Sycamore is a multi-disciplinary practice of architecture and interior design, based in Rome. Profiting from the diversified skills of the team that composes the continual collaboration with experts from various fields, combines architectural theory, research, innovation and experimentation with high technical knowledge and professionalism.

Established at the end of 2002 by architect Raniero Botti. Since then, carries out assignments from the preliminary stages of planning and feasibility studies to construction and executive phases with a careful inspection to the construction site in order to make the most out of the architectural project, however, all phases of the project are carried out with great attention to energy conservation and the use of environmentally friendly materials.

We always try to create structures and contemporary design that can convey strong emotions and feelings which they can keep unaltered over time with a high visual comfort.

Museo Neue Nationalgalerie

The concept is born from the desire to relate urban context and new public space through an unconventional architectural language, originated by a ground deformation, like “origami” folds.

The ground breaks away and accept in its fractures the new architecture for the Museum of the 20th Century. The fractures generated by this process become architecture and therefore the new buildings for the Museum of the 20th Century. It becomes a low-rise and partially excavated architecture that redefines urban space by respecting and preserving the historical monuments already present, defining a new profile that can integrate within the Kulturforum without deleting the most important visuals.

The project intends also to communicate with the "urban landscape" of the Kulturforum through the contrast and breaking standards. Like the project area, which, from agriculture, has assumed the modern features of a dense urban space, the design starts from the "earth" and continues in its development of contemporary and nonconformist architecture.
