White Architecture

Pinacoteca di Brera

White has always been the main color in architecture, from the ancient temples that even today continue to represent the past, to the most modern and futuristic architectures in public and private spaces. The white color, the essence of chromatic synthesis, emphasizes to the fullest architectural shapes. 

In Cortile d'Onore of Pinacoteca di Brera, Giulio Cappelini will create two specular architectural installations that will mirror the strong presence of the building itself in a novel and contemporary way. Oikos' textures and other materials will create an effect of light and shade. An installation that hangs between the physical and the intangible, with sophisticated results obtained through the most modern technologies. In the surrounding area, some of the most significant contemporary architects will create “microstructures” related to white, which will also be characterized by the use of various Oikos materials.

The following companies cooperated to realize White Architecture's installations: Bolon, Cappellini Studio, Euromobil Cucine, Sensitive Fabrics, Glasbilt, Fiandre Architectural Surfaces, Helios Automazioni, Italserramenti, Modular, Punto Scale, Resstende, Saviola, Viabizzuno.
