Enzo Ferrari Museum by Future Systems

In 2004 a London based studio Future Systems, founded by the Czech architect Jan Kaplický, won a design contest for the new museum in Moden in the northern Italy. The museum hosts all the exhibition areas in the reconstructed house of the famous racer and entrepreneur Enzo Ferrari and a gallery in a neighbouring new building with an original design by Kaplický. The gallery is a unique combination of the latest construction and energy saving technologies and a futuristic appearance, resembling a legendary racecar.

The vents on the yellow aluminium roof are similar to a huge engine hood of a car. Along an attraction for the tourists they allow a natural air ventilation and bring light into the gallery. Walls and the floor of the gallery blend together into a single surface. A stretched semipermeable membrane covers the roof and distributes the light evenly conjuring up an image of a car interior. On the ground floor a cafe and a bookshop hides behind a bent glass facade, followed by an open exhibition area with a slightly upward sloping ramp capable of showcasing up to 21 vehicles.
