Filippo Ferrarese for Lampoon
Inspiration came one night in Milan while I was waiting for the bus, and the Bocconi campus was in front of me. The building was wrapped with thick wire mesh but, during the night, this casing disappeared. It became possible to see what happens inside the illuminated rooms and classrooms. I returned to campus several times, at different hours, to disclose the multiple faces of this giant translucent object. The building’s transformation was enchanting both in the daylight and at night. During the morning, it appears impenetrable and closed to the outside, but at night, it begins to show what happens inside. In reality, mornings are less likely to reveal the most secrets; the night, with its darkness, does the trick
