Hydro's Domal brand is presenting "Ferrari Architecture in Maranello," an exhibition that illustrates the effectiveness of combining aesthetic values with sustainability in buildings.
The Ferrari exhibition, which takes place at the "Museo dell’Automobile" in the Italian city of Turin, concludes on August 17. It is open to the public.
The exhibition aims at revealing through pictures, small-scale models, sketches and projects, the work of renowned architects including Massimiliano Fuksas, Jean Nouvel, Luigi Sturchio, Renzo Piano and Marco Visconti.
Visconti, who was supported by the technology of Domal's aluminium building systems, designed the new Ferrari Mechanics and Painting buildings as well as the Ferrari Restaurant, which has just been completed.
The buildings achieve high standards of technical excellence and they have been constructed in a way that considers the well-being of the employees based there. In particular, the focus has been on providing functional work environments, solutions that allow optimum air-conditioning, and overall care for energy efficiency.
For this purpose, Domal developed a special aluminium profile to support Visconti's vision to design an effective bioclimatic structure that guarantees the highest grade of natural lighting and the lowest expenditure of energy.
Domal is also presenting at the exhibition a sample of the façade built with its systems.
The Ferrari exhibition opened on June 30 in Turin on the occasion of the 23rd UIA World Congress of Architecture in Turin, and was one of the main off-site events at the just-concluded global meeting of architects.
