The quickest five to respond to MAXXI’s open call arrived from all over Italy: the students who for five days joined the team that built together with the well-known Japanese studio Sou Fujimoto Architects the great Energy Forest model designed for the exhibition ENERGY. Oil and post-oil architecture and grids, running at MAXXI from 22 March 2013.
From Monday 11 March to Friday 15 March, it was possible to follow the students Davide, Elena, Lorenzo, Luca and Massimo at work via the MAXXI online channels, from the main website to the museum’s pages on the principal social networks, and those of the main partner eni.
Day by day we recounted their experience through video clips and photo stories that attracted thousands of views, allowing them to come into contact with the museum’s “virtual” public.
Energy Forest is a project imagining a refuelling station of the future that works as a forest. The large model (3.60 x 3.15 metres with a height of 1.82 metres), with its over 3,500 scale figures, 800 sets of furniture and 100 trees will be added to the MAXXI Architettura collections.
