The Luigi Pecci Centre is an artwork institution located in Italy that promotes the showcasing of creatives work in specifically temporary and contemporary fields. This initiative is showcased in the design of the space that utilizes a rather unconventional coiled aesthetic in a platform that sits raised above the ground.

The art centre acts as a central hub for emerging artists and their works, allowing visitors to explore the space and discover new talent. The building is shaped as a large-scale ring that is built over the previous unit's design, to combine both old and new architectural feats. The coiled portion houses the artwork while the older main floor is where the bookstore and public gardens sit.
