SHORT DESCRIPTION

Detailed Structural Design and  Work Supervision of the Building obtained by flooring a double-oriented net of wooden arches. Spreading over a 40x60m rectangular plan, the structure hasn’t any columns in strict sense and the wooded slabs at 1st, 2nd and roof levels are completely sustained by the arch grillage and the steel staircases.
