Pavilion at Palazzo Litta made from pairs of Blue Jeans

Linking Minds installation in the Palazzo Litta, made from 300 pairs of blue jeans.

The pavilion at the historic Palazzo Litta, created by New York-based office Diller Scofidio+ Renfro, features a canopy out of 300 pairs of jeans.

Deploying the jeans as a ready-made, intentionally mis-using and translating them from the context of the human body into an architectural module. The design exploits the implicit structural logic of the jeans – connecting them waist-to-waist and cuff-to-cuff – to create a tensile, catenary diagrid that spans the open space of the courtyard.
