Item description for Massimiliano Fuksas: Ferrari Research Center by Massimiliano Fuksas...
The Ferrari Industrial Complex, an extraordinary campus devoted to designing and testing Ferrari cars, has been testing some major design changes of its own. World-renowned Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas's new research center, built between the wind tunnel and the mechanics' building, will now host the offices of Ferrari Technical Management. Its rectangular bamboo forest and ground-level reflecting pool are meant to offer a micro-climate for "the realization of a dream." The floor plans, construction photos and renderings collected here suggest that Fuksas has succeeded, as does a shot of a crowd of Ferrari-ans in dark suits filing up one of the building's apparently unsupported staircases in a line, while one of their number bolts joyfully, blurrily, past them to the top. This book, with its yellow endpapers and metallic-red-edged pages, succeeds both in capturing Fuksas's work and tapping into readers' intense interest in one of the world's most recognizable luxury brands.
