ma0 proposal in the Expost section of Innesti-Grafting, the Italian Pavilion curated by Cino Zucchi at the 14th Venice Architecture Biennale, opening tomorrow Friday 6th at 12.00 at the Arsenale.

The cities of the Far West, as we have seen at the movies, a series of buildings along the main street, where you will find everything: the shop, the saloon, the barber, the sheriff’s office. But then, after a few steps in a sidestreet, the space of the prairie and the pioneers, with the bushes dragged by the wind.

Far West Milano is the union of two analogues worlds: a linear city and 52 acres of theme parks and hybrid productive activities, mixing advanced agriculture and new technologies. Two modes of development that confront and feed on each other: the city of a molar and speculative development alongside a territory molecularly modified by the pioneers of the economies of the future.
