folding foyer 


site: naples (italy)

client: le nuvole

design concept
:  after the fire of the naples science centre, the foyer of the galileo 101 theatre was damaged. therefore we decided to develop a temporary solution with a fast deployment wooden structure repurposing a container box. the project is the result of a collaborative process involving engineering  and architecture students. the structural system consists of a continuous roof  which integrates digital manufactured shading cinematic panels.

design driver: light - structural system: folding structure - material system: wood
