Verde in Comune, Competition for the Municipality building
Tolentino 2009, with arch. Cristiano Bernardi, Francesca Guidoni, Francesca Praghi
With the new Municipality building for the city of Tolentino the architecture finally loses its volumetric aspect and gains the shimmering vagueness of vegetation. The new architecture shows with strength its character thanks to the south façade which also is the most visible one with its continuous three stores high green curtain.
The vegetation is the protagonist of this building, with its infinite hue of colors that change passing through the seasons
