summary This paper presents the structure and outcomes of a noteworthy journey of a 4th year architectural design studio at Oklahoma State University which approached the challenges given by intervening in the immense and silent spaces of Torino’s mid 1880s built Officine Grandi Riparazioni delle Strade Ferrate, or simply OGR, not merely as an excuse for providing students with the right constituents to propose though-provoking design aesthetics, but rather as a process integrating knowledge of culture, history, tectonic, material, and technology to successfully find that “difficult middle ground between personal expression, respect for the past” and genius loci.
