PULL
The Culinary Institude
Fanzolo di Vedelago Treviso, Italy

DESIGN
The Culinary Institute of Fanzolo di Vedelago Treviso,
Italy, despite it’s bold and somewhat contrasting design, is
completely concealed by the Villa Emo from the entrance,
making it a somewhat subtle addition to the site.
Given it’s nature, the culintary institude preserves Palladio’s desired perfect horizon view that extends out and
past the farming arms of the Villa.
Approaching the Culinary Institute from the parking lot
(located on the far rear edge of the estate), the institude
contructed with a glass core, frames the villa and accentuates it’s beauty.
The mammoth building lies on the Villa’s main axis of
symmetry, mimicing Villa’s farm arms and accentuating the
Villa’s symmetrical nature.
Aimed at the villa, the building is designed to posses a
shear that imposes a directional pull on the eye, pulling
visitors towards the Villa.

The tri-partite configuration seems to be based on 3 rectangles. The area where they
overlap contains the staircases; the main axis for vertical circulation through the floors

The central plan is based on a circle that surrounds two perfect squares.The process was
dublicated resulting in a configuartion that demonstrates an exponential growth of scale
derrived from local moments of symmetry.

MODEL EXPLORATION

Explores a strict solid vs void interpretation of the field

Explores the notion of spaces between surfaces creating field

Explores a blurred interpretation of the spacial features of the field

TRANSFORMATION IDEOGRAMS
Once the field configuration had been spacially defined,
and the program introduced, the model was redesigned to
accomodate the institute. The process was documented
through numerous Ideogram sketches.
