This building was the flagship project for few technology related constructions the client was planning to develop.
The need for a strong image and the very innovative nature of the building use influenced the design and pushed the material selection to explore new combinations and juxtapositions.
The technological nature of the building not only inspired the design but also was the foundation for the architectonic language: most of the patterns resemble circuit lines; the metals and colors recall a computer motherboard; the extremely cantilevered protruding volumes surprise for the innovative look and the ingenious technicality that made them possible.
