UNStudio’s Motion Matters exhibition opens at the MAXXI Museum in Rome

On Friday 6th Dec the third edition of UNStudio’s Motion Matters exhibition opened at the MAXXI Museum in Rome. After successful installations at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design in 2011 and at Aedes in Berlin this Summer, this site-specific exhibition concept has been tailor designed and realised for Gallery 2 of the MAXXI Museum. UNStudio’s installation brings to a close the ‘Nature’ cycle in which MAXXI has been experimenting with a different approach to monographic exhibitions.

UNStudio's site specific installation involves the public in a dynamic debate. The exhibition is a response to the traditional architectural exhibition in which rescaled representations of architectural designs are presented. In the Motion Matters installation the object exhibited is not in a display case, or merely an object to be looked at, but instead interacts with the visitor and requires their active participation.
