PAV. A living art-park in motion

The PAV –  living art-park and experimental center of contemporary art of Turin is an outdoor exhibition site, a new interactive museum, a place of encounter and experience in the laboratory, and research center dedicated to dialogue between contemporary art, nature, biotechnology and ecology, public and artists.

The greenhouse, which is accessed by pedestrian square is the entrance door of the Center, and is made according to the principles of bioclimatic architecture in close relationship with the Park, designed as a green architecture.

Those who wish to visit areas outside, even if only for a walk, passing inside the building may experience a path of environmental art created with multimedia installations.

The PAV is designed by the artist Piero Gilardi, developed with the landscape architect Gianluca Cosmacini and interdisciplinary working group of the Association acPav with the contribution of architect Alessandro Fassi for aspects of bio-ecological architecture.

BIOME is the building that contains the work environment from which it takes its name. It is divided into six environments, set up by the architect Max Venegoni, where are located many interactive stations designed by Piero Gilardi with technological contribution by Riccardo Colella. In the path, in a semicircle, the collection is developed in different environments which contain sensory devices consist of inert materials and living, as well as interactive technological systems.

The Park occupies an area of about 23,000 m2 where, in 2006, was created first, Trèfle work of environmental art built in the territory of the PAV. Outdoors, always under the care of the architect Gianluca Cosmacini, are springing up other projects open air transferrable actively since public (Pedogenesis of Caretto-Spain, La Folie du Pav by Emmanuel Louisgrand and Jardin Mandala Gilles Clément).

The ART PROGRAM, directed by Piero Gilardi and edited by Claudio Cravero, develops through the realization on the part of Italian and international artists of works and installations of contemporary art, permanent and temporary interventions in both the outdoor exhibition areas.
