FONDAZIONE CRESTI

Siena, 1995

A contemporary architecture made of organized paths with stops and starts, which give a sort of perceptive continuum which has a connecting with the contemporary art collection that the building hosts.

The architect Andrea Milani refers to this space as a “large interior space that has the formal characteristics of a real square, with the presence of architectural elements such as the tower and the gray wall that look out onto it as elevations”. (…) “The recovery of the Tower is a true architecture inside the architecture”.

The element opposed to the tower is the kitchen made of steel.

These two elements are opposed as ancient and modern, as external and internal.
