Biella - shortlisted
“The surgeon looked up his eyes, keeping a straight face - are you ready?” This is the story of a dying architecture put under the reflectors (of an operating theatre) and submitted as the only one and last frontier for the architectural trial. The curiosity toward this reality moves from its condition of being a waiting space. Her aptitude for transformation reveals itself into the ability of absorb and to be absorbed. The strategy of the project is part of this change process, rising from a strong dreamlike clash. The natural purpose of a urban prosthesis is to take care of the territory: substitute a part of territory through an artificial device ora complete a damaged part of it; insert a foreign component into a dying organism which live feeding itself of its decadence and memory and which growing into it, to rebirth like into a contemporary miracle.
