[im]possible living The Process | Milan Design Week 2012

During this year’s Milan’s Design week [im]possible living participates to Fuorisalone, presenting the [im]possible living process through a series of conferences, debates and video installations aimed at raising awareness about the subject of abandoned buildings all over the world.

At the heart of the [im]possible living process are the regeneration of abandoned buildings and the temporary revitalization of unused buildings, channelling the energy of the web community.
There is no better place than Cascina Cuccagna, one of the most successful examples of social regeneration of a valuable city building, where to stage the presentation of the project.
Between the 17th and the 21st April 2012, Abandoned Week Design Contest will take place, a competition that will award the best photograph of an abandoned building in Milan. All photos need to be uploaded on the site www.impossibleliving.com

[im]possibleMilanTour #1

A week ago we organized the first mapping event in Milan and we want to talk to you about this experience that we definitely want to replicate in the near future in our city, as well as in others.
The idea behind this kind of events is to facilitate the process of city mapping, while involving new people in the process, and to discover a city in a new way: having a tour of the abandoned buildings of your town is very similar to look at the negative of a picture, it lets you see a different urban layer, that normally you don’t focus on!

In this period we need to find a location in Milan for a project we’re developing (we’ll talk about this soon) and so we thought we could call our friends, spread the word on the social networks and involve other people in the [im]possibleMilanTour #1.
We collected some information about the abandoned buildings in town, drew an itinerary on Google Maps and met everybody by bike on Sunday morning, at the very first building we were going to visit, the abandoned supermarket in Piazza Santa Maria del Suffragio.

Botta Baths and Caimi Swimming Pool, Milan, Italy

by Barbara Sambri, a fish-eye view of the Caimi swimming pool

The Caimi swimming pool, located in Porta Romana quarter and bounded by Carlo Botta, Pier Lombardo, Giorgio Vasari e Lattuada streets, is a historical public bathing establishment, dismissed and totally abandoned since 2006.
Once pride of the area, relavant and outstanding place for Milan citizens since its construction in 1939, unfortunately, it is now a symbol of the Milan urban decay.
Botta Baths are not just a simple swimming pool: besides the antique amphitheater bathtub, the complex accommodates changing rooms, a rooftop solarium, two arbors, one gym and a cinema, everything (all of these) located inside a wooden park, bounded by a masonry fence, and connected with staircases to the swimming pool.
The complex was built in late 30′s, to provide a public structure where people, thanks to a reduction in working hours, could enjoy the new spare time, following the motto “mens sana in corpore sano”.

House of Artists, Garibaldi 89/A, Brera, Milan, Italy

by Grazia Ippolito, a frontal view of the House of Artists

The history of this building, known as “Casa degli Artisti”, literally House of Artists, is one of the best we’ve ever talked about, it’s a story of art and passion that deeply touches the heart of sensible people, so I believe you’ll love it!
Everything starts in the beginning of the last century, when the Bogani’s brothers decided to build an house for artists, a place where painters, sculptors, photographers and others could work in a comfortable environment and share ideas with each other, an attraction pole for intellectuals and artists, the source of a cultural debate for the whole city.

downtown Milan, Italy

by Andrea Sesta, an abandoned parking downtown Milan, a few blocks from Duomo

This place is incredible: we’re in via Rovello right next to via Dante, in the very center of Milan. The parking is right in front of the Algerian Consulate, but seems abandoned by many years.

San Giuliano Milanese, Milan, Italy

 

by Marco Pieri, a hotel built in 1975 for Italy ’90, never finished and destroyed in 2008

This building should have been a hosting structure for Italy ’90 world championship. It was built in 1975, but has never been finished and was destroyed the 06th of April 2008 at 10:30.

This photograph is part of the project “MenAtWindows” by Marco Pieri. We talked about this project in our previous post. What do you think about it? Write your opinions in the post’s comments.
MenAtWindows revives and dwells in a forgotten, lifeless urban space, through a collective performance that turns not only into a photographic-click, but in a truly lived artistic experience. The abandoned buildings are temporally filled up with significance, by means of addition and subtraction.
It is an instant work of art: the protagonists of the performance are the men in red; they repopulate the building for a moment, occupying empty and colourless spaces, like a vital lymph that restarts to circulate inside the building. The purpose of the artist is to take possession once again of deserted places, metropolitan realities left without purpose, where art’s goal is to fill and revitalize the emptiness.
