▪︎ Implosion in corten steel at the entrance
▪︎ Exterior and interior views with the new structure insertion that generates a mezzanine floor and the access to the roof
▪︎ Cross sections with the corten structure that articulates the building from the ground floor to the roof top
Infiltration Building ▾
Mark is a speculative project based on the reuse of abandoned buildings. Starting from the implosion on the ground floor, it is possible to reach the roof through the sculptural form, in corten steel, that articulates the interior volume by creating a new two story structure, and ensuring the vertical spatial continuity with the new stairs. The design goal insists on a renewed spatiality for the interiors, considering the new insert, in corten steel, as an infiltration: something therefore recognizable from its support but also tied to it. Similar interventions could be designed in saturated urban contexts, as well as in historical environments, where abandoned and residual architectures are still present in several episodes and declinations within today's city.
