5+1 AA Architectures, Headquarter of the A.S.I book presentation


by Francesco Zanchi

In occasion of the Salone del Mobile 2014, 5+1 AA Architectures, Alfonso Femia and Gianluca Peluffo, presented the monograph of their project for the Italian Space Agency (A.S.I). The project for the Headquarter of the A.S.I unites the different functions, which very until then separated in different spaces, in one singular building which is developed, one could say, as a small city itself. Many smaller units are connected one to another by voids enriching the dialog between them. Darker, more intimate spaces ere in contrast with brighter and more colorful public spaces in a way telling  to the observer the story of the transition from outer space to the earth. The journey from these visually silent spaces to the brighter and noisier ones is very clearly illustrated by the beautiful photographs made by Ernesta Caviola.
