The exhibition presents the MICAS concept as a “work-in-progress” and aims to project the conceptual and contextual architectural design and transformation of the site from past to present. Images, archival photographs, videos, maps and developing design sketches have been sourced from the Restoration Directorate and integrated with the latest design development produced by Ipostudio (Italy).
Curated by MICAS Art Director, Dr. Ruth Bianco
, the exhibition takes the form of artistic and architectural installations, which include a sculptural ribbon by lead architect Claude Borg constructed with students, projections, models, interactive media and digital walkthrough. The entire exhibition is a holistic concept that integrates experimental development with the designs by architects who have been working on the MICAS design, together with workshop-based art installations entitled Prima Pietra (Vault 1), Aperturi (Vault 2) and Pellicola (Vault 2 – 5), led by Ruth Bianco and Claude Borg and involving the participation of students.
