Home at Arsenale - A Curated Library Addressing the Notions of Home and Dwelling


This text explores the evolving concept of "home" in our society and how it can provide a meaningful life beyond basic survival needs. The curators' approach to architecture emphasizes social positioning and user experience. A site-specific wooden structure becomes a library and compact dwelling, inviting architects, artists, and curators to live in it for a day and share their experiences with a selection of books dedicated to homes and housing. The goal is to build a specialist library for the benefit of visitors and ultimately relocate it to the Museum of Architecture and Design in Ljubljana.
