Under a jeans canopy with Diller Scofidio + Renfro
Liz Diller about their installation at the courtyard of Palazzo Litta in Milan, 4-7 April.
Under a jeans canopy imagined by New York-based interdisciplinary design studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro, this special pavilion is the ideal place to meet and greet, drink and eat, or just to shelter and free your mind.
“We like using ready-made modules – actually misusing them – for architectural purposes. In the back of our minds – and this might sound very peculiar – we have always wanted to use actual trousers as a module”, explains Liz Diller of DS+R, partner in charge of decking the Palazzo Litta courtyard with 300 pairs of jeans.
