Feshane Modern and Contemporary Art Museum




Istanbul – Turkey


Gae Aulenti Associates

This old 19th century factory, once used for the production of fezzes, is now divided into two parts: on the right there is a section dedicated to temporary exhibitions, while on the left (which is partly spread over two levels) there is a space used for permanent exhibitions and general services. “Semaforo con Palio” projector lamps, fitted with very low-voltage halogen bulbs (produced by Fontana Arte) and positioned on the collar-beams of the building, take care of both the ambient light and the direct lighting of works.
