The light flowing in through the windows is strong, dazzling, while the light let in by breaks in the false ceilings is fainter, more timid.
The idea behind the project is avoiding overly invasive signs in an environment destined to house works of contemporary art, creating a simple, essential container.
The new space is intended to be a landmark in contemporary art, providing Turin with a centre playing a role similar to that of Germany's Kunsthallen or France's Centres d'Art Contemporain.
It is meant to be a flexible structure, capable of accommodating artists, critics, curators, collectors and visitors alike. It is a place for development and education, with an auditorium structured on the basis of rising steps, like a university classroom, as well as an internet room and a bookshop.
