Pace Art Gallery
The gallery is located by the slope of the range.
A yellow box lift up in the air connects to Terra St. through a bridge.
It’s a way that goes far ahead, reminding us that art is an endless flow.
The internal space is white, filled with air and light.
The lighting restates the idea of a luminous environment: reflected lights and the avoidance of bright spots and hard shadows.
The staircase is the compositional principle, inside and out at the same time, which offers a clear path and sums up the dimensions.
