Hotels that bring new life to historic buildings, renovating them and reinserting them in the fabric of the city and the society. This is the theme of the exhibition curated by Luca Molinari and Simona Galateo at Spazio FMG per l’archiettura (via Borgognone 27). The show reflects, through three outstanding examples, on the issues of reuse of historical buildings that come back to life and are opened to the public thanks to private investment, without which it would be impossible to restore them. The three hotels: in the heart of Amsterdam, the Arlov Conservatorium Hotel, restructured by Lissoni Associati, which takes over the abandoned spaces of the historic Rijkspostspaarbank of Daniel Knuttel, once the home of the Sweelinck Conservatorium; the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Barcelona, a work by Carlos Ferrater and Juan Trias de Bes (architectural design), Patricia Urquiola (interiors) and F3 paisaje, in a former bank; and, in London, the Town Hall Hotel in which the studio Rare Architecture comes to terms with a delicate situation: the Art Deco town hall of Bethnal Green completed in the 1930s and now protected by the heritage authorities.
