tangram

Carcere di Lecce | Lecce
2018 - competition

Tangram is the winner of the Archistart 2018 competition.
Second experience in a prison, here we had to design a large movable wall located in a common area. The wall, called "tangram" for its inspiration from the famous Chinese game, is a double-faced infrastructure that can be closed or opened depending on the activities that prisoners have to do: when is closed it works like just a boundary, a border which divide in two different spaces the common area, meanwhile opened it becomes an interactive and fluid wall where people can sit, place stuffs, have a break, read, talk, spend a bit of quality time. Tangram is a concept, we'll be on site soon and finally build this project hoping it'll be loved by all the people inside.
