The architect as a bartender.

In this ironic and imaginative video, Metrogramma imagines the architect as a bartender of an open urban laboratory for a different use of the city, where the break for a "super-cocktail" before dinner generates a brand new urban space.

Since "people make places", the routine of various groups of people reunited at a certain time in a certain location make Bar Basso (Milan) the center for a new temporary shared space. The video becomes the occasion for a deep reflection on contemporary relationships and habits as well as on the role that architecture has on modern fluxes of dwellers within a metropolis such as Milan in the year of the Universal Exposition.

The "Superaperitivo" short movie is a project produced by Metrogramma in collaboration with Bar Basso for Foodies' Challenge, a contest aimed at involving the most representative professionals in the field of architecture, cookery, art and fashion in a common research on the theme of food design.
