Exhibition "Vivere alla Ponti - Architecture, Design & Industrie"
Following exhibitions in Rome, Milan, Venice, Los Angeles, Vienna, London and Paris (at l’Istituto Italiano di Cultura), the EDF Bazacle Complex welcomes the “Vivere alla Ponti” to Toulouse with the support of the EDF Foundation and EDISON, an EDF Group subsidiary in Italy.
The exhibition gathered unpredicted projects, designs, drafts and photographs from the archives of the Italian architect Gio Ponti’s more than a half century of activity. Similar to his French contemporary, Le Corbusier, Gio Ponti is the founder of Italian design. His style melds classic and modern architecture elements and his projects were audacious for the era with a revolutionary graphic identity, all completed with artistic talent and a remarkable aesthetic that inspired cubism.
