ME

I’m currently attending the University IUAV of Venice, curriculum “Landscape Architecture and Sustainable Design”. I’m attempting to further my education outside of my academic experience through an internship in the professional field of Architecture. I passionately believe that an internship in a foreign country will stretch my wings as an architect. In turn I believe that my abilities will be an asset for any firm. I’m a self-sufficient worker, a quick learner, an attentive listener, a costantly growing spirit.

Landscapes of Production and Waterways Carpanè (VI) - Italy ------------------------------Part I - Masterplan for the industrial city of Carpanè

The project faces the problems of designing for areas heavily transformed throughout history, in response to different ways of defence, use and management of water and their use for productive activities. This requires a sequence of cognitive acts aimed not only at the understanding of stratification and ways of sedimentation of human actions and artefacts, but also highlighting the processes, balances and conflicts that are evident in the planned or taking place changes, both in peripheral and urban areas. The city, agricultural and production land in relation to waterways and coast places are in fact the places where nature and culture coexist in various forms, but also with powerful contradictions and conflicts to which an integrated project of architecture for the landscape can give an adequate solution.

The training programme of the design course was located in the second half of the first year in Master Degree, curriculum “Landscape Architecture and Sustainability”.

THE WATERFRONT OF THE RIVER BRENTA Over the years the area has been frequently hit by floods, whose impact was devastating because of the lack of adequate safety distance from the river, from industrial buildings built during the early years of the twentieth century. The landing on the river will be managed by floating docks, providing flexible use for humans and boats, as well as resilience to seasonal water.

FOOTBRIDGES: Relink The City The village is characterized by the strong presence of a regional road, which splits the town into two parts, one on top and one at the bottom near the river. The road is busy with trucks, and constitutes an obstacle to the free movement of inhabitants, since the city is characterized by a dense urban structure. We have selected three main points of crossing, to return to the city the relationship between mountain and river. In addition to the reconnection of urbanity and landscape, pedestrian bridges will serve as devices for the economic revitalization of the city. They will form: a south city gate with information point and drop-off point towards a wellness area, a commercial connection between the railway station and a new traditional handicraft center, a pedestrian track between various sport activities spread between the quarry and the river (climbing, mountain biking, rafting, canoeing, etc.).

Landscapes of Production and Waterways Carpanè (VI) - Italy

---------------------> Part II - Restoration and re-use of the Guarnieri hydroelectric plant

3

The area is one of the most important and ancient pre-industrial complexes of the river Brenta with a significant number of layers that represent the phases of the manufacturing and industrial place in the history of the valley. The hydroelectric power station of the early twentieth century has foundations partly based on the river’s rocks. The complex is still characterized by the storage reservoir for the penstocks and the esplanade that once they crossed.

INTEGRITY MAPPING AND RESTORATIVE MEASURES The ancient artifact shows a high architectural quality, through the richness of the patterns, decorations, choice of materials and design in eclectic style. The hydroelectric plant is in a state of disrepair caused mainly by a lack of functional reallocation during the last decades. After the decommissioning of plants and mechanical parts, the use of the complex has been uneven. Most of the damage was due to the state of disrepair of the roof and the eaves, causing problems with water drainage, mainly affecting the claddings. There were no major structural damage thanks to the thickness of the walls. 28. North and south elevations (metricrectified photomerges), showing damage mapping hatches. 29.

LANDSCAPE DESIGN OF THE CONTEXT The project aims to re-establish access from the street level to the river, reorganizing a bank deeply layered by human modiďŹ cations and by the action of the river. At the same time we aim to foster the historical aquatic vocation of building in relation to water. At the same time, the project returns the readability of the urban palimpsest, through a process of simpliďŹ cation.

The reallocation of functions is put in relation to other construction projects for the revitalization of the city through the masterplan. The choice was to create a wellness center with thermal baths. The project has a deliberately disruptive character, trying to curb the decline of the building itself, of the city’s economy and the loss of mountain traditions. The ethereal volume breaks through the building, to emerge on the roof terrace, strengthening the role of landamark towards the valley, reduced in recent decades to a question of dimensional presence.

The town’s industrial past has left large unused buildings, due to the inability of the site to compete with the new models of production. However, for its economic revitalization the city must rely on artisan traditions that are common to the entire valley. A cluster of industrial buildings has been chosen to become a center for vocational training. The complex will host: offices and workshops, warehouses, exhibitions, a hostel for the participants, a canteen.

The path leading to the various services traces the historical course of the canal that fed the power plant, representing an ideal link between the past and future production. Site ground floor plan: 42. Workshops 43. Exhibitions 44. Hostel/Offices/Canteen

Farmstays near the MOSE’s inlet of Lido Punta Sabbioni (VE) - Italy

The academic work is part of a larger landscaping project on the system of dams and levees to protect the city of Venice, the MOSE. The huge project of hydraulic engineering is changing the landscape of the lagoon. Its presence is not limited to the bulkheads sunk in the sea, but consists of huge earthworks, drainage, reinforced concrete on the sides of the inlets, reservoirs, canals, and new roads. Some of the waterfronts have been compromised by large dams and barriers, such as the entry of Lido, near areas with strong tourist vocation, containing camping and accommodation. These places must necessarily look for other possibilities to avoid the otherwise inevitable decline of tourist presence. Fortunately, these are areas with an excellent agricultural tradition, characterized by a wide variety of vegetable crops, and a landscape dominated by the typical greenhouses. Given the particular diďŹƒculties of transport and communication, the Venice lagoon has a natural

2 3 1 4

tendency to produce, sell and eat food locally, with a Km Zero - like approach. On the other hand, the agricultural landscape has a growing fragmentation and loss of land, with houses no longer linked to the management of the ďŹ elds, but also physically isolated from them through fences. To promote tourism we have designed educational farms where vacationers can interact with farmers and learning how to grow their own foods, as well as eat local dishes. This will increase the presences regardless of the seasonality, ensuring a resilient and competitive economy.
