COLLABORATORS ELEONORA SORBI, DOMENICO PALATTELLA
PROGRAM MULTIFUNCTIONAL BUILDING
TYPE INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION (MENTIONED)

The beauty and the peculiarity of the Granulati Zandobbi’s products are the main inspiration of our project. The highway is not a boundary, but an opportunity, which is implemented by the construction of a wall along the whale site. The wall is coated with the manufactories of the company itself, and it is shaped when it meets the multifunctional area. An iconic tower, with a “Stone City” billboard on it, is placed in the background of the area and brokes the horizontal linearity. The rear square is the continuation of the inner space thanks to the same stone pattern of the floor, and it is meant for events and meetings. A corner of the square bends upwards to make room for the guard post and the gatehouse, while the outside could be used for all visitors. The rest of the monumental square is designed as a real exhibition area.
