Comenduno, Bergamo - third prize
The project starts with a typical-morphological research. The environment of the City of Albino has an impressive quality of urban texture and open spaces; this quality finds remarkable examples in historical architecture. The new volume has a three-volumes free interacting articulation, creating a courtyard open towards south/south-west, looking at the hills on the other side of the valley. The open spaces setting is like a “teaching park”, where different native species can be found: it becomes a botanical heritage both for the new complex and the whole Albino community. Between the two wings of the project the roof of the gym and the permeable wall are green treated.
