Lungo le Corde, also known as "String Along", is an interactive room made of four framed walls and eight shutters, all hand-notched and woven with string at varying spacings. With the expertise of Kevin Haley from London based firm Aberrant Architecture, we took a common architectural language (door and window shutters) from the town of Riva San Vitale and designed an engaging installation in which the residents can enjoy.

With a budget of 500 hundred Swiss Francs, one week for design development and construction, and Italian-English language barriers when proposing the installation to a town meeting, this period was a moment in where we professionally worked in groups from start-to-finish of an architectural project.

Lungo le Corde allows visitors to view the lake and mountains from a framed view, whether that's through the one-inch spaced woven string on the framed walls or eighth-inch spaced woven string on the swinging shutters.
