bagnoli district - naples October 2017 - June 2018 Individual project Architecture has always been conceived at human scale before any other. What if human scale was not the answer anymore? This research proposes a new urban design strategy, which aims to contradict the traditional human-based approach to architecture. A humanless self-sufficient productive system that intents to control the organization, production and transportation of the goods to the city. The design is shaped by the footprint, movement and function of the machines themselves and their needs. 8 existing automated industries and their machines were investigated for data collection. The contextual analysis, along with the extracted machine data was used to set design parameters for the robotic system of production that serves the Metropolitan City of Naples.

a 2050 scenario - rio de janeiro January 2017 - July 2017 team: 3 people role: analysis, design, graphical representation, model fabrication The project area is a designated perinode. This may be understood as a node of communication and various activities, located above the city center. An accurate urban analysis of the perinode surroundings was carried out, highlighting the contrasting existence of a Hyper Region and a Slow City. Hyper Regions are areas of extreme speed, complexity and grand scale, both in use and communications, while Slow Cities are its opposite, areas where life is more slow and simple. In daily life, these two need each other: Urban Infiltration is a research on how these 2 situations may work together. The project is composed of various functions, both private and public, wrapping around bio reactors, open public spaces where the temperature is controlled through the use of vegetation, surrounded by pixelated housing complexes. The existing mobility infrastructure is adapted to future predictions and inglobated into the project.

melbourne, australia July 2016 - August 2016 team: 4 people role: design contribution, graphic representation The project is composed by 3 “sister” residences located in a holiday town near Melbourne. The houses can accomodate 3 larger extended families each, and are designed as holiday residences, with access to the seaside through the common path at the end of the backyards. The topographic configuration of the site, a slope overlooking the sea, allows the full use of 3 floors, while not exceeding the maximum height of only 2 storeys visible from the street. Taking advantage of this, the first floor is designed with a big bedroom and private bathroom for the parents, while the childrens’ and grandparents’ bedrooms is located in the basement. The living area is at the street level. Each area has big openings onto a balcony. The idea was to take advantage of the beautiful view, without constraining the whole design around it. Each house was designed with different materials and slightly different layout to differentiate it from the other ones.

bullona neighborhood - milan February 2015 - June 2015 team: 3 people role: architectural design, interior design, graphic representation, model making The aim of this project was to find a urban void in the city of Milan, and to design, applying the interior architecture approach, a minimum living space for one or more temporary users. The users are ex-jailed in social reintegration. The idea of the kilometro 0 cultivation gives the hidden neighborhood park a bigger visibility, and connect the neighbours and the users through a social and educational activity for all ages. The park, together with the first floor, were divided into areas of different cultivation typology; at the ground floor the products are sold in a cosy cafe with a terrace for the warmer seasons. The 42 sq m residence is located at the second and third floor, above the noises of the city. Inspired by Shigeru Ban’s NineSquare Grid House, through the use of rigid fabric panels, the space can be divided in three rooms, two rooms, or simply left as a single space. The facades are designed so that all the rooms can be open and enlightened spaces, or the opposite, closed and darkened, for moments of privacy and silence. The furniture of the whole project were custom-designed based on the space and the users of different ages and necessities.

poblenou district - barcelona October 2016 - December 2016 team: 4 people role: design, manufacturing, graphical representation A solar heating system composed by triangular structures and portable heating units that joined together form a modular outdoor canopy which provides thermal comfort for the community while rejuvenating social interaction in the public spaces of Poblenou. The capacity of free combination of the heating units allows for greater social engagement, serving as an enhancement to the implementation of Barcelona's urban planning - the Superilla. Based on the mapping of major activities taking place in districts, three different types of canopy are targeted for three user profiles: kids, creative students/workers, culture enthusiasts.

digital fabricated lamp // cnc milling October 2016 team: 3 people role: design, graphical representation, model fabrication Inspired by an Indian geometrical pattern applied on a colourful carpet, the rhomboidal shape was extracted and cut it with horizontal lines, in order to open up the possibility of playing with a double light effect. The peculiarity of this 2D pattern is the fact that it can generate many 3D designs, each one completely different from the other. The design is a composition of a soft game of light created by the horizontal gradient and sudden transversal cuts that slightly disappear as the surface gets thinner.
