by Museo Alessi and Anna Pitscheider

In The Tea & Coffee Towers project, 20 architects who used to work mainly in urban scale, were asked to design a Tea and Coffee Set as if it was micro-architecture. This project was presented at Venice Biennale in 2002. In this documentary the Architects describe their experience of answering to eight standard questions about the method and process they went through.

At the end, an experiment with Sensory Memory was proposed, asking them to switch from the conceptual to an intimate sensory level. They re-lived the realization of the object they created but this time by remembering with their senses: “close your eyes, have your set in your hands, feel the dimension, the material, the temperature, the weight, the way it opens... stay with it. “

Several years have passed and although the world of design is constantly evolving, the reflections made by the authors are still valid and interesting.
