the space and defines it through the shadow that it creates. The piazza of the museum becomes a contemporary forum populated with objects which allow, trough their different possibility of use, to experience the place in many different ways.
