Domus - - PROJECTS -

Gym­na­sium. Dante Bini patented his con­struc­tion method for thin con­crete shells as “Bin­ishells.” His test­ing grounds in Castel­franco Emilia were known as fungàia (mushroom field), be­cause the domes sprung up like mush­rooms. In this gym­na­sium, three large domes, each with a di­am­e­ter of about 32 me­tres, merge into one.
