MIDLAND METROPOLITAN HOSPITAL Birmingham, The Midlands

4


The Midland Metropolitan Hospital is an 80 000 sqm new-built hospital, currently under construction. Edward Williams Architects is Architectural Design Lead, in charge of main geometry, facade and coordination, of a team with HKS appointed by Carillion as the Architectural Project Lead and Sonnemann Toon Architects as Architectural Clinical Lead. The project involves the masterplan of a whole industrial area, whilst keeping a careful regard to the careful detail of each single part of facade. The analysis of the brief produced a natural stacking of functions with wards at the top, clinical areas in the middle and the car park at the bottom, a unique arrangement for a building of this type that provided fully covered car park and drop off for taxis, buses, patient transport and private cars.The whole design is based on a few classical principles: the use of a regular modular grid for each part of the hospital, the nearly-perfect rational symmetry, the expression of the structure and the in depth detail of each portion of facade. These principles enable the 80.000 sqm building to look elegant and proportioned. Also, the attention for the basic everyday-life human actions, is transformed into architecture: simple strategies, such as the arrangement of embed-in-the-facade benches, visual cones for the wayďŹ nding, horizontal and vertical guidelines throughout the building, brings down the vast size of the building to a human-scale environment, despite its size. Date: 2014 - under construction Type: Healthcare, Masterplan, PFI development Location: Sandwell, Birmigham, UK @ Edward Williams Architects Ltd. Status: In construction EWA team : arch.

REINTEPRETING LOUIS KAHN’S CONGRESS PALACE Venice, Italy

16


The analysis of the development of the typical Venetian bridge, in its image and spatial use, is a powerful and paradigmatic tool to confront Venice in the past and in the present, from a political, economic, social and cultural point of view. What especially interested me was the visual documentation that portays bridges throughout time: these tells us on how this element, during the life of the Republic, played a key role in the Venitian public life, by hosting ordinary and extraordinary events and being a lived and vibrant piece of infrastructure, an extension of the Venitian public realm. After the fall of the Republic and with the progressive cementification of the image of Venice, the bridge lost its vibrant and dynamic charachter of urban stage. Today, it represents a symbol of the image of Venice as mass tourism destination. Louis Kahn’s aim was to bring the bridge back to its original splendour, by distantiating himself spatially and formally from typical Venetian bridge. He tried to recreate a space of encounter, by physically and metaphorically embracing the city of Venice in his hybrid design. He provocatively drew a sharp cut with the cementified image of the bridge, and subverted all its spatial and formal rules. Louis Kahn’s bridge was never built. According to the Municipality of Venice, the Congress Palace was claimed to be too anomalous of an element to blend into the historical urban fabric of Venice which had an ‘innate inability to accept abstract forms embedded in its historic context.’ (Vito Chiarelli). Such a reaction demonstrated the current difficulty in the resolution of the tension between proposed projects and realised ones, between detailing and immaterial abstraction, between real and imagined. The reinterpretation drawing and the unseen views of the Congress Palace respectively represent the reasons of success and failure of Louis Kahn’s ambitions. The success lies in the reading of Venice from a spatial and experiential point of view only, disregarding its architectural qualities and image: Khan understands the centrality of the feeling of the public realm as a theatrical scenery, for both ordinary and extraordinary events. The unseen view, instead, want to highlight the contrast between the Congress Palace’s reduction of form to pure abstraction and immateriality, and the intricate and detailed image of the Venitian built environment.

Approaching a Bridge


Approaching a Building


THE CONGRESS PALACE AS THE ANTITHETICAL BRIDGE

ENCLOSURE MOVEMENT

SCALE

from continuous experience to segmented experience. The act of crossing the antibridge resembles a combinated experience of getting into a private at, walking through a campo or along a calle

from crossing as main function, to crossing as subfunction. The gigantic scale allows the bridge to become a suspended campo.

from a surface for connection to a multifunctional hybrid. The anti-bridge exploits all the void spaces within the physical boundaries of the city

IMAGE

CURVATURE

from intricacy and detail as sign of artistic development and power, to austerity and purity of gemetry as full expression of function and structure

the ipped curvature brings the centre of the bridge and its activity as close as possible to the obstacle reinforcing the connection with the canal


Louis Kahn’s Spatial and Formal Subversion of the Typical Venetian Bridge


A MOMENT OF GAP Reinterpreting the Experience of the Venetian Bridge Venice, Italy

22


My project aims at reimagining the the crystallised image of the Venetian bridge as a space for encounter, as it used to be during the time of the Republic, rather than an iconic image to be looked at or a platform to look elsewhere. In order to make it again a lived piece of infrastructure, a set for ordinary and extraordinary events, my design proposal is a bridge able to host the contemporary symbol of the space of encounter and display of one self: the nightclub. Other than being a lacking facility in Venice, the nightcub, place for imagination and illusion, offers itself as the perfect programme to re-imagine the Venetian bridge in the contemporary, as a new space for a moment of collectiveness, as well as an elevated public ground to see each others and self diplay. The project has embodied a series of simple gestures, architectural and programmatic, which aimed at redefining the bride as a stage, a raised platform to see and to be seen, by subverting the current relationship observer-observed. The way these elements play with transparencies, reflections and optic cones, places the user - with their activity and rituality taking place on the bridge - at the centre of the attention, rather than the bridge itself as a symbol or as a mere platform to look at the surroudings: a gap on the water where vistas are viewed, becomes a space for reflection as you lose yourself.

