Pisa Conference Center

‘Piazza dei Miracoli’, the place around the Duomo di Pisa, is often described as the ‘perfect architectural harmony’ place. Adding any new volume in this context would be extremely difficult. The balanced composition of Torre (campanile) di Pisa, Duomo and Battistero di San Giovanni, as well as Camposanto Monumentale, is a complete city-planning ensemble of buildings made through stylistically different centuries but combined with its lush decoration. In this regard, we sought to place the future Congress center as invisible as possible – namely underground, thus without imposing the architectural requirements for its functional height, opposing it to other buildings in the ensemble.
