The main concepts of “MORPHOS II” are the unifying power of sustainable architecture and the relationship between man and the city.
Architects/designers have been invited to work about the theme of sustainable architecture and the relationship between man and the city. We imagine a future in which sustainable thinking will be the common ground of every cultures’ architecture expressions, and the hybridization of social and cultural realities will represent the new frontier of our lives. Artists, photographers and video makers will be present works on the theme of urban identities and hybridization between identities/bodies and urban settings in contemporary time. People, backgrounds, societies, progress and all their inputs creates hybrid identities, modifying each other and being mixed in prospect to shape a better world.
The exhibition is curated by Arch. Luca Curci (Founder of LUCA CURCI ARCHITECTS and It’s LIQUID Group).
