As part of INTERNI’s Hybrid Architecture Exhibition event, Steven Holl Architects will be opening their 'INVERSION' installation tomorrow, April 9th, in Milan. In addition, Steven Holl will deliver a lecture in the Aula Magna of the Università degli Studi di Milano at 10am. Shown in the Cortile 700 of the Università degli Studi di Milano, the installation features six void-cut, 21 million year old limestone blocks, which frame a sheet of water. The process, beginning with a 5”x7” watercolor sketch in New York City, which is transformed into a 3D file and then sent to Lecce, required no working drawings. More information on their installation after the break.

The forms are carved rectangular stone blocks, and the direct reversal as solids. In the evening they glow like stone lanterns powered with flexible high-powered LED strip tubes provided by iGuzzini lighting company. The stones hover and reflect in a sheet of water with a misting system created by Teuco Guzzini.

Beginning in Lecce and trucked to Milan for the exhibition, the heavy stones will be flown air freight to Princeton, NJ after the show, to be installed in the permanent configuration of the new Performing Arts Center by Steven Holl Architects.
