Visual Arts Gallery
Best Architectural Design for Museum
About the project
The museum will comprise two venues — an open and a closed to be used depending on the season.
The exterior can still be used as a sight-seeing platform and doesn’t in any way affect the panorama of Florence. The top level embraces a light cinema gallery of bare concrete. There, sculptures can be installed, and it also offers shelter from rain and storm to those interested in the view.
The underground level comprises several rooms for paintings display. Portable partitions make the space transformable. The open atrium with a green garden connects both parts and lets light into the basement.
