NY/ Turin-based architect Caterina Tiazzoldi  teamed up with NY/ Lisbon-based architect Eduardo Benamor Duarte  to create Onion Pinch – a playful eco art installation made entirely from sustainably-sourced cork . Onion Pinch was initially designed as a rest area for the Cais do Sodre subway station in Lisbon during the Experimenta Design Biennial. The swaying onion-shaped structures invited visitors to climb, lay, or rock within them. In 2010 the installation was the set for a dance performance by Arke Danza, which was documented in a film directed by Caterina Tiazzoldi shown at the Architecture & Design Film Festival, and this year photographic documentation of the installation will be showcased at the RISD Biennial  beginning on February 21st.
