Towards a truly sustainable approach to built heritage: Leonora Carrington’s lesson

The magical world generated by Leonora Carrington over half a century ago in The Milk of Dreams, the 59th Venice Art Biennale title, offers a great perspective on the importance of imagination; in the personal sphere as much as in both artistic and scientific disciplines. Architecture, being at the crossroad of the two, can certainly borrow a lot from this notion of the world, in which “life is constantly re-envisioned through the prism of the imagination, where everyone can change, be transformed, become something or someone else”, as the principal curator Cecilia Alemani wrote.
