SLOVENE ALPINE ARCHITECTURE IN TURIN
Exhibition in Museo Nazionale della Montagna
2. 2. 2021

The exhibition Slovene Alpine Architecture 2008-2018, that we had been preparing in DESSA Gallery in 2018 and opened on 28th January 2019, is now presented in Turin in Museo Nazionale della Montagna. It will be on display until 25. 4. 2021.
 
The exhibition brings together two exhibitions already produced and a new one. The two pre-existing ones are respectively Building Trentino 2013_2016, commissioned in 2017-2018 by CiTrAC - Circolo Trentino for Contemporary Architecture, and Slovenska alpska arhitektura / Slovene Alpine Architecture 2008-2018, organized by the DESSA Gallery of Ljubljana in 2019. Contemporary architecture on the western Italian Alps, which opens the tour, is instead a novelty, designed specifically for this exhibition, and is curated by the Research Center of the Institute of Mountain Architecture of the Department of Architecture and Design of the Polytechnic of Turin. 

Contemporary Architecture on the Italian Western Alps presents a review of works that speak of the mountains as a territory to inhabit, in which architectural design plays a leading strategic role, in terms of the translation of complex collective instances whose recurring themes are the regeneration of places in cultural base, green economy, enhancement and reuse of heritage, sustainable tourism, rearticulation and diversification of spaces and tourism activities. Approaches and practices that are consolidating and spreading thanks to a change in cultural vision.
 
Building Trentino 2013-2016 observes the changes in society reflected in the built environment and the consequent transformations of the territory, noting the spread of good building practices in Trentino, both in the capital and in the peripheral valleys. The projects demonstrate the good quality level and the ability to relate to the geographical and cultural context without indulging in obsolete formal mimesis, but rather reinterpreting tradition in the light of an idea of current life, where standards must respond to contemporary needs and agree with the nature of the place with a strong identity in which they arise.
 
The section Slovenian Alpine Architecture 2008-2018 presents thirty excellences of recent Slovenian Alpine architectural production, divided on a thematic basis and arranged chronologically. The projects are characterized by understanding and respect for the natural and cultural landscape, by dimensions carefully integrated into the scenario, by the selection of sustainable materials, by the translation of the traditional building heritage with contemporary means. The set of three projects demonstrates the extreme vivacity of the Alpine universe, truly a frontier land for projects capable of introjecting and responding positively to the challenges of the future of the mountains, in a subtle balance between conservation and innovation.
Frontier architectures confirms the commitment of the Museomontagna in networking for the construction of a new cultural vision for the Alps.
