The line where the architectural design develops, ideally follows the contour lines of the landscape and create a composing line, which winds along the slope of the hillside.

The project involves the creation of a building that can create a dialogue with the landscape through the integration of the built with the nature element. Its integration with the orography allows an important relationship with the outside view. The architectural project, represented by a single formal sign, that envelops the hill in the center of the valley, get a dynamic flow, through which the different functions required by the program take place.

In the history man has often used the hills to place the buildings on their top, to get the best view and to control of the valleys and on the farm areas. The same approach can be used also on the contemporary buildings although the need of the defense now is not a need, preferring a building on the hillside and let free space for crops in the flatland.

The design of the water systems starts from the existing paths, creating a bigger water volume divided in two parts: one higher, just in front of the activity area, have a filter and panoramic role, and a lower one, just in front of the main hall of R&D center, have a naturalistic and role.
From the top view can appreciate how the buildings systems embraces the hill at the center of the valley, giving it a strong effect and peculiar meaning.

The panoramic viewpoint on the top of the hill have a particular emphasis, allowing a complete vision of the area in his complexity; as well as being the architectural and visual reference for the two main direction lines, from the city and the airport.

The activities are developed in sequence along the line of the project. A series of distinct areas, public, semi-public and private, in an important relationship with each other and with the surrounding landscape.

The roofs system integrates roof gardens, paths with panoramic promenade, the main road for electrical car and the access to the buildings at the top.
