Contrary to our speculation in believing this building to be some form of a tourist spot, it is actually the M&G Research Laboratory in Venafro, Italy. The curvaceous structure actually comprises of frames with tents made of PVC coated polyester stretched across and supported by “symmetrical metal lattice arches“. Not only the shell looking forms are awesome on their own but the thoughtful placing in a pool multiplies the beauty, thus providing a completely rewarding sight [other factors for positioning the premises in a pool are security and thermal regulation].
The interior is a “column free space” which include two separate segments. One part is dedicated to research and production, while the other is for development of processing mechanism. The research laboratory has been designed by Samyn and Partners.
