• House of Memory

    CULTURAL CENTRE, MILAN, ITALY - 2011 DESIGN TEAM: 2A+P/A (Gianfranco Bombaci, Matteo Costanzo) MODEL: Marco Galofaro - Modelab This project represents the overlap of several functional levels designed to allow the life of the city to permeate it completely. The project’s functions include a public square with a conference hall at ground level surmounted by archives, exhibition spaces and two floors of offices with different layouts. It is a naked white structure in which a mechanical staircase joins all of the floors, thereby connecting a sequence of public spaces inside the building, from the ground floor to the exhibition floor to the panoramic terrace. The building is designed as a place in which it is possible to share information and memories as a means of enhancing the city’s sense of community and collective identity.
