XXII Triennale di Milano

Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival

Exhibition

Broken Nature is the thematic exhibition from which the XXII International Exhibition takes its name. The thematic exhibition is an in-depth exploration of the strands that connect humans to the natural environment that have been intensely compromised, if not entirely severed, over the years. By casting a wide net on architecture and design projects, Broken Nature underlines the concept of restorative design, highlighting objects and concepts at all scales that reconsider human beings’ relationship with their environments – including both natural and social ecosystems.

A number of directly commissioned works complement the loans in the thematic exhibition. The commissions include: Accurat, Formafantasma, Neri Oxman e Sigil Collective.
