The Mirror Market

1° PRIZE

A mantle of mirrors extends over Piazza Roma, generating a vault in motion thanks to the play of reflections of light and colors that are projected onto its surface.

As in the sets by Josef Svoboda for the “Traviata degli Specchi”, the roof will be the reflection of the entire square, staging the colors of the market, the movement of children playing, the life of the city that is found in its square.

A skin that changes, which adapts to different situations. Mirror of lights and colors during the day, placid lantern during the night. A skin with a thousand facets and infinite reflections.

The proposal is aimed at redeveloping the square through an architectural element (the roof itself) which, thanks to its language, can give identity to the space and become an identifying and characterizing element of the place, blending harmoniously with the existing surroundings.
