Mark 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.
