An ambitious master plan for Expo 2015 was developed to revitalize an industrial zone outside the city of Milan. In the spirit of this plan, a competition was launched for the design of a pavilion to exhibit the virtues of Italian culture while in a second life, adapting into a research facility. Interpreting the criteria of the brief, maintaining openness at the ground was essential for access and a perception of transparency. The translation of this criteria gave birth to a building that contains a series of spaces stacked one over the other, in some places projecting over the piazza by varying degrees, connected through a loop of continuous circulation.
