Sempering; gerund of the verb “to semper”. In architecture and design, a constructive action on a material (zʼɛmpərɪŋ); gerund of the verb “to semper”. In architecture and design, a constructive action on a material or component that leaves a significant trace in the end product. Neologism from the surname of the German architect Gottfried Semper, 1803-1879, author of Der Stil in den technischen und tektonischen Künsten, 1860-63.
A year after Milan’s 2015 EXPO, and more than one hundred and fifty years after the publication of his Der Stil in den technischen und tektonischen Künsten,
what classification would Gottfried Semper put forward to interpret the number of artifacts that today shape our environment, and that cross the established borders of any possible ‘system of the arts’, of any separation in competences and sectors in the design of objects, architectures, landscapes?
In the wider context of the events produced by the XXI Triennale di Milano 2016 International Exposition, the exhibition Sempering, realized in the spaces of the MUDEC in porta Genova, would like to focus the attention on several ‘ways of doing’ of contemporary design, without pretending to formalize a complete geography of them and without separating them into disciplinary typologies. A simple concept is at the base of its choices and its arrangement: the one of a continuous evolution and revision in time of the relationship between means and ends, between ‘methods’ and ‘forms’.
