A woven and minimal set of interventions permeate a rather isolated 50's industrial building and point toward another future of adaptive reuse; structures with very little potential.  It is a study of how to accomplish much out of virtually nothing.  As a North American headquarters for an Italian automotive designer, the rich open program allowed for a porosity to occur between spaces.  The sequence of movement is articulated by contiguous formal articulations that relate more to circulation and the relationship of spaces to one another, than their pure autonomous definition.
