Site Double, designed by Milligram-Office and commissioned for the 2012 Venice Biennale, translates the idea of a single-family house in Detroit (near the Architect's studio) to a Venetian gallery. Site Double, which invokes the Venice Arsenale, creates imagery of an exterior space within the Detroit-sited house by transforming the surrounding city into Venice through reflection. SGH provided structural engineering consulting services for the installation.
