Kids in the City

Ideas for a multifunctional area

Client: Educational Dept. of Palazzo Ducale
Location: Genoa, Italy
Year: 2018
Program: Outfitting

Here is the proposal for the outfitting of Kids in the City multifunctional area, primarily available for kids. As part of one of the most important buildings in Genoa, this simple but versatile structure, entirely made of painted metal, is composed of a squared light frame filled with a preformed perforated sheet.

This module becomes the central infrastructure valuable to hold all the other accessories that can support different functions according to their assembly. Clamps, planks, hooks, boxes, paper rolls, paper sheets, ropes, and folding chairs are mixed to design a changing abacus of possibilities.

It’s a plain blank canvas where to outfit, exhibiting, didactic and entertaining activities.
It’s an out-scaled boardgame for both kids and adults.

The outfit is completed with a set of white and transparent textile diaphragms hung vertically to compose a three-dimensional screen suitable for a no-stop visual projection.
