Turin Info Point

Project: UIA World Congress of Architecture Info Point Competition Submission Location: Turin, Italy Year: 2008

Conceived of as a part of the city, the project for a new temporary Info Point defines a new public space within the existing public realm. 
The program is organized in and around a series of independent cubes. The set of volumes aligns with the only non-orthogonal street entering the square, giving them a strong and recognizable presence in the space.
Inhabitable cubes define the boundary of the site and house the main functions. Three of them have opening sides, offering various spatial uses. 
All volumes are made of prefabricated plywood panels, the largest requiring on-site assembly due to their size and weight.
