eBO – Exhibition pavilion

A projects for the city of Bologna

This pavilion, built in the heart of the historic center of Bologna in Piazza Re Enzo, is the entrance to an underground space housing the exhibition of projects for the city.

Two oval pavilions, clad with a curved glass facade combined with a series of Plexiglas tubes lit by colored LEDs, take on the appearance of two glittering drops. The pavilion was removed in 2005 by the city administration then in office.
