Back to works

Prompted by the potentials offered by the dialogue with a vast public space of monumental quality as piazza Duca d’Aosta and by the proximity of architectural masterpieces such as the Pirelli skyscraper by Gio Ponti and the stazione Centrale by Ulisse Stacchini, we designed a building that could render the peculiarities of the site through an original solution that could mark a strong element of continuity in the historical evolution of the urban form. An array of simple volumes in the three-dimensional space of the city in dialogue with the alignments of the main streets and buildings of the site and which simple textures of the façades are designed with reference with the rhythms and languages of the different perspectives of the city.
