by @desplans_arkitektur x @library.illustrazioni - président of the jury @jeanbenoitvetillard
Bangkok domestic tastes by Antonio Bernacchi & Alicia Lazzaroni.
Edition 3/30 on paper Hahnemühle William Turner 310g and delivered with a certificate of authenticity signed by the architect.
Pre order this limited edition drawing at email@example.com 'Bangkok Domestic Tastes' reflects about the secluded islands generated by the real estate market in Bangkok in the form of compact condominiums, aiming to portray the ‘lifestyle’ that each ‘condo’ builds up, 'renders' and sells.
It represents nine existing neighborhoods, where each individual development acts as an isolated sphere, but all together they also perform as an independent archipelago of self contained spaces for engineered life patterns.
It somehow inverts the proposed double value of utopia, as in this context the external projection of constructed aspirational horizons represents an unrealizable obsession, while all tensions are directed inwards, to reinforce the comfort zone, isolated from the neglected outer world. Its graphic is inspired by the representation techniques, color palettes, and composition of Thai traditional mural paintings, including hybridizations of typical urban animals, recalling the iconography of folkloric mythological creatures.
