Aluminium, Marble, and Light.
The installation, City of Light, was a further investigation into the ratio between matter and light in Marco Piva’s Architectural projects. In a play between scales and volumes, various volumetric elements of different heights arise and grow vertically, simulating the architectural environment of hypothetical metropolis.
The installation consists of 20 blocks of white SIVEC polished marble, supported by honeycomb opal structures that uniformly disperse the light through the stone material. The base plate, which recalls the regular grid of an urban plan development, contains a system of LED projectors characterized by a frosted cold light.
