The Italian pavillion project for the 11th China International garden expo of Zhenghou symbolically assumes the shape of a butterfly synonymous with lightness and change.
The project issue is the renovation of a rural building in the Alps near Ivrea, also known as “La Torretta”. The medieval building can be traced back to the type called “case-forti”.
The project can be considered as an extension of a private house, located in a pre-mountain area, by the insertion of a new architectural volume operating as a solar greenhouse.
