Isola Community Centre Competition

MWAI's international competition entry for the design of a new community centre/event space in the “Biblioteca degli Alberi (Library of Trees)" park located in Milan. The project proposes a glowing "giant tree" structure which hovers above the ground and creates a new marble piazza with a café and oversize chess board.
The translucent, light shell consists of flexible and reconfigurable spaces of various sizes and a gallery circulation around the perimiter, all cantilevering from a solid timber trunk.
