Totipotent Architecture is inspired by the renaissance architecture of the Tuscan towns and made in collaboration with local artisans from Colle di Val d’Elsa’s crystal-blowing tradition. They were commissioned for Arte all’ Arte and first exhibited in the Sacred Art Museum Buonconvento, Tuscany, Italy. The three architectural maquetttes, presented on a mirror plinth, dialogue with the architecture of the location in which they are presented.
