Built using a mish-mash of different window and door frames, this installation by illustrator and architect Federico Babina is a playful take on the usually serious business of pavilion design.
The piece was commissioned by Italian company Edilpiù to mark the release of its documentary Openings, which follows a journey along the Via Emilia – an ancient road that runs across Italy.
Architect and artist Babina was tasked with exploring ideas of openness and the relationship between inside and outside, all of which is playfully questioned with his all-window design. A set of steps lead up to the pavilion – located in the northern Italian town of Lugo – which is reminiscent of a tiny home, thanks to its front door and pitched roof.
Accompanying illustrations created by Babina show how the artist envisioned the space as if studded by pairs of open eyes – and one eyeball-like circular pane of glass gestures back to this.
