THE LIFT

Still of "THE LIFT" Installation View at BLITZ, Valletta, in the exhibition Maltese Confabulation 2013

THE LIFT documents the life and functioning of the new lift at Upper Barrakka Gardens, Valletta, designed by Architecture Project, over the course of one entire day. Linking sea level and city level, it constitutes a firm yet gentle presence in the dry ditch that separates this 16th-century fortified town from the mainland, while changing its aspect at the same time as its twin cabins move people relentlessly along the powerful landward fortified walls. Life takes shape in, around and with the lift.

THE LIFT was commissioned by Architecture Project Malta
and projected at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2014.
