The Barilla Pavilion, sited in parallel to the access axis of Pedrignano Industrial Complex – and consequently to Autostrada del Sole –, has respected and reproduced the compositional and sequential orthogonality of the existing buildings, highlighting its presence in the territory.

We conceived the Barilla Pavilion as a large Box of Events surrounded by transparent closures, and environmentally protected by a roof made of large eaves and sheds that support glazed photovoltaic panels.
 
Permeable to visual perspectives, both internal and external, the Barilla Pavilion presents itself as a friendly and extrovert building that values the landscape and integration with the environs.
 
This conformation is comprehended as a stimulator of encounters, coexistence and interaction, as a way to promote and instigate the most diverse possibilities of cultural, educational, experimental, gastronomic and artistic manifestations.
