Architecture
Italian term or phrase: nastro di soppalco
Avendo scoperto la natura del fabbricato si è voluto rivelare l’ambiente come grande spazio per suggerire e renderne visibile il massimo sviluppo, come un nastro di soppalco che gira dappertutto.

From one of those v. trendy design articles. Anyone got the foggiest what they're on about? thanks.

Explanation:
My interpretation is that it refers to the edge of a mezzanine floor which curves and winds all over the place (in plan) such that it resembles a ribbon. How to translate it? ...like a meandering mezzanine floor that winds all over the place like a ribbon?

Thanks Russell. That's basically the conclusion I came to, but I thought maybe there was a more scientific explanation, obviously not!!
