HUMAN CAPITAL IN INDUSTRY, from the MAST Collection of Photography on Industry and Labour, curated by Urs Stahel.
At EUROPEAN PHOTOGRAPHY, in Reggio Emilia, the MAST Foundation presents the exhibition ERICH LESSING: the work and the workers after the war, curated by Urs Stahel, a selection of photos from the MAST Collection of Photography on Industry and Labour.
May 3 – June 15: Wednesday to Sunday
The project was designed by STUDIO LABICS in ROME, which won an invited competition organized by G.D (COESIA group) in 2005, among the most renowned young Italian architecture firms.
Two major pedestrian ramps, which extend from the core of the building to the main access, symbolize the close relationship between the Coesia industrial complex and the surrounding city, creating a metaphorical bridge between COESIA, the immediate city surroundings and the adjacent park. The building consists of two sections that stand next to each other, with large windows, glass features, and frames in steel. The original architectural design extends throughout the spaces occupied by the various services.
A reflecting pool and landscaped garden complete the design, showing how the transformation of a former industrial space can revive an area on the outskirts, with company and community activities that make it a gathering place.
MAST stands for MANIFATTURA di ARTI, SPERIMENTAZIONE e TECNOLOGIA (ARTS, EXPERIENCE and TECHNOLOGY).
MANIFATTURA: the industrial identity of the district
ARTI: the highest forms of creative expression
SPERIMENTAZIONE:the practice at the heart of innovation
TECNOLOGIA: the application of techniques that can improve human life
