This building was the fruit of a public competition open to Ticino architects. The winning proposal was based on the idea of two walls that would be parallel to the access street but also to the valley, and therefore to the river, the cantonal road and railroad, and the highway. Indeed, the framework of the plan necessarily adapted to these strong lines that cut through the entire topography of the territory by proposing two parallel exposed-concrete walls on the perimeter. The façade facing the valley was intentionally designed as a massive wall with small regular holes to function as a sound barrier against noise from below. The interior of the building houses various administrative offices along with a meeting room and a formal reception room. The somewhat “expressionist” glass elements highlight the two most representative rooms of the building, the Town Council Hall and the Municipal Hall.
