Museum as a work of art: a sculpture in bronze
Concept: Contrast between the simplicity of the shape of the pedestal and the standing over sculpture whose shape inspired by the concept of the Mobius strip, has been realized through parametric processing. The shape by bending on itself creates external and internal environments and makes the building permeable to the surrounding environment. The continuity of the surface and the dynamics that are created between the interior and exterior, create fluid spaces, that intertwine without a beginning and without end, to infinity, as it resembles the shape of “eight” calls at the same time, some steps of the Tango.
New concept of the internal distribution : the walls, floors and ceiling are no more distinguishable but constitute a single surface dynamic.
Idea of sustainability: natural lighting and ventilation system, use of materials with low environmental impact, insertion of new green spaces, screening systems that can guarantee the control and the gradation of the level of natural light and its refraction and diffusion to building interior.
