Italian Culture Institute - Lerici Foundation

1954 Stockholm (Sweden)

Participant
Pier Luigi Nervi, Ture Wennerholm

Ponti published in Domus both the model and the actual construction of this building, together with the modifications it had undergone. Of this building, built in a foreign country, he was pleased that people said, unexpectedly, it is Italian. The building is another example of Pontian finite form and of his principle of isolating not incorporating the out of scale part here, the large auditorium, with roofing designed by Nervi. Ponti's collaborator on this project was Ture Wennerholm.
