CUBo is a community centre and a multimedia documentation centre that the Unipol Group has created to recount its heritage and identity. The project aims to make insurance and banking services transparent by conveying their social and cultural values and their relationship with people’s lives.
All the spaces are designed to convey a sense of serenity and openness. The interior ones have been conceived keeping in mind the concepts of simplicity and concreteness, while multimedia installations are an integral part of the architecture.
The outdoor areas are home to the Installation MEDIAgarden consisting of 41 columns of LEDs, 18 of them arranged in a circle in the main garden. Light and sound are generated in real time and surround the visitor, which is thus immersed into the work.
The project was selected by Unipol in the fall of 2011 and production started in January 2012. The completion of the project was entrusted to fuse* who acted as general contractor. In addition to the architectural design, all software and multimedia installations have been designed and developed by FUSE*ARCHITECTURE.
