CASA DELLA MEMORIA

Milan, Italy
2011

Architecture

The ability to preserve the past while creating a future that is enriched by new practices is what distinguishes progress from mere change. The Casa della Memoria will utilise the full potential of new technologies without detracting from what has been painfully acquired through the course of history.

The Casa della Memoria will utilize the full potential of new technologies without detracting from what has been acquired over the course of history. It will house the material archives of historical institutions with the mission of documenting the last century of the city of Milan. At the same time, it will grow from its trunk of paper files into a new digital repository, propagating knowledge further afield. “Augmented Reality” is one of the most innovative inventions of the digital revolution: allowing you to project the knowledge accumulated in the digital archives of the past on the physical reality of the present. Like a magic lantern, the Casa della Memoria will cast pictures of the past on the places where the events transpired. The past is not destroyed, but saved and made visible.
