A tactile maquette inspired by Palazzetto dello Sport, built in Rome between 1956 and 1958 by the architect Pier Luigi Nervi.
Plexiglass disks and wires recreate the structure and its aestethic and mathematical principles in a conceptual way. The dome pours his load on a foundations ring: wires follow the route of the forces and simulate the ceiling texture.
Here a description of the building www.archidiap.com/opera/palazzetto-dello-sport/
The project was exposed in MAXXI, main art contemporary museum in Rome, in the exhibition “Pier Luigi Nervi. Architetture per lo sport” from 5th February 2016 to 23rd October 2016.
The maquette was part of an inclusive path for blind people. 
In collaboration with Centro Sant'Alessio and Federazione ProCiechi we designed tactile board to support a well-rounded overview and comprehension.
