Piero Lissoni and his architectural designs, distinguished for minimalist style, high-quality materials, and perfect execution, will be presented as part of the official selection of the 13th Architecture Exhibition at Biennale di Venezia 2012. The exhibitions will open with a press preview August 27-28 and will run until November 25th.
Piero Lissoni is at Palazzo Bembo in the exhibition "Traces of centuries & future steps" with the following project: Maranello Tower.
The project for the city of Maranello makes radical choices with the aim of creating an iconic building with a well-defined geometry. The use of innovative material such a polycarbonate emphasizes the communication function of the building: variously sized cladding panels make up the translucent skin which is interrupted only by windows opening onto the surrounding countryside, while restrained back lighting transforms the building into a luminescent body which at night illuminates the square in front. The quadrangular tower houses the staircase and lift, while the covered panoramic terrace extends perpendicularly along Via Dino Ferrari. This alignment allows visitors to enjoy impressive views which take in the Centro Produttivo Ferrari, the Circuito di Fiorano, the historic centre of Maranello and the distant foothills.
And is at the Giardini della Biennale, inside Padiglione Italia, in the section Made in Italy, with the following projects: the headquarters of Boffi, Living Divani, GlasItalia, and Matteograssi.
