REDEVELOPMENT OF TANKS OF SILKWORMS

The project consists on redevelopment of tanks of silkworms in Farra di Soligo, small town near Treviso, in the nord-east of Italy. The idea was to insert the new building into the farm landscape surroundings, without disturbing the human overview of the fields. The client has requested a pubblic showroom for the new plant of the factory, where everyone can see the sector’s new technologies.

REDEVELOPMENT OF ASYLUM OF FOOLS The plan consists on redevelopment of asylum of fools in Racconigi. The idea want to stress the importance of pedestrian, in a city where except for the downtown area, is not considered. The new project put in the middle of the agricultural area, a large pedestrian zone, where there are several socio-economic activities.

TRIESTE

REDEVELOPMENT OF THE PENINSULA OF SAINT ANDREW

TRIESTE


URBAN TEXTURE CITTA’ SATELLITE The expansion of the city is bounded by two natural factors such as the Sea (blue stretch) and Karst (green line). As a result of the high population density in the city center, characterized by numerous business and social attractions, they have developed small satellite town by the significantly lower density.

URBAN TEXTURE: PORTO NUOVO The new port, which developed only after the final shift of port activities of the old port, has a “mixed”organization: a regular mesh distributes the accesses to the sheds in front of the rail, ensuring maneuvering space for machinery, while in the area of Lloyd (characterized by the presence of dry docks and warehouses of carpentry), the road tissue loses its regularity, arranging buildings according to the needs of the industry. bassa densità media densità

URBAN TEXTURE: PORTO VECCHIO The area of the old port, developed under Austrian rule in the second half ‘of 1800, has a regular street pattern: the layout of the buildings had to ensure comfortable maneuvering space for vehicles and trains working between these buildings, allowing winches and cranes (then placed in permanent buildings) to release the goods without loss of time or hindrance.

URBAN TEXTURE: CITTA' VECCHIA The old city is spread in the area of the Castle of San Giusto, Italy and square Piazza Unità d'Cavana. It 's the area of Roman foundation: the distribution of roads and built longer responded to the need to contain the greatest number of people within the city walls rather than to ensure compliance with certain minimum size, so much so that you can recognize a regularity of the fabric (except for the system of the banks of construction posthumous).

GENERAL OUTLINE OF THE AREAS OF TRIESTE As can be seen from the plan, the city is divided into different historic areas: the area of San Giusto and Piazza Cavana turn out to be the most ancient as the historical center of Roman foundation, the Theresian and the Old Port are the foundation of the Austrian (half and second half of 1800), while other areas, excluding specific interventions or specific cases, of the contemporary era.

URBAN TEXTURE: BORGO TERESIANO Made in the mid-eighteenth century, and it was by Empress Maria Theresa of Austria, the district was designed to give a little 'breathing and development of the city that was witnessing the flourishing trade port. Was obtained silting of the salt of the city, urbanized area outside the walls. With its road axis orthogonal texture, it is one of the first examples of zoning modern citizens.

LEGEND Porto nuovo Porto vecchio Zona di fondazione romana Borgo Teresiano Case su un piano Edifici a blocco

URBAN TEXTURE: CASE SU UN PIANO They are the parts of contemporary creation. Their large residential areas, which focus both on the peninsula of St. Andrew which in the suburb of Trieste, act as a buffer between the high population density in the city center and the periphery (represented by the barrier of the Karst.) The fabric is only concerned with road to better distribute the heated housing, often in the absence of a clear organization. The feature of the area is to present major issues related to parking and traffic. URBAN TEXTURE: EDIFICI A BLOCCO

URBAN TEXTURE The city of Trieste consists in different urban structures that differ in shape, size and historical period in which they were made. The core of most ancient part of the city, that stretches from the Castle of San Giusto (founded by the Romans), up to Theresian and the Old Port (both Austrian foundation). The remaining areas develop in a contemporary time.

They are the parts of contemporary creation. The same remarks apply to the case of a plan, which differ in the very high population density. It 's the typical fabric of the city of Trieste's center, consisting of several floors of buildings (many of which were built in the early 900), which are arranged around an inner courtyard which is overlooked by the units.

SCHEME OF INTERPRETATION OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE CITY ‘AND COAST The part of the historic city, the peninsula of St. Andrew, and the Theresian is isolated from the sea, as it is surrounded in a direction with the industrial port (which by its nature is inaccessible) and the other with the system of banks. The latter can “talk” with only the buildings that overlook them, denying the outlet to the sea in the area behind it.


