SELECTED WORK SAMPLES

- 2016 -


HELLO,

I'm Alessandro Colli, an Italian architect graduated 8 years ago, after studies in Milan and Madrid. I've spent the last years working for archit e c t u r a l f i r m s i n M i l a n , N e w Yo r k , B e r l i n and Beijing. Last year I decided to return to Milan to follow a personal project that kept me busy u n t i l n o w. I like strategic design and contamination between disciplines, my curiosity in managing creative processes helped me gaining international experience on a wide range of design fields and scales. This is a selection of projects i've been working on during the last years.

Best regards, Alessandro Colli

TEMPELHOF A I R - PA R K A project for an active landscape, working with unplanned and temporar y forms of appropriation.

design: anOther Architect location: Berlin, Germany year: 2011 status: shortlisted - 2nd prize client: Senate Department for Urban Development surface: 400 ha role: Designer during the 2nd phase of the competition: research, development of the shortlisted concept, coordination with web design consultants, producing diagrams and presentations for intermediate reviews with client and final submission.

Tempelhof airport stopped operating in 2008. The project has been developed for the Tempelhof Landschaft Competition, held by the city of Berlin to define its future use. The area is very close to the city center and with its 400 hectars is planned to become one the biggest park in Europe. The approach has been defined around the fact that, since its reopening to the public, the airport has been used by Berliners as it is, in self-organized and creative ways. The design strategy leaves the airport almost untouched, proposing to place by 2050 the required amount of housing units along the borders and to leave the central field open to be developed around "pioneer" structures proposed by citizens. The design is based on the development of the area around three main elements: - the axis are a productive landscape, an extensible system used to produce energy and recycle water for the park and the surroundings. - the green horizon is the boundary of the park and aims to balance nature and urban development. - the satellites are acupuncture interventions on the central field, specific functional attractors in a large open space. The proposal aims to trigger an active and sustainable landscape, linking ecological, economic and social issues and working with unplanned and temporary forms of appropriation by the user. A digital mirror image of the real park on the web makes possible a direct participation of the users in the development and maintenance of the landscape.

N O VA R T I S SHANGHAI R&D office building part of the new Novartis Research Campus in Shanghai.

design: standardarchitecture location: Shanghai, China year: 2011-2013 status: completed client: Novartis surface: 8200 m2 role: Architect during Design Development, focusing on Interiors, from concept to on-site mock-up realisation, coordinating with local architects and contractors. Technical drawing up to 1:5 scale, custom-made furniture design development, products selection for tender.

The design is structured as an organic cell grid that generates a system of courtyards at the ground floor and an open plan office space at the other floors. The ground floor consists in a system of rooms of different sizes organized around courtyards and covered paths: here are placed functions dedicated to the whole campus and complementary to the typical working space, such as a conference room, a boardroom, a teahouse, VIP offices, private meeting rooms, convenience store and non-territorial working spaces. The typical floor consist in a open space organized around five structural cores and small glass meeting boxes. The 6-storey office building is portrayed by open and flexible working space, which supports interaction and creativity. An origami clad staircase connects the basement parking lobby to the sixth floor by passing through the first floor lobby, the main office floors, and, finally, opening onto a sixth floor roof garden. This open link between all office floors will encourage chance encounters and interactions to ensure a dynamic working environment. In plan, the helical central stair is extruded from the same voronoi pattern that shapes the five main building cores, acting as a porous sixth core.

GAOBEDIAN C R E AT I V E PA R K A series of inter ventions for the conversion of a disused industrial complex into a creative hub.

design: studio O location: Beijing, China year: 2014 status: under construction client: GIRI International surface: 50.000 m2 role: Senior Architect, Concept to Design Development. Concept/technical drawing production and design team coordination.

