FROM THE ARCHITECT

Lingoto Center  was designed and intended to be an offices building. Nowadays a private university is ‘sheltered’ in its premises.

Placed on a narrow and long parcel this object wants to express with its movement ‘matter, “physicality” and “sensuality”. In turn this movement is as an adaptation to the context and the objects “hitting” it on both sides.
Its floors plan is conceived as an open space, to unify and extend the work surface, placing work stations at the edge and in ‘touch’ with the nature.

The aluminum foil brise-soleil enable the shading of the glass facade but also the materialization of sunlight during the day, from sunrise to sunset. Transparency and permeability of these brise-soleil, make this object light, but at the same time emphasizing more and more his corporeality.
