Green Facade Building

Rimini Forum Center – Multipurpose building

This small mixed-use five story building is characterized by curved facades facing the street, covered with a green skin that evokes traditional ivy-covered buildings.

The façade consists of a lattice of steel to support climbing plants that seamlessly cover the entire length of the building.

The roof gives the building a uniform appearance that is interrupted by only one vertical opening, a deep rift that leads to a back garden.