The project is located in a 50,000 sqm industrial area south-east of Beijing, just beside the 5th ring road, where large trucks hangars and dismissed garages are being converted into working spaces. The proposal is centered on the conversion of existing structures emphasizing their historical character and avoiding the "tabula rasa" approach that has been ruling chinese real estate market during the last decade. The design is a combination of minimal interventions on several buildings focusing on: - flexible maximized layout, reconfigurable according to the market; - addition of semi-private spaces blurring boundaries between interior and exterior, in order to improve light conditions and add social space; - coordinated material palettes in order to revalue the location preserving its own language; Each intervention aims to answer to these goals, each one using a different design strategy.

MOREL MILANO A feasibility study for the conversion of an historical industrial compound into a collaborative working space

design: Alessandro Colli location: Milano, Italy year: 2016 status: submitted client: Morel & C spa surface: PLOT: 6820 m2 GFA: 4350 m2 role: Creative director, Concept to Schematic Design and Feasibility study. Coordinating consultancies, design team and liaising with client. Technical drawing and illustration production.

The project is a feasibility study for the conversion of an historical industrial compound in Milan into a collaborative working space for a community of innovative design practices and artisans, engaging their approach to production and supporting practitioners working in the areas of art, technology, and design. Morel Milano is a framework for the development of innovative production: the workspace provides a sociable and serviced work environment dedicated to support the whole creative process: learning , testing new ideas, making new products and sharing their story. The design aims to re-organize the layout of the industrial complex converting eight indipendent buildings into a system of "rooms" grouped into two main clusters: - The Ring: a service ring surrounds the productive core, acting as a filter and hosting the most public activities. Users will have access to the services and the opportunity to use these spaces to relax, investigate or organize events for self-promotion. - The Incubator: the central cluster is dedicated to creative production. It will host collaborative workshops with shared facilities and offices for short or long term rent. The landscape defines the link between these entities and is organized by a system of small courtyards at the ground floor and a vast rooftop: -The courtyards will work as outdoor extensions of the rooms, generating a system of small gardens dedicated to specific adjacent activities, merging outdoor and indoor workspace.

consultants:

-The rooftop will act as a productive landscape, mixing gardens, light structures and smart devices.

WOMEN 3rd Edition, brand identity and website design

design: ALASKA location: Beijing, China year: 2015 status: realised client: Crossroads Beijing role: Project leader, Concept to Completion. Coordinating design team and liaising with client.

The first edition of China Women’s Film Festival (CWFF) was organized in 2013 in 3 Chinese cities. It was the first event of such a scale focusing on film and women issues in China. The 2nd edition, organized a year later, beat over 70 entries to achieve 2nd place in the Austrian Intercultural Achievement Award attributed by the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Following the success of the previous two years of the festival, the third edition was held in Beijing from 19th to 27th September 2015, touring in the following months to 6 other major Chinese cities. The brand identity project was realised playing with a specific side of the topic of the festival: celebrating and discussing together, no matter which gender or age, women’s condition. The word “Women” in Chinese means “us”. That’s why the all graphic project revolves around the third Chinese tone placed above the O. This graphic element gives the meaning to the title of the 3rd edition of the festival and to the whole branding strategy.

RED-BRICK DESIGN SHOP Interior design proposal for the Red Brick contemporar y art museum

design: Alessandro Colli Virginia Chiappa NuĂąez location: Beijing, China year: 2011 status: submitted client: Red Brick Museum typology: private commission

The Red Brick Museum is a contemporary art museum, recently built by a private fundation in the outskirts of Beijing. The project is a proposal for the addition of a bookshop, which wasn't considered in the original design brief. The approach focuses on the design of flexible installations on wooden platforms, working as programmatic islands in a given big open space. The display-furniture around the main platforms is designed as an inventory of recombinable devices that gives the layout the opportunity to be easily adjustable according to new requirements.

