[expressive architecture: character and narrative driven design]
The Marionette Museum is located at the Campo di Santa Maria Formosa in Venice. It houses a theater, galleries, library, shop, and cafe. The museum was inspired by the Comedia dell'Arte character, Falvio - a lover with a heavy heart. The design focuses on the circulation of the museum, which wraps continuously around the central core, offering glimpses into the heart of the museum - the theater. Faceted panels of the facade push and pull into the building to create varying views into the piazza.
