Casa Rana is a foster home for fifteen HIV-positive children and their mummy. The building structure is composed of two monolithic concrete slabs, the floor and the roof. Within them, five colored boxes are freely disposed to contain all the required functions. The space between these boxes provides common and distribution areas. Colored small volumes stretch out from the wide roof as skylights and chimneys for natural ventilation, looking like construction toys. The entire building is enveloped by a bamboo curtain, which creates shaded areas between indoor and outdoor spaces. [IT] Casa Rana è una residenza destinata ad ospitare quindici bambini sieropositivi ed una mummy che si prende cura di loro. La struttura si compone di due piastre orizzontali in cemento che fanno da pavimento e copertura. Tra di esse sono liberamente disposte cinque scatole colorate che accolgono le diverse funzioni. Gli spazi restanti diventano comuni o distributivi. Corpi colorati emergono dal tetto fungendo da lucernari e camini di ventilazione, restituendo l’immagine di un gioco di costruzioni. L’edificio è avvolto da una cortina di canne di bambù, che crea un diaframma ombreggiato tra interno ed esterno. Collaborators Pasquale Bianchini, Rossella Cincotti, Luca De Felice, Cristina De Gennaro, Luigi Della Morte, Adriana Raguso, Saragina Salino, Silvana Scarati, Nicola Serra.
