City Voices, Milano

by | Dec 18, 2017 | Artistic, Europe, Regeneration

We love when our TC collaborators share cool experiences of cities around the world from their travels.

Especially projects that connect perfect strangers and improve the place experience, like this interactive public art in Milano!

Alberto Garutti’s public installation “City’s Voices”, featuring 23 trumpet shaped pipes, connects the sounds of the underground to the surface. People put their ear to them to listen to the noises of other people, on other floors at Milano’s newest urban-renewal project, Porta Nuova district, a melange between the old and new faces of the city. Garutti’s usual work uses the urban backdrop to seek that people understand his artistic interventions, no matter if they realised it was art, see more of his work here!

Also an oldie but a goodie! Dresden, Germany is also trending with sound integrated public art on the facade of an apartment building adorned with intricate drains that create sweet symphonies in the rain. The singing house was created by sculptor Annette Paul and designers Christoph Rossner and André Tempel, who all live in the musical home! See more here!
