The concept proposal conceived for BASE, the last cultural actor to join Zona Tortona’s developing landscape, aims to define a clear identity in a context rich in visual inputs related to institutions, offices, museums. Much attention is devoted to the entrance, acting as a colorful peacock’s tail in making the access to BASE immediately recognizable from the street: the gate becomes the beginning of a story. The big inner courtyard is revitalized to be an extension of BASE’s interior space as well as a public piazza, open to the whole community; the horizontal surface becomes a canvas to play with optical illusions, traditional Milanese motifs, dreamlike landscapes. Micro architectures and tools organize the space and guide the visitors without limiting their freedom in experience the place.
