Design is the first signal of human intention. Architectural design is a prime example of tangible and intangible connections between matter and spirit. The title of the series is a reference to Arthur Koestler’s seminal book and his concept of holons - something that is simultaneously a whole and a part. This fractal like relationship of architectonic elements is meaningful in different levels of scale and perspective such as “in and out”, “up and down”, or “made up of, and make up”. A single detail of a structure can include within it the essence of the whole building - the “ghost in the shell”. This collection consists of works from the EXPO Milano 2015 pavilions.
