This Museum Doesn’t Have ONE Exit


February 5-10, 2017. The Delft University of Technology and ISI Florence joined forces for the Design Workshop Issue #5.
This year’s topic was the redesign of an exit for the Uffizi Museum. The brief used ideas from the 1998 international competition: Architect Arata Isozaki’s controversial project won. Yet, it still remains unbuilt.
The workshop was the opportunity for twenty-one students from Delft University of Technology – Heritage and Architecture and the ISI Florence architecture students (Marywood University and University of Maryland) to share ideas and visions about planning in historically characterized contexts.
While working on their designs, students found themselves in a unique space to share thoughts, styles, and techniques with peers and tutors from other schools.
