Gazoline in Cuneo, Italy by Duilio Damilano

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Article source: Duilio Damilano

The design of a service station is a strong reference to the idea of travel, short or long-distance routes interrupted only by a few stops and then back on the road. A break for refueling, or just to stretch a bit ‘legs before continuing his journey. With the same continuity, the service station is separated from the asphalt like a ribbon of road with the engine and wrapping around itself, creating a temporary volume to accommodate the traveler.
