The Bubble heliport

Turin, Italy

Iconic bubble-shaped heliport on the top of the Lingotto building. Since 1916 this complex used to host Fiat’s automobile production, the largest at time. At the end of the Eighties the architect Renzo Piano won the competition held to plan a renewal of the historical site, which now hosts malls, a convention centre, hotels and offices. On the top of it, the characteristic bubble-shaped heliport made of steel and glass dominates the panorama.
