Critical review of studies on the representation of architecture and use of the image in science and art


“XY digital" is an active and dynamic container of accredited information, selected in the belief that the deepening of knowledge is based on intelligent comparison between different disciplines. It is the right place to exchange ideas concerning the new frontiers of project design, the relationship between graphic science and the multiple fields of knowledge and the connections between visual studies and cognitive processes. Not only a publishing project, then, but a cultural initiative aimed to weave interests and skills.

  • Alessandro Goppion

    Imagine with your hands

    Interview by
    The long image critical reflection that Alexander Goppion, creator of fascinating exhibition equipment in museums and in the most prestigious galleries in the world, offers us at XY is quite provoking.