“EU RECICLO, E VOÇE?” Self-produced Construction Material for the Wastepickers in Porto Alegre Porto Alegre, Brazil

44


The Vila dos Papeleiros is a social housing complex, built on the ruins of the burnt homonym favela, in order to host its inhabitants: the city’s waste pickers, the so called ‘papeleiros’. Given the very limited space provided by the new units (40 sqm), the residents of the Vila are slowly building extensions and transforming the area in a another unsafe shanty town. The project aims at combining the need of new habitable space, whilst enhancing the current job of the papeleiros: it aims at developing a selfproduced construction material made with the collected recyclables. By doing so, the papeileros can make a better use of the picked materials, either for extending their houses themselves, or for selling the product, rather than selling these resources underpriced to big structures, generally in Sao Paolo. The final goal is to better the housing quality, through the improvement of the existing job and local entrepreneurship. The upcycling of disposed materials, easily available and daily collected by the papeleiros, makes the project not only actually site-specific, but also efficient, from an environmental point of view, making use of what the capitalistic society daily produces. The main focus of the project was to develop a low-tech strategy for producing building materials, as well as a simple construction method. The proposed final design shows a potential self-built extension, which also helps reducing the overall overheating and energy consumption of a single unit.

Re-Durban is an urban regeneration project in an industrial neighbourhood of Durban, abandoned in the post-apartheid. The masterplan deals with the problem of lack of relationships between city, area, streets and people. The originary principle for the redevelopment of a new cohesive district is the adaptive reuse of the ex-factories and sheds, completely out-of-scale, but still in good conditions and with great potential to offer. The process of acquisition of the area in order to turn it into a mixed-use center, is founded on the principle of a gradual reduction of scale of the existing spaces, to make them livable and suitable for human activities. The huge former factories, all lined up next to each other, are transformed and reconfigured as big housing complex: a gradual development of dwellings and flexible trade unravels along a new secondary pedestrian route, able to reconstitute a microcosm inside a container, which in turn maintains contact with the exterior dominated by large scale buildings. The mutual physical contact of the reused factories, connected to each other with the new transversal paths, contributes to create a larger scale neighbourhood, able to keep the atmosphere of a village. The masterplan includes not only the final product , but focuses on its sustainable flexible process. Further measures has been taken into consideration in parallel, economic and social, to ensure the recovery of local activities (such as crafts and street markets), avoid social segregation and find in the arts and culture a dominant feature and a reference point for the neighborhood.

BEER HALL ADAPTIVE REUSE @ RE-DURBAN 1st Prize_InternationalStudent CompetitionRivertown Calls for University Durban, South Africa

68


The Beer Hall is recognized as the only listed building in the area to be protected as part of the historical heritage of the city. It was the ďŹ rst brewery of the city, where residents from all over the town used to meet for a pint and therefore, became a symbol of social equality in Durban. The intervention aims at preserving as much as possible the identity of the beer hall: a new volume is introduced between the three existing ones, in order to connect them and direct ďŹ&#x201A;ows, as well as providing a new shaded area open to the courtyard. A new programmatic menaing is given by making the building s the new Art Center of the city, able to host an exhibition space, temporary accommodation for artists and a workshop that encourages the interaction with the inhabitants.

CAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; NOVA A New-built Villa on the Como Lake

Breathtaking views from the top floor dining space

Brienno (Como Lake), Italy

72


Ca’ Nova is a newly built high-end lakeside townhouse carefully and respectfully designed to fit into the ancient medieval context in which it lies, in order to blend modern luxury and tradition. It has a total area of approximately 400m2 set over 6 floors all served by an internal lift. The six floor single family house fully exploits its position on the land that abruptly slopes to the lake level: all of the sleeping areas lie at the quieter lower levels, whereas the more public entrance, living and kitchen/dining areas are designed at the upper levels. The roof top loggia linked directly to the kitchen and dining room provides stunning views of the lake, and the double height entrance and living room a dramatic experience on arrival. The simple palette and locally sourced materials were carefully chosen to blend with the delicate surrounding, as well as roof, windows and balconies, which were are designed as reintepretation of the vernacular from the Como Lake.

AB IMIS FUNDAMENTIS - COMPETION FOR VIA DEI FORI IMPERIALI Special Mention at the Piranesi Prix de Rome 2016 XIV Edition. Published online on DIVISARE . Collaborator for Competition for via dei Fori Imperiali in Rome. Rome, Italy

78


The project, understood as “interpretation, translation and narrative”, aims at empowering the two essential features of Via dei Fori Imperiali: its length, a powerful tool to produce and read the space, and its raised level compared to the archaeological ground, which vice versa does not allow to clearly read and live the tremendous archaeological heritage. The strategy for the project is to turn the area in an outdoor museum, whilst rearranging the whole archaeological system on one level, and redesigning Via dei Fori Imperiali road-cut. The final goal: a drop towards the hypogeal level, to resolve conflict between archaeology and infrastructure, whilst guaranteeing an inclusive participation that moves towards a public “use” of history. Convinced that the project could fill the temporal and spatial gap, which disengages us from the past, the proposal is a system of canopies to cover the excavation site. The canopies, multi-layered frames supported by pillars, follow the still changeable conformation of the excavations. Moreover, they disperse a diaphanous light with variable intensity on the covered parts. The system is removable and conceived to be flexible, in order to adapt to different situations. This new layer is partially accessible to the pedestrians, according to a selection of routes: it allows to re-establish the “void” view of the area from the top, as if the site was in a preliminary excavation phase like in the XX century. Large shafts crete visual relationships with the underground chamber, but also a direct, new and closer relationship with singular archaeological elements. The whole whole experience is immersed in the charm of climbing on the scaffolding and travelling within the structures, see and select constantly changing views of the surrounding archaeological emergencies.
