    Polish installation at Triennale Milano – ‘Greenhouse Silent Disco’

    On the occasion of the 23rd Triennale Exhibition of Decorative Arts and Modern Architecture, Poland will present the ‘Greenhouse Silent Disco’ installation prepared by the Adam Mickiewicz Insitute and the Museum of Architecture in Wrocław. The display will be available from July 15 to December 11.

    The Triennale Milano is one of the most important international events dedicated to design and architecture. This year’s theme is “Unknown Unknowns. An Introduction to Mysteries.”


    “Greenhouse Silent Disco” installation fits in with the Triennale’s theme through references to romantic notions of sensual, bodily experience of nature and empathising with it. The project was inspired by the research carried out by the prominent plant physiologist Professor Hazem Kalaji of the Agriculture and Biology Department at Warsaw University of Life Sciences, who developed a method of monitoring the condition of individual plants and entire ecosystems.



    “This is what Greenhouse Silent Disco is all about: a greenhouse with digital sensors which record plants’ reactions to certain impulses, such as human touch or changes in the weather, transforming them into sounds,” the official website of Triennale Milano Exhibition writes about Polish installation.

    “The 23rd International Exhibition is conceived as a space for open and plural debate and comparison, where different experiences, cultures and perspectives can converge. Unknown Unknowns. An Introduction to Mysteries tries to answer a series of questions about what we still “don’t know we don’t know” in different topics: from the evolution of the cities to the oceans, from genetics to astrophysics. A deep experience, which involves designers, architects, artists, playwrights and musicians, and that gives the opportunity to overturn our idea of ​​the world,” we can read on the official website of the Triennale Milano Exhibition
