Bartlett tutors’ exhibition explores the history of an architectural treehouse
18 December 2018
'Casa Sperimentale – The Treehouse' by Sabine Storp and Patrick Weber will be exhibited from 17 January as part of the 100 Years of Bauhaus celebrations in Germany.
On display until 03 March 2019 at Weissenhof Gallery in Stuttgart, the exhibition explores the history of Casa Sperimentale, a spectacular concrete treehouse located in a pine growth on the fringes of Fregene, a seaside town near Rome, Italy.
Built over a period of seven years by a family of Italian architects including Giuseppe Perugini, his wife Uga de Plaisant and their son Raynaldo Perugini, the Casa Sperimentale is now in a very fragile state and may soon be beyond the point of repair.
Sabine and Patrick’s exhibition will look at the (hi)stories surrounding the creation of this amazing masterpiece and speculate on the reasons for its demise.
