Atelier Blumer: Seven Automatic Architectures and Other Exercises
The exhibition 'Seven Automatic Architectures and other exercises' by the Atelier Blumer inaugurates the Theater of Architecture, the new exhibition structure designed by Mario Botta with its headquarters in Mendrisio. Hosted until the end of May 2018 in a place designed to be in close dialogue with the Academy of Architecture, the exhibition itself focuses on the concept of dialogue, interference indeed between multiple disciplines that are not usually seen in a direct link with the architectural work, but having actually a leading role in expressing the reality in its continuous movement. The automatic machines exhibited and conceived by the students of Blumer – in collaboration with the Istituto Dalla Molle of Studies on Artificial Intelligence, are based on the use of their body as an integral part of the architecture, which determines its transformations.
The volume documents the projects realised through images, technical data papers and the concepts’ narration. Introduction by Gabriele Neri; with an interview with Riccardo Blumer.
