The design of the science museum interprets Rome in the most profound sense by working on the principles of maximum conservation and growth by stratification.
The building’s main walkway is transformed into a “public” road that organises the museum into two connected but independent ensembles: exhibition spaces and public city services.
The building takes an ecosystemic approach to the challenges of sustainability through a series of coordinated actions: permeable areas of ground , cool islands for improved ventilation, use of sustainable materials and solar energy installations.
