PALERMO CENTRO MULTIFUNCIONAL

PALERMO MULTIFUNCTIONAL CENTER

The proposal for the new business center of the Sicilian Region makes landscape-territorial dimension the founding element of the project idea. The heart of the complex is represented from the Garden of Sicilian Landscapes, a primordial “Pangea” of ​​the territories of the region, able to synthesize the very rich biodiversityof Sicily within a courtyard. This large botanical garden operates with the triple function of a structure serving the neighborhood and the city, an oasis dedicated to the quality of the workers’ spaces and an attractive element for visitors.

The built volume, with its annular shape, constitutes an urban backdrop able to mediate the relationship between the internal garden and the surrounding area. Three generous openings, framing the peaks of the mountains surrounding the “Piana dei Colli”, establish a visual and allegorical connection between the business center and the regional territory.

Project team:

Marina Mazzamuto Giulia Orlando and Carmelo Ignaccolo (urban and landscape design team) with Warehouse of Architecture and Research, GICO studio, AM3 Architetti Associati (architecture team), SWS Engineering (structure design team) Bio Project Group (sustainability team)
