Shed #18, inaugurated in march 2019, hosts various leading and innovation and research oriented companies, like Ask Industries, Bema/Elettric80, Grasselli, Studio Alfa, Webranking.
The Shed is 174 meters long and 40 meters wide; an essential structure of Reggiane’s landscape, it is a reminder of their commercial and operational apex.
A complete restoration of the former Boiler Department building was carried out, including processing residues, mural writings, imperfections. The integral conservation contributes to bring out the iconic role of Reggiane workshops as historic-cultural asset and witness to city’s heritage and history.
Inside the outer shell, new volumes have been added, mainly used as offices and laboratories, created by juxtaposing wooden blocks, which combine with terraces, overhangs and bridges to draw a landscape of physical relations that leads residents to a necessary collaboration, thus embodying the philosophy of the Innovation Park and of knowledge economy.
