For the FuoriSalone 2018, the magazine INTERNI presents, from 16 to 28 April in Milan, the exhibition-event HOUSE IN MOTION, gathering together a series of experimental and interactive installations of architecture and design, the result of the collaboration between internationally acclaimed designers and companies of reference, institutions and startups.

Having reached its 20th anniversary (1998-2018), the exhibition-event takes place in three different urban settings: Università degli Studi di Milano (formerly Ca’ Granda,16th century) at Via Festa del Perdono 7, Orto Botanico di Brera (18th century) at Via Brera 28 – Via F.lli Gabba 10, and Audi City Lab at Corso Venezia 11, in the spaces of the former Archiepiscopal Seminary (17th century).

With HOUSE IN MOTION, INTERNI investigates the future of the home seen as the space of life, encouraging exploration of new and unexpected habitat scenarios. The visions of the designers, made possible thanks to the expertise and research of companies, are transformed into experimental installations that present possible solutions for the fields of design and architecture.

The idea of the home as the mirror of the soul (The House of Life, Mario Praz) is perhaps no longer so closely linked to a succession of spaces that contain objects, artifacts, furnishings and images, memories accumulated during the course of an existence.
Instead, it becomes an idea of diffused, nomadic, extemporaneous dwelling, where the house taken as a habitat concept rather than a physical space is transformed into a sort of personal extension, a tailor-made habitat made to measure for every person.

Neo-nomadism, coworking, freelancing, cloud computing, frequent travel, retail on the go are just a few of the concepts that identify new trends of life in the cities of the world, and have an impact on the house of man, both public and private: hence reflections on the part of designers to create residential capsules, spaces in motion, places of transit and temporary hospitality, prefabricated systems, emergency shelters, domotic habitats, self-driven vehicles, all the way to the most extreme applications of digital technologies on the frontiers of virtual reality.

The installations bear the signatures of international architects and designers, and are produced with the support of companies, institutions and avant-garde corporations operating on a global level.

As is usual by now, the Audi City Lab, a workshop of ideas and encounters co-produced by INTERNI, will offer an interpretation of the theme with a program of talks and discussions on the relationship between man, technology and innovation.
