Aragonese Castle Cathedral

Ischia, Italy
3rd Prize

The double skin expanded brass cladding, reconstructs the missing shell of the dell’Assunta’s Cathedral and reproposes its original spatial enclosure. The old and the new remain recognizable, maintaining their own identity.
A zenital lightwell drips into the apse confering it an unequivocal sacred dimension. The proposed circular drum, covered with a glass, protects the stuccos from the weather.
The light penetrates, it’s disseminated indirectly, in a reflected and mysterious way; more than any other material, it determines the volumetric effects of space, and creates the atmosphere. Golden, despite its immateriality light is converted into architecture.
