Exposition Catrographics Grounds for the Gallery of the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio

The exhibit, originally initiated by the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and curated by Jill Desimini, is presented in Mendrisio thanks to the curatorial adaptation by landscape architect Joao Gomes da Silva. The timeless practice of producing representations of the physical reality of the world gave rise to a cultural activity called ‘cartography’, embedded in the discipline of geography but influencing other disciplines in the sciences and arts. The exhibition therefore presents a vision of the relations between the tradition of mapping, the contemporary practice of landscape architecture and architecture as representation. The exhibition is divided into four sections, Subsurface lnventions, Temporal ltineraries, Aqueous Explorations, Terrestrial Practices, and is complemented by originai cartographic materials from the collections of the Accademy of architecture Library, enabling visitors to experience documents referring to the Swiss and North ltalian landscapes, a region where strong was the need to create and install infrastructure, improve the capture and distribution of water, energy production and distribution or road and railway circulation.
