Turin is one of the most beautiful, underrated city in Italy. This city deserves greater recognition.

New Face for Arbarello Square
Turin - District 1 (City Centre)

2 projects are dramatically changing the face of the square...

---------------------------------

1) New Reale Mutua Headquarters

Designed by: “Iotti + Pavarani Architetti”
Status: U/C

The design of the new offices facades tries to establish a dialogue with the context of the surrounding buildings (dated XVIII – XIX century), looking for an integration of material, colors, proportions, alignments...





The building aims to be contemporary and at the same time intimately connected to the place … as if it had always been there, to communicate the solidity and permanence in time, those values that represents Reale Mutua both for the city of Turin which the national scene.




2) New Headquarters of Collegio Carlo Alberto

Designed by: “DAR Architettura”
Status: U/C

Restoration of the former headquarters of the Faculty of Economics of Turin, building from the 1930s.



The project involves the renovation of the spaces and distribution based on the creation of a new underground main hall and the transformation of the existing one in the heart of the life of the building, intended to create a sense of a community of about 200 between professors and international economics researchers.

No. Last year opened the highrise of the "Intesa San Paolo" banking group, designed by Renzo Piano, that is 166 metres high.
Unfortunately these 2 skyscrapers are the only "survived" of several projected (some of them were already approved) but never constructed because of the economic crisis of the last years.
For the moment, these are the only high buildings (I mean more than 100 metres high) in the city, together with the historic Littoria Tower (109 metres; constructed in 1934 and considered the first modern italian skyscraper) and, of course, the symbol of the city, the Mole Antonelliana (167 metres; constructed in 1863).
However, thanks for your interest.

"Torino Esposizioni" Redevelopment Project
Turin - District 8 (San Salvario)

Status:approved

The redevelopment project of the former main Exhibition Centre of the city.



Born with the name of "Palazzo della Moda", it was originally designed by Ettore Sottsass in 1938, but in the decades it has undergone various transformations becoming a huge complex composed by 5 buildings; the most important of the complex's transformations is certainly represented by the work of the great italian engineer Pier Luigi Nervi.



This complex represented the main Exhibition Centre of Turin until 1989 when the most important exhibitions were transfered in the new complex born in the former Lingotto Fiat Factory.
During the 90's it was gradually less used by the city, hosting little exhibitions, some classrooms of the University of Turin and a skating ice rink.
Only a huge event could regive importance to this majestic complex. This happened in 1999 when Turin was named to host the XX Olympic Winter Games. For the 2006 Games, the main pavillion of the complex was temporary transformed into an arena to host some hockey events.




"Torino 2006" represented a turning point. Since then the city understood the real potential of the complex and started thinking about its future.
Now Turin is planning to transform "Torino Esposizioni" into a "City of Knowledge" that includes the new Campus of Architecture and Design for Turin's Polytechnic and the new main Public Library of the city.
21 of the most important architectural firms and engineering companies in the world, including Daniel Libeskind, Dominique Perrault and Stefano Boeri, are in the race for the redevelopment of this jewel.
We will soon know the winning project...!
