feeling/’fi:lin/filling dARCHstudio took part in the exhibition “Delicious Architecture”, during the Salone del Mobile exhibition in Milan(April 16-21, 2008), organized by the Chicago Athenaeum (Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture , Art, Design and Urban Studies).

dARCHstudio designed on paper an architectural folly that can be translated into another medium, one that happens to be edible. The designed object can be seen as an ephemeral construction in everyplace, a furniture , a jewel or an edible cornet, in proportion to it’s material and scale.

After Milan, the exhibition travels to Paris, London and New York.
