Zighizaghi by OFL Architecture

OFL Architecture designed Zighizaghi, a multi-sensorial urban garden that stems from a collaboration between Milia Shop and Farm Cultural Park. The project springs from the need to create a welcoming place for the citizens of Favara, a small town in the southern part of Sicily, while simultaneously donating to the city an innovative public space shaped from the combination of wood and vegetation.

Milia’s desire to express its link with the field of biology has served as the genesis for the project, which is inspired by shapes such as hexagons. The project consists of two levels: the horizontal – the floor – and the vertical – the lighting systems. The horizontal level is intended as an aggregation of wooden elements made of phenolic plywood and knots of Okoumè, and is designed to assume different configurations thanks to the modularity and flexibility of its geometry.

The vertical level is composed of six fourteen-sided red prisms, made up of a luminous body and a loudspeaker. These three-dimensional elements are now used with the aim of contaminating the city’s outskirts through art and architecture. Thanks to its interactive character, Zighizaghi transforms its external space into a dynamic environment where music acts as a vehicle between nature and visitors.

Art | September 17, 2020

El Anatsui is one of the most important contemporary artists of his generation. The Kunstmuseum Bern is mounting the largest exhibition of the work of the Ghanaian artist so far. His sculptures upend traditional categories and reflect the (post-)colonial relationship between Europe, Africa and the New World. The exhibition focuses on the monumentality of El Anatsui's work and encompasses every media in the artist’s prodigious fifty-year career. "We are proud and happy to be able show this truly splendid exhibition.