L I VI NG I N T HE CI T Y OF T HE DEAD

C.01 - Experimental

A L Q A R A FA An alternative strategic masterplan for the inhabitated necropolis of Cairo.

design: Alessandro Colli Maria Luisa Daglia location: Cairo, Egypt year: 2008 type: Graduation project surface: 12 km2

In the central area of Cairo there is one of the largest and most ancient islamic necropolis in the world where, since the end of the 19th century, war refugees, rural immigrants and homeless people fled from all over Egypt, living among tombs, monuments and renowned mosques. Today the “City of the dead” is considered the 19th slum in the world by number of inhabitants and although the exact amount of residents is still uncertain it is believed that more than 600,000 people are living there. Despite the presence of infrustructure, several public services (schools, police stations, medical centres and postal offices) and better living conditions than in other parts of Cairo, what makes al-Qarafa being listed as "slum" is the uncertain legal recognition to be inhabited. A large amount of people live in informal blocks built between tombs but most of them live inside "hoshes", ancient typologies of funerary chapels where a courtyard is sorrounded by walls and rooms. Sometimes they illegally occupy the tombs, but it often happens that residents and owners agree recognising to the tenant the role of hosh’s guardian. The lack of local recognition of social and architectural value of the City of the Dead gives right to the endemic state of environmental abandoning and to a series of Programmes of urban “regeneration” which are menacing the demolition of wide sectors of the necropolis. The project aims to develop a strategic masterplan as an alternative to the "tabula rasa" & "re-allocation" approach, proposing an acupuntural development of the critical nodes that could trigger a participated development of the area, focusing on the development of a synergetic system integrating architectural preservation with social, economical and envronmental issues.

DESCARTES 2.0 an exploration into sustainability with the help of social media

design: anotherArchitect location: Paris, France year: 2011 status: submitted client: Atelier Lion Transsolar role: designer: concept development, research, producing diagrams and presentation.

You can only improve it if you can measure it! Descartes 2.0 proposes to utilize user generated data available through social media services for a sustainable urban design process. The urban development of Descartes masteplan is a long term process which might take several decades.  For such a long period, it is very hard to predict urban demands and trends. Thus a design process must be flexible and capable of reacting to changes during every design phase.  People using social media services leave traces and data that are accessible to everyone. For the first time in history this enables urban planners and architects to access real-time data on the behaviour of people in cities, allowing them to judge urban interventions.  Developing a method for how social media data could be used in order to measure urban design would allow a development such as Descartes to be much more successful in terms of social sustainability. If a sophisticated method of existing-data analysis is in place, it could even be used to predict necessary urban interventions.

TWEETx an Interactive wall at TEDx talks in Hamburg

design: anotherArchitect location: Hamburg, Germany year: 2011 status: built client: Red Onion role: project architect, concept to completion: concept development, coordination with client and consultants, super visor during installation and event. url: https://vimeo.com/25979710

The TWEETx installation visualized tweets containing specific keywords by continuously scanning and filtering Twitterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s data stream. The selected tweets were represented on the LED panels as dynamically moving bubbles that sought like bubbles carrying the same keywords. The idea was to create a shared and engaging experience that encouraged people to actively debate a subject. Twitter comments influence graphics in real time The installation was based on a generic software platform that searched for keywords within a tweet and combined it with metadata (tweet-user, time code, geolocation, language, etc.) and then visualized the findings on the basis of a custom real-time graphical engine. During the conference, the installation searched for #TEDxHH, #TEDx, speakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; names and language of the tweet. As people posted comments about the web-streamed event, the lighting system reacted to specific parameters such as language, geo-location, and volume of Tweets. The data, which is usually invisible, essentially created a live window on the data layer. Tweet bubbles: The conference host encouraged the audience to tweet during the conference and as immediate feedback, the audience experienced a visual representation of their tweet move above them. The tweet bubbles, portrayed in bright colors to indicate language, traveled across the LC panels above the speakers. Here they grouped in relation to keywords which gave insight into the communication and activities within Twitter. The slowly growing groups of bubbles gave an indication of the most popular keyword over time, and were articulated by the host, who also disclosed how many tweets each group represented during breaks.
