Scope and Content

The project series documents Pettena's work for the Nuovo Municipio, a new town hall building in Canazei in Italy, from 1990 to 1997. The project consisted of preserving and restoring a historic building designed by Ettore Sottsass in the 1930s and adding a new construction built in a gap between two sections of the building the two volumes of the building. "Through the glazed connection, the new volume maintains a certain distance from the existing volume and is itself split into two parts, creating in practice a pedestrian intersection between the new and the old building and between the two sections of the new building: a pedestrian intersection that is laid out on two distinct levels." [1]

The project series contains sketches, site plans, floor plans, elevations and sections. It is also comprised of research material, such as copies of building plans by Ettore Sottsass Sr. The project is also documented through proposals and project descriptions, reports, contracts with the city of Canazei, correspondence with engineers, photographs of the construction, and videos of the building. The project series also includes press clippings about the project and an unidentified videorecording.
