The New Italian Space Agency Centre is the winning project of the European competition for the ex Caserma Montello area, in Via Guido Reni in Rome. The project has been developed in the Competition and Preliminary design phase. Three functional strips determine the architectural layout of the Italian Space Agency organizing the fluxes for the internal staff on one side, for external visitors on the other and for the public on the last one.  A smooth band at architectural scale characterizes the facade. Total estimated cost of the building: 13 ml Euro.
