SANT’ERASMO

For the Expo 2015 this city is renewing its status as
a laboratory of modernity, and still today, if we look
a little further to include the lagoon, the amniotic
liquid from which it was born, it has a lot to say on
contemporary trends towards sustainability, and the
biological and ecological vision of the city fabric.
The agricultural and rural environment is used
as the basis for innovative operations that create
new models in food production and distribution,
hospitality, education, research, art, the relationship
with landscape. This injection of knowledge and
innovation is necessary to guarantee the continuing
existence of the rural dimension and reinvent a
model for the future.

CANALI VILLAGE

Borgo Canali is a new way of thinking the
territorial development that is based on the land
naturalization as an important instrument to avoid
the ground consumption. The area is an example
of “agricultural desert”, an intensive monoculture
mechanized system typical of the Pianura Padana.
The proposal for an agricultural and environmental
regeneration of Borgo Canali is the first case study
of Reggio Emilia and there will also be some high
quality housing units constructed with sustainable
aims, prefabrication advanced techniques, ecological
compensation systems and low emissions production.

- controlling land use and re-using existing buildings;
- defensing ecosystem services;

BROLETTO OF INNVOVATION

The
project
for
the
incubator
“broletto
dell’innovazione” and the redevelopment strategy
for Via Bovio aims at establishing a new relation
between the city, green areas, urban society and
working or research’s spaces. Three consequential
parts create the logic and the content of this project.
The first one defines the public spaces and the paths
that orient and emphasize the buildings. The second
action concentrates all the activities into one single
building, to minimize the ground use. The third
strategy clears the ground floor space of the building
that becomes a semi-public square that connects the
building with the new Via Bovio and the natural
environment of the north river.

CRYSTALLINE

The project’s aim for the energetic requalification
of HÖFDABAKKI 9 offices, is to re-establish a new
relationship between the building and the nature.
With the new park and a reflecting pool it is possible
to merge buildings and environement and improve
the area’s quality. In addition a glasshouse would
increase the wellbeing allowing a relationship
between users and the surrounding, during winter
time. Inside the space is characterized by modular
elements to create a variety of areas of interest or
situations in support of working activities and to
garantee flexibility and durability easily disassembling
materials and parts. A new cladding would renew the
image of an exhisting landmark, recalling the aurora
borealis, taking advantage of solar heating.

OFFICITY

The OFFICITY idea is based on a detailed analysis of
the Hippostalo office building and its relation with the
urban context. The intended main transformation lies
in the changed meaning of the work environment; a
critical transformation from a ‘workplace’ into ‘a space
for work’, reactivating those external relationships
with the outdoor reset by the ‘Taylorist’ notion. The
‘Workplace’ is then transformed into ‘OFFICITY’; an
open space that exempts from self-contemplation and
helps to rediscover some lost relationships in the urban
environment. The new offices explicit the possibility
that voids are articulated by flexible devices, not
partitioning because the change is lurking. ‘ACTION’
for us is the principal criteria for space management.

The aim of this big open space is to sight the volume

SAN SIRO TEMPORARY MUSEUM

The project of “San Siro Temporary Museum” is an
important part of the strategy program for the whole
San Siro Stadium. It is supposed to receive the visitors
of the museum outside the construction site during
the requalification’s works. The identity of this
temporary structure is related to its flexibility, both
spatial and constructive. It has been realised through
the repetition and the movement of modular
panels. These single blocks, similar to containers,
are organized around a court on two levels, with a
perimetral gallery and a double high space in the
middle.

SPORT PARK SAN SIRO

The reorganization project for the area of San Siro
Meazza stadium starts from the necessity to redefine
the spaces that come from the new metro lines of
Milan.
Around the parking area, divided by functions and
uses, this proposal locates a public park to be used
by the neighborhood and also for the spectators of

In this way it would be possible to integrate the

2.Due to its flexibility, the project allows the composition
of differentiated users;
3.The presence of micro modules permits the
participation in the final layout of the apartment;
4. The extensive use of wood permits the activation of the
complete production chain that within the Milanese area;
5.The project foresees the creation of a protocol of

ACROSS CHINESE CITIES- BEIJING

“Across Chinese Cities – Beijing” an unprecedented
investigation into the Chinese capital’s spatial
program woven into its ‘otherly modern’ project
(Hay, Double Modernity, Para-Modernity, 2008) which
situates its traces by taking the historical district
of Dashilar as a case study. In making resonant
the sedimental knowledge of archetypal and
architectural past throughout the city from the early
1600s, the exhibition therefore looks at processes of
continuous adaptation from times present and past
which remain paradigmatic for many contemporary
cities like Beijing.
“Across Chinese Cities – Beijing” is a conversation
between built forms and communities around an
architecture of resilience and relationships unique to
Beijing and the Dashilar area.
