2007 / Bassano   < previous index next >
  An invitational competition organized by Renzo Rosso, Claudio Bonotto and the Mayor's office in Bassano. Bassano is a small town in the Veneto region of north eastern Italy. April was among three international firms invited to participate.
The brief asked for three proposals; renovation and reconfiguration of the Ponte Nuovo bridge, a museum for a Fluxus art collection, and an overall urban scheme. The propsal for the old bridge was a new exoskelton that would support new pedestrian connections, illuminate the old structure, provide a gateway to the city, and to support the growths of ivy that would eventually coverd the frame completely.
  The jury's decision has still not been announced.
