Civic Offices Bologna
The City Council of Bologna commissioned the construction of a building covering an area of 33,000 sqm to house, at one location, the 1,000 employees of the City, previously distributed in 21 different places in the city. The project aims to redevelop the area and reconnect it to the city center. The design concept is to break a single mass in three blocks intended for various activities.The blocks of different heights are joined by a shading roof, an entrance hall built on four floors and a public space that degrades.The roof has the dual function of protecting from solar radiation and give a sense of architectural cohesion to the whole complex.
