Lodi – Italy


Renzo Piano Building Workshop

The new headquarters of Banca Popolare di Lodi was built on a vast abandoned industrial area, near the railway station, contributing to the revitalization of a significant part of the city's urban fabric. The architectural complex contrasts the main volume intended for offices with the cylindrical bodies that house the caveux and the auditorium. An internal pedestrian path connects the covered central square, the porticoes that house commercial spaces, and the large green areas. The lighting project was divided into several levels of intervention: from the urban scale of the street lighting of Via Anelli, of the external car parks and pedestrian paths, to the work environments ( open spaces and management offices ), to the scenographic lighting of the auditorium. The attention due to the problems of energy saving and lighting levels led to the choice of sources and fixtures.
