Chilean architecture studio Pezo von Ellrichshausen installed ‘Echo Pavilion’ inside a Baroque palazzo at the center of Milan as a part of the city’s famed Design Week (April 9 – 14, 2019).

Pezo von Ellrichshausen designed the angular structure as an echo of its surroundings; its polished stainless steel exterior reflected and distorted the historical context in which it was constructed. To balance the lightness of the structure’s glistening exterior, the architects designed a dark interior: Consisting of an unclad steel grid frame that opened to the sky, the internal structure was both literally and aesthetically weighty. With the addition of this mirrored architectural sculpture, the 370-year-old Milanese palazzo warped into itself, merging with the ‘Echo Pavilion’ to become one.
