Living close to the sky

Living close to the sky

Urban furniture

UN-USEFUL exercises require to transform a real existent building, site, space, etc. into something astonishing, with lightness and poetry, in order to make people full of wonder [wonder-full]. It is important to work within the ‘Everyday scape’ and not to search for abstract configuration.
No practical function has to be pursued! UN-USEFUL is just for the pleasure: it has to improve the quality perception of your everyday scape, moving you towards a different understanding of your context.
"Living close to the sky" proposes a possible life on our cities' roofs far away from daily life commitments.


The UN-USEFUL is part of the Interior Architecture course (prof. Postiglione) exercises developed during the Fall Semester 2008: each entry has a student as author (the name is written in the file extension).
