Academic project

In a rapidly urbanizing world, lifestyles and habits are changing from the past, causing people to live in smaller and more fluid spaces. The traditional home is becoming a combination of flexible rooms with multi-functional furniture.
One of the consequences of this process is the fragmentation of the laundry room in a series of actions spread in the entire house.
The exhibition proposal reflects on this theme and imagines a set of six new devices combining architectural features, laundry activities and everyday habits in order to make possible extra-ordinary spatial experiences.
A 70x70cm white cardboard cube is hanged on a wooden frame and contains an overlapping system of optical devices with peepholes in which people can peek into to discover the laundry devices inserted into an evocative scenario.
