The aim of the two-stage open competition is to extend and rethink the space of the courtyard of the Palazzo del Collegio dei Nobili and to reorganize the spaces of the Egyptian Museum of Turin, which, on the occasion of its bicentennial, is proposing a broader offer to the public and a greater focus on research, accessibility and inclusion.
Studio OMA’s proposal was judged by the committee to be particularly attentive to the historical research of the city of Turin and the factory, arriving at a project with a broad cultural scope that works carefully with the existing without neglecting the most innovative aspects.
A project that will make a great contribution not only to the museum, but to the city as a whole.
The five finalist proposals submitted by the groups: David Gianotten (O.M.A. – Office for Metropolitan Architecture); Kengo Kuma (Kengo Kuma & Associates); Giuseppe Bove (Pininfarina Architecture); Carlo Ratti (Carlo Ratti Associati); and Jette Cathrin Hopp (Snøhetta), in different ways and with distinct architectural proposals, have stimulated an interesting cultural debate on issues of transformation and processes of architectural and urban regeneration.
The intervention will be completed by October 2024.
