Competition of ideas – a new structure for services – Brescia

The multipurpose building of the competition of ideas of Largo Formentone starts from the analysis of the urban context and the desire to create a dialogue with the seniority of the area. The building, located at a central point of the city, contains within it a reading room, a study rooms and relational spaces for students, offices for the Urban District of Trade and an information point for citizens and tourists. During the design it was essential to take into account the concept of sustainability, the optimization of the energy consumption and the containment of heat loss. For this reason the building during the day and throughout the year, interacting with the external environment, modifies its features to reduce energy consumption.
