Among the noises of our overcrowded cities, the flows of the building where the exhibition is located, between the work, leisure and residential spaces, almost undiscovered, the vestiges of the natural landscape appear, or what is still rescued from it, imagined and intervened by man, which invites us to immerse ourselves in small fragments of our memory. That transition between the public and the private spaces, between the natural and the built, between the most intimate and the exposed.

The public restrooms design, is organized axially in an entrance that culminates in a plane with a circular window, which as an “oculus”, reveals the creativity and poetics of the Artist Julia Romano:

….“The central element is the landscape and the intersections between the natural and the created, questioning even what we consider natural is not actually the result of a cultural artifice; It is an ecosystem in which what is apparently real is nothing more than an illusion, or is a compound of both. This work shows how the same territory, with each new look, can be configured to transmit a different landscape. The shape of the world is what we give it”….

The entrance space is flanked by blocks of urban massifs, taken to a level of rigorous geometric abstraction, with the intention of reminding us of the circulation between pedestrian passages escorted by tall buildings that direct us to the urban block hearts, which appear as a oasis among the chaos of the city.

Accompanying the volume of the large central oculus, on both sides, rigorous, glassy, luminous grids of frames are organized that function as disaggregated catalogs of the complex natural entity discovered in the oculus, in an innovative taxonomic reformulation. With the gaze of the botanist, the geologist, the zoologist, the artist and countless disciplines we weave a reinvention of the fragments of the landscape’s gaze, recovering the elements that our memory then reminds us of when we see them, almost as if it could transport us. in time, and experience it again.

The experience of accessing the bathrooms is slowed down by a menu of stimuli, transforming the usually mechanical sequence of hygiene into an unexpectedly slow walk that awakens you to connect with the memory of the built landscape, real or imagined. The public restrooms design becomes a surprising oasis, as happens in some blocks in our city, where the noise of the environment fades into an escape into a haven that brings us closer to a life connected to our senses, emotions and memories.
