MULTI-PURPOSE AND MULTI-COLOURED
The multi-functional Ipparco centre, characterised by the presence of a Coop supermarket, is housed in three building blocks, attached to each other. The choice of materials to be used in the development of the complex for the structural part, was oriented towards prefabricated, prestressed reinforced concrete, together with perimeter infill walls made with vertical panels, with visible finished concrete surfaces, which are also prefabricated. Research into the reinterpretation of a lean material such as reinforced concrete, together with the desire to move away from the verticality imposed by using of this type of panel, identified it as the best method to obtain façade modularity with regular rectangular panels by inserting shutters onto the concrete casting floor.
