Spazio = Space

Cura = Curate / Care


Spazio Cura is a spatial and curatorial practice which gently intervenes within the existing scripts of public space and architectural settings. For each context, Spazio Cura develops specific performative scenarios that take its constituting elements into account — the built and unbuilt, its actants, political factors and economical flows.

For these scenarios, Spazio Cura aims to find delicate entry points to weave gentle, sensuous, and subtle gestures into existing structures, to rewrite the prevailing scripts and challenge ingrained patterns.

Each scenario is comprised of a set of tools, objects, garments and gestures, designed and developed by Spazio Cura and its network of collaborators.

During every step of the process, Spazio Cura thrives for radical acceptance of the existing while using as little, non extractive material means as necessary for a maximum spatial outcome. Thereby, space-making is not seen as the necessity to demolish or build new volumes, rather as an act of care for the existing, of revealing hidden spatial potential and by that bringing forth a new aesthetic.