PROJECT AREA

After a comprehensive analysis of the city, considering the different surfaces, the type of texture, the density of housing, the relationships with the natural limits, it was decided to intervene in the area that actually has the best “ potential” as concerns precisely the density and porosity of the fabric of the city : the peninsula of St. Andrew. This particular area of Trieste has many design possibilities, represented by its intrinsic characteristics: the first is the topography of the land, as the area is situated in a hilly area, and the second is based on a variety of tissue types, the result of the dense or constantly changing of the story (to emphasize the presence of the castle of San Giusto, and several important results such as the Roman theater and the arc of Richard), and the third is the presence of many residual spaces that lend themselves easily design a non-invasive for the same, and finally the fourth, represented by a high density of the population, which would make the area rich in power of possible social activities. They are to be recognized , however, also significant issues , which perhaps more potential, progettualmente invite you to think about this area of Trieste : the lack of meeting points , the lack of recreational activities , lack of footpaths, issues related to traffic and the parking lot of the media are all aspects that need to be resolved. The negative aspects combined with the potential, therefore offer the opportunity to deal with a dense and layered strategically crucial , that if “ retrained “ in a targeted and timely , will show you how to “ respond “ to the “ crisis of Public Space “ whom this thesis wants to be treated. SLOPE: despite being regarded as a morphological barrier that makes it difficult to practicality and the crossing of the project area , this feature is seen as a potential, since it naturally offers a privileged view to the users. If designed properly , the area could offer privileged views , hardly accessible to pedestrians in other parts of Trieste. VARIETY ‘ typological : the presence of a strong “ mixité “ historical stratification due to Roman and medieval times , combined with a “ mixité “ typological homes and spaces, designed to enhance the design of a unique architectural

diversity than the rest of the city. The presence of archaeological excavations of open spaces, commercial and residential areas give ‘ the possibility of obtaining several “ catalysts of care “, which encourage the emergence of social activities and human relationships. RESIDUAL SPACE : the fabric of the project area has several residual spaces , consisting of building lots “ unresolved “ or abandoned spaces is by road from uncultivated areas . A redevelopment of these areas would not be invasive in respect of the existing and would give the opportunity to give back to the local people, and spaces of common use. Taking advantage of the slope of the area ( where possible) , you will get numerous car parks, that “ lighten “ further the volume of traffic the same .

The project falls in detail and choose to do along the line that connects the castle of San Giusto to the sports area of ​​the pool Bianchi: this “axis” offers interesting architecture , due to the increased number of residual spaces and present the greatest difference due to the slope . Through the system of the existing stairs , through the new lift system , new flooring through , you go to create well-defined preferential paths which invite the users to go through and discover the area . A series of residual spaces completely redesigned according to the certain “rules” , will be the stages in this “journey “, offering citizenship , habitual and occasional , new meeting points where developing social activities : these elements will proclaim the new core of the neighborhood unit . Particular attention will be given to some interstitial nodes present between the housing and especially to the square Rosmini , the last “station” of this long journey : the scale of the project will come up to 500 , showing how the different parts of the same “ residual “ talk . The big difference on which stands the area (over 9 meters), allow you to see how the system scale is declined according to the concepts explained above.


ZOOM INTERSTITIAL SPACES / ZOOM A

ZOOM INTERSTITIAL SPACES / ZOOM B

In this fragment of the urban fabric, it shows a possible design of the interstitial space between some houses: through a new system of stairs, which connects the different levels of this element, you can create a “public courtyard,� capable of accommodate within it a number of social activities. The users, not necessarily the inhabitants of the zone, they can literally walk through the space, meeting new people and establishing new social practices. Elements characterize this as a new project for the St. Andrea peninsula.

This interstitial space is different from the previous one as well as to allow communication between surfaces that would otherwise remain abandoned, the system connects to the road / paved one of the many residential space (in this case the one on the hill of San Giusto) that is redesigned and main element becomes part of the system San Giusto - Pool Bianchi.


ZOOM INTERSTITIAL SPACES / ZOOM C

ZOOM INTERSTITIAL SPACES / ZOOM D STAIR As already mentioned in the previous section, the scale and the system of which it is part, become the true ligand of the urban citizen in the peninsula of St. Andrew, with the task of connecting the different units of the neighborhood, through a single path. As you could appreciate just zoom in interstitial spaces, the scale actually interacts with the surrounding area, crossing and combining elements of it that would otherwise remain isolated. It just can behave simply as an element of vertical communication, when space is limited, such as layby, if the space is opened and true square as if the situation permits.
