"The architectural proposal emerged from an intuition that marks every posterior decision: a new roof conceived as a large, folded platform, which rises and folds to emit natural light, and from which two new exhibition spaces hang. This operation frees up the western wing from the presence of the old ruin, which allows for the re-creation of a unique large-scale space, column-free, and offering different exhibition opportunities. A new roof landscape—clad in rigid aluminum panels—establishes a dialogue between its angular geometry and the irregular volumes of the sloping roofs of the castle. The pyramidal skylights, positive and negative, express through their variations that architecture is a combinatorial art; that our task, in the end, is to find the relative position of its elements. The new intervention in the Moritzburg Castle aims at protecting the ruins that have represented it for centuries. It does so by keeping the existing building intact, and superimposing a light structure that evokes the works displayed inside."

“Our answer to this dilemma is represented by the image of a long, inhabited wall, whose plan evokes the distorted geometry of the cloister and the nearby military bastions where they meet the mountain. As an expression of a new discontinuity, the building/wall manifests the dualities—nature/artifice, contemporary sensibility/historical record—underlying the project. ”
"Estate" is a series of photographs of negatives.
These negatives were purchased in Denmark, and are almost certainly the negatives of a Danish family sometime around the Second World war. The images seem to mostly be vacation photos with the occasional family photo in a city setting. This is the information we have about them.
These negatives are taped up on a sheet of glass and photographed in northern Italy, at and around the now famous vacation destination, Lake Garda. Every year hundreds of thousands of tourists descend on the largest lake in Italy for their own vacation, hoping for relaxation and a simple realization of their desires. The tourist infrastructure of the lake is highly developed, yet it can barely hold the amount of people vacationing every year.
