Museum of contemporary art,
London 2002

This building does not follow the contemporary trend for assertive and sensationalist architecture; instead it manifests itself in a linear form.

 

Significant to the design is a volume configuration similar to that of a typical northern-Italian factory or workshop: a long shed, 9m high, stretching horizontally on one level for 130m.

 

Slender glass slots, cut into the long south facade at regular intervals, break the monotony of the roof beam.

 

The total exhibition space of 1100m²; Other spaces: a 150 seats conference hall, a bookshop, lecture room, restaurant, internet room, bar/café.

 

2003 Gold Medal award for Italian Architecture at the Triennale in Milan.
