A Monument for Automobili Lamborghini.
Lamborghini is built to provide a moment of inherent human exhilaration - at the crux between anticipation and satisfaction, driving, heart racing on both sides of a razor sharp edge cultivating visceral effects possible through perfection in engineering of these elements; a deeply familiar, wanted, and cherished human moment defined through unforgettable experiences. It is the machine between the unknown and revelation, passion and achievement, demanding an architecture that embodies what drives the dream of Lamborghini - the dueling elements of the machine.
This monument is a sanctuary to both - the engineering elements of the machine as a monument to the trophy they become. The shell: beautiful and fragile, revealing an emptiness to be filled. The core: elemental and solid, powerful and raw. One cannot exist without the other. The shell: beautiful and fragile, revealing an emptiness to be filled. The core: elemental and solid, powerful and raw. Together they sanctify Automobili Lamborghini.
