Custore is an experimental project of exhibition pavilion that explores the areas of parametric architecture, used for the commercial market. In this project we had to deal not only with the aesthetic issues of computer-generated sculptural forms, but also with practical problems associated with the execution of the project inside a commercial building, and – most importantly – with the real clash of artistic forms and commercial market guidelines.

Our proposal for the Italian Pavilion at the Milan 2015 Expo is a light cage where the technical innovation is embedded within the structure: revolutionary glass columns sustain traditional slabs clad in marble. The building is simple and elegant in its structural system. Marble and glass are intertwined expressing the Italian architectural tradition of proportion and elegance.
Nature makes its way through the thin marble: tress are allowed to grow tall through holes in the slabs, recalling the central role of nature in a healthy feeding culture. These holes let the light from above reach the ground level where the covered plaza stands. The latter is trimmed by a thin water layer which creates small “islands” and a mirror-like surface. Water and shadow cool down the temperature of the plaza so offering a shelter from the sunny space before the circular pond at the end of the Cardo.

They consist in four two-storey linear buildings that contain various exhibition spaces, market and restaurant and the Italian Pavilion itself. This had to be develop in a square area of 57.5 meters side and a maximum height of 25 meters. The Palace was supposed to represent a symbolic message of representation of the beautiful country and we wanted to develop it according to the following concepts.

Inhotim Centro de Arte Contemporânea is located in Brumadinho, a village near Belo Horizonte, the capital of Minas Gerais state. A personal initiative of the mining industry businessman Bernardo Paz, the museum has an unusual architectural concept. Instead of sum up all its installations into a unique building, it is composed of many pavilions spread out in a park of approximately 35 hectares.

Cutty Sark is one of the worldâ€™s most famous sailing vessels. After being decommissioned, the historic clipper ship has rested in a dry dock in the centre of historic maritime Greenwich where it served as public museum. Grimshaw Architects in association with Youmeheshe Architects and Designers were commissioned to design a cutting-edge visitor centre within and beneath the ship as part of a 27 million pound conservation programme that required closing the attraction for a complete restoration overhaul.

In Dallas, Texas, the Department of Parks and Recreation is working to replace several decaying, minimal 1960s shelters in the surrounding metropolitan public parks. Sandwiched between a community soccer field and playground, this simple pavilion embraces a passive, natural cooling system that becomes one with the spatial design.
