Gallery building that enwraps the original refurbished Ferrari workshop to form a museum dedicated to Enzo Ferrari

A multimedia display of pictures and films is housed within the nineteenth century red brick house where Enzo was born, with the adjoining 40 metre long double height workshop containing the main gallery space.

Tilted at an angle of 12.5o the double curved glazed facade of the new exhibition space is wrapped around the house. A giant single gallery space, which contains 21 historic sports and racing cars set on slim platforms, is housed under a 3,300 square metre double-curved aluminum T&G sheeted roof. The roof’s curve is supported by a concealed grid of narrow eight-part trusses and, at the museum’s entrance end, by two massive columns that splay into asymmetrical Y-forms.

The entrance area is connected to the exhibition level by ramp and staircase. At the bottom of the ramp, under the shelf formed by the entrance area, is teaching space, an audiovisual room and a conference hall.
