Ospedale Sant’ Agostino, Modena, Italy 2010 by Carlo Ratti

 
February 1st, 2011 by Susan Smith

The project for Sant’ Agostino was born and developed around a reflection on the main element that characterizes the site: its network of courtyards and open spaces that provide access and a flow of movement through the space. This is articulated in the architectural stratification, symptomatic of the history and evolution of the Sant’ Agostino complex.

The different layers of architecture are an integral and important part of the very soul of this place.

The landscape of roofs is replicated in the terrain of connecting courtyards at ground level. In addition to the system of courtyards and pathways, the approach to the existing monument considers the history and diversity in each reconfiguration of the Sant’ Agostino complex, believing that the different layers of architecture are an integral and important part of the very soul of this place.
