The temporary nature of the center clashed with a traditional solid architectural renovation. Rather than integrating the design content into a new polished space, we understood the roughness of the environment as an element of contrast to play with. Once we had established a critical distance, the old tiled walls and concrete counters created an interesting dialogue with the exhibited design pieces and the new furniture of the school. All the “hardware” - functional surfaces (tables, stages, benches) and new partitions – seems to emerge from the context, materializing into piles of bricks and rubber curtains that are strongly connected to the imagery of the old market. The “software” - graphic panels and physical models – instead hangs from the ceiling on multiple planes, detached from the containing walls, creating series of visual overlaps and conceptual dialogues between the different projects and the building itself.
