Officia Museum is a system of corporate museums showing the creative processes of some poles of the Mediterranean. Hence the need to create a new kind of architectural principles free from the traditional design of the museum.
The idea is to have a non-formal, highly permeable and non-permanent structure. The activities are temporary and therefore also the system-building responds in its parts to this character.
The scheme is very simple: it’s composed of steel structure with a 5m module, that is the plot and imprisons volumes hosting various functions. The tube, which wants to break the regular grid, allows the crossing of the two banks and connects all the different activities.
The Officia Museum is designed as a flexible system in which roofs, walls and floors can vary their position continuously with very few constraints. The system is designed in continuous evolution: it can expand, densify, shrink, move or disassemble.
The plot of the system also extends to the urban context and buildings. In the case of buildings, some of poor architectural quality, the plot becomes colors or patterns that involve the context and put in relation with the system.
The public space becomes a dynamic set of modular spaces that can potentially accommodate different activities. Source by Roberto Celiento.
