Main assumption for the competition was to expand existing City Gallery of Art in Cagliarii. Building with neoclassical façade located in green space of public gardens surrounded by rocky hills manned to get an additional exhibition space, new representative entrance and didactic rooms. Individual functions of building planned to allow elastic disposal of space.
The biggest advantage of building is it’s localization: from one side magnificent view over the city and sea panorama and from the other rocks which gives natural background for structure. Combination of those two aspects was created by green roof open access for people, which became amphitheatre with scene in front of the rocks and terrace with perfect view of the Cagliari skyline.
