My project rereads the city to discover new ways of experiencing art.
From the room to city and back again.
In the project, a relationship is forged between two entities, between the room (the Hermitage) and the city (st Petersburg), in which the room feels entirely detached.
Most projects in the unit are working from the framework of a room, by bringing the city into the room. I am doing the opposite. The room in this case is already an urban scale, so rather than trying to recontextualise the city and compact it into a room I decided to fuse a relationship of the room into the city by inverting the hermitage into St Petersburg. From an urban interior to an interior urbanism.
