Funeral Chapel in Turin, Italy by Raimondo Guidacci

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Article source: Raimondo Guidacci

Planning a funeral chapel means designing a building with a strong symbolic value means dealing not only with the place where it will be placed, but especially with spiritual values. Planning a funeral chapel, is how to design a small monument, a small church. In the design of the chapel to St. George Canavese, all this adds another element represented by the fact that it was to renovate a chapel trying to preserve the existing profile.

This field was set on a pedestrian square, in front of a church, in the city centre of Torino for the Architettura in citta Festival. This installation is composed of eleven “proteiforme” wooden sculptures partly filled with soil. Although each sculpture seems to share the same DNA, they are all unique.

Tosetto, Weigmann and Associates in Turin, Italy by MARC

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

Article source: MARC

MARC is commissioned to transform an elegant mansion from the beginning of the 20th century into an efficient contemporary office building. To do that it needs to perform radical and pragmatic interventions, optimizing the use of space. At the same time, it is necessary to respect the existing rooms and preserve their charm, but without being intimidated by their cold classicism. The project looks for discretion and neutrality while inserting all the many necessary new elements. Like the new staircase in perforated metal -the trigger of the typological change- that connects seven different levels illuminating them with a big skylight.

House in Mathi, Turin, Italy by MARC

Transformation of a few barns into a house/studio and more, Mathi (Turin, Italy)

The client decides to leave his nice apartment downtown Torino to move his family to his hometown, restoring a big shed, little more than a roof in ruins, adjacent to the little house he restored with his wife in the years after their wedding. It is a long-time dream, for which he is eager to invest most of his resources. After interviewing several architects, he asks MARC to design a special house, irrational, for his whole life. MARC decides to accept this responsibility with the client’s same honesty and passion.

Domino in Turin, Italy by MARC

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Article source: MARC

A big web-marketing agency moves into a conventional four-story building out of the city center. It promotes a contest among design offices, asking an architecture able to represent and strengthen the identity of its immaterial work, without relying on predictable cyberpunk or – worse – high-tech languages. MARC wins of the contest with this answer: the needed architecture is… restoration. The necessary immateriality is achieved literally, subtracting material from all the thick layers that had hidden what gradually reveals to be a decent building from the beginning of the 20th century.

Article source: Cino Zucchi Architetti with RecchiEngineering and Proger

The current museum complex, designed by Amedeo Albertini in 1958-60, is comprised of various bodies, the main section of which, a convex 114 meter façade faces onto the Po river and Corso Unità d’Italia. The  competition brief stipulated the addition of a new wing on Via Richelmy and the reorganization of pedestrian and vehicular access, keeping in line with the latest developments of museums in Europe. The new museum, with an expected annual attendance of 250,000 people, accompanied by significant conference and educational activities, will thus become a driving force in the urban renewal of the southeast quadrant of the city.
