In 2004 the project by Future System won the international competition for the design of the museum.
The project comprises two separate spaces and interventions: the renovation of the house where Ferrari was born and the new building which recalls the design of racing cars. The shape and technologies used allow the new volume of the museum, with its sculptural yellow roof that matches the background color of the team logo, to become one with the existing structure.
The museum is the result of the futurist vision of Jan Kaplicky’s architecture, with his continuous experimentation and his ability to engineer complex structures. The technologies used in constructing the roof, the building structure, as well as the aesthetics and the creative concept behind the entire project, are taken directly from automotive engineering. The film is a good description of the project, for example the technologies and systems used for the double-curved facade and curtain wall.
