GAMeC Museum approved!

Bergamo City Council unanimously approved the detailed design phase for the retrofit of GAMeC Museum in Bergamo for a budget of 18M. The project builds on the spatial configuration of the existing structure, while inseriting a new volume which will house the new galleries. Freeing the existing volume and leaving the traces of its physical transformations, C+S Architects establish a dialogue between the old and the new. A new square sets the foundations for the urban regeneration of this part of the city. Thank you to all who have worked on this project under the direction of Carlo Cappai, Maria Alessandra Segantini and Stefano Di Daniel.

DOMUS 1074

We are honored to have contributed to #domus 1074 (pages 9-13). Thanks to Valentina Croci inviting Carlo Cappai and Maria Alessandra Segantini to speak about the retrofitting of the former Palazzetto dello Sport in Bergamo which will be tranformed into the new GAMeC Museum. "The project has the role of urban reclamation. This is not only limited to the 6000 sqm building, but extends to the surrounding space. (...) Art is evolving towards a participatory and emotional use that it is taking it outside the galleries and prompting it to appropriate the street and the public spaces. Architecture has the role of recognising and improving abandoned spaces and retrofitting is a resilient tool to translate the past and transform it into a resource for the community". https://lnkd.in/dnMB9BaX
