the new art museum strongoli in calabria is the third coop himmelb(l)au project in italy. the museum is not only a cultural center but also understood as a generator for a future development of calabria, a place for cultural entertainment and recreation.   the art museum is situated on the top of the ‘motta grande’ hill in front of the city, visible from far away. the new museum houses not only flexible exhibition spaces, but also a small multi-hall and a panorama restaurant. the project is a composition of three main elements: the emblematic, cone- shaped construction with the entrance is orientated towards the city, while the cantilevering restaurant at the opposite end of the building offers a panoramic terrace facing the sea in the east. both public attractors are linked by a two storey exhibition volume. the exhibition areas are determined to be as flexible as possible, supported by underground service facilities accessed via two elevators. the project has been initated by carla picitelli.
