From the architect. The New Business Centre for Pescara is the result of integration of two simple elements: a low height building with a punctured plane and the “annular” building sitting on top.

The dynamic three-dimensional structure of the rounded building punches the straightforward structure of the “holed” lower volume, linking the two bodies in a whole element.

Natural light is brought to the office levels through the floor openings. The random position of these apertures creates diagonal views through levels.

The water plane at the sixth level recalls the river Pescara where the city takes its name, creating a perfect place to meet and rest.

These complex establishes itself as icon of early twenty first century architecture.

You know, Fuksas is really growing on me... makes me wonder if I should have taken their non-paid internship offer, ehe...

love the architecture but a minimal bit of color wouldn't have killed anyone.. or maybe it's just the shade of gray that makes it look ten years old already..

Awesome, bold design. The Fuksas really push the envelope sometimes...

Silly rabitt, buildings aren't for people. Who cares about interiors?

ygogolak · September 22, 2009

No interiors?
