The old warehouses of Venice’s customs building have been transformed into the largest exhibition centre of the Pinault Foundation and Tadao Ando restored and modified the lofts in order to create a space able to house the artworks of the Pinault Collection.
The subject of flexibility, so important when lighting a museum, was broached both from the mounting location point of view and from the perspective of the different light distributions of the luminaries.
