Created by Atelier Berger-Milà (architecture studio) and The Street Society (creative urban agency), Carta Infinita is a participatory workshop aimed at unravelling the sensitive ecology of a given territory through a
multidisciplinary urban exploration.

This sensorial exploration is undertaken by a multidisciplinary team
of artists, architects, graphic designers, urbanists, photographers,
illustrators and cognitive science researchers.

The intention is to develop a new methodology for urban analysis and
mapping, applicable to other places and territories, by combining a
broad spectrum of different means of interpretation of space.

The participants, with their own expertise and outlook, explore the
territory through a social and spatial lens in order to draw a subjective
map through various means of representation.

Each of them collects sensorial clues (sounds, objects, images,
drawings, materials, etc.) which are then transformed into a live and
performed cartography open to the public. Throughout the workshop,
from collection to curation, participating teams are encouraged to
actively engage and exchange with the local community.

French Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition
30 September 2018, 10 am – 4 pm

A group of visiting experts from different disciplines, the temporary occupants of an ancient military base Caserma Pepe, departs for a sensorial exploration around the Lido of Venice and contributes to the heart of the project with their findings, with the objective to create an open collective map and guide of the territory.
A fragment of this diverse transition of knowledge, initiated by the artists Julia Borderie, Eloise Le Gallo and a curator Ekaterina Shcherbakova, at the French Pavilion reflects the conceptual framework of « Infinite Places » while cogitating on how to reconstruct a site elsewhere using body, artefact, line and word. A series of protocols developed together with all the participants of the dérive forms a semi-choreographed performance focused on a ecological and economical approach to the gathered information. Coalescing map making and the ritual, it aims to open a doorway into a nomadic infinite place.

Worshop – performance

Pour cette seconde édition de Carta Infinita, le groupe de recherche mené par Gemma Milà (Atelier Berger Milà) et Alice Cabaret (The Street Society) proposent la création d’un Atlas-vitrine au sein de The Window. En collaboration avec la chorégraphe Catherine Baÿ (The Window) ainsi que de Julia Borderie, Eloïse Le Gallo et Ekaterina Shcherbakova (Points-Bascule), les indices collectés par les participants seront mis en scène au sein d’une cartographie performée.

La collecte d’indices débutera à l’espace The Window, rue Gustave Goublier, pour ensuite s’étendre au territoire du 10e arrondissement. La rue Gustave Goublier est ouverte en 1827 sous le nom de ” passage de l’Industrie ” entre la rue du Faubourg-Saint-Denis et la rue du Faubourg-Saint-Martin. Il est divisé en deux par le percement, sous Haussmann, du boulevard de Strasbourg-Saint-Denis. La partie comprise entre la rue du Faubourg Saint-Martin et le boulevard de Strasbourg devient plus tardivement la “rue Gustave-Goublier”. Ce changement de nomenclature (passage > rue) révèle une mutation de ses infrastructures, son architecture, ses activités et ses fréquentations. A travers leurs différents points de vue, les participants s’interrogent sur son statut et ce qu’il révèle du 10e arrondissement.
