HUB Leonardo

Palazzo delle Stelline, Milan, Italy
May 2015

Built.

Four new pavilions in the Magnolia courtyard of Stelline Palace and one in Piazza Santa Maria delle Grazie. 

The volumes are the regular platonic solids illustrated by Leonardo da Vinci for Luca Pacioli, sort of set preparation for the exhibition about Leonardo in the main volume. The tetrahedron contains the bookshop and the ticket office, the Esahedron hosts the bar, the Icosahedron gives space to children’s workshops, the Rombicuboctahedron is the info point in the famous plaza.

All are dematerialized with light and bright materials or textures as pure graphic scenic machines.
