Eye-catching and breathtaking, these entries highlight memorable exteriors.

Italian marbles are appreciated in the world for their beautiful textures and elegance. The Sound of marble - PiM.studio Architects for Silvestri Marmi project aims to bring out the invisible history of each slab from quarry to processing and to embed it permanently on the surface of the marble itself. PiM.studio Architects record the sound wave produced by the stone-cutting machine and, through a computer-generated script, use the sound wave as a creative agent transforming an initial uniform grid into a beautiful organic pattern. The result is a soft, tactile surface in which the experience and history of the marble is embedded forever in its texture, inviting you to touch it for a sensorial adventure.
