FONDAZIONE EMPAM

CONSTRUCTION / ARCHITECTURE

The intervention on the four facades tries to maintain the existing structure while creating new architectural themes. This allows the transformation of the building. The terraces run around the whole building creating a visually strong continuous band; at the same time it creates movement and flexibility to the prospectus, thanks to its scattered distribution. The terraces are located in a different position on every floor and this disposition creates an interesting range of variations in the facades, besides contributing in bringing light into the building’s working spaces. The vertical carrying bodies show a clean contrast with the horizontal stripes which contribute in giving a strong character to the principal façade.
