Contemporary art factory

Il Molino

Design Proposal

The project propose to restore and reuse the old Pardini Mill as a contemporary art center. As brutalist building, we think it is better restored then demolished. The Mill already is connected by train and has a big square surrounding. The three buildings will be connected with bridges to the different levels depending on the functions. Two building will be left with the original exposed concrete, the thirds one will have his cladding removed and changed with a metal bronze cladding. All three building will be enclosed by glass boxes on the top and will host gardens with each a different functions.

The buildings will host a contemporary art museum, artist residences, conference areas, cinema, restaurants, bars, area for workshops and studios.
