Curriculum Vitae

Carlo Alberto Monteverde architect | photographer |

I’m an architect, and a self-taught photographer. I studied Architecture in Turin at the Politecnico di Torino. During this period I spent two months in Hong Kong for my master degree thesis, research based on local informal architecture. I’m interested in urban and architectural projects, that especially focus on society and community. I think of myself a flexible worker and team leader. I’m searching for vibrant job opportunities.

The Fracture Towers Sandretto Cultural Pole Santa Marta Cubes From Roof to Ground (Master Degree Thesis project) Special mention of the jury


The Fract ure Towers The city of Turin is living a period of great mutations. The industrial city falled down and a new metropolis is growing up. Starting from this situation, lots of ex-industrial sites were closed and, beacuse of this, it grew the importance of filling up decommisioned areas. Since the early years of the XXI century, the first skyscraper took place in Turin near the Porta Susa train station. That bring to a new era of Turin, several project of towers, after that, were made among the city. The area of intervention is the Ex Fiat Avio area, South-East of Turin, near the under-construction Re-

8

gione Piemonte tower. The project aim is to create a new High Specialized Health District. The tower concept was born from the idea of a great Tower fractured in the middle, creating an axial dialog between the district and the rest of the city. Inside the towers therea re different functions: a hotel, offices and a great Research Pole.

T

he Ex-Avio area is nowadays in search of a new face. The Heath City is an international project that could place Turin as an important euroean health hub. The project aims to find a solution in order to welcome a gre-

at number of vistiors. Because of this the project is based on a key central axis that links the train station to a big public spaces that could be used for temporary uses. Between the public space and the train station there are the towers, that aims to become a


key sign of the area. From a side of the area there is a public park for the district and from the other the advanced hospital structures. These last are designed as courts in order to maintain the historical ditrict urban design. Vegetation has a key role in the project, there

are private areas for hospital visitors and public for inhabitants.

Sandretto Cultural Pole Collegno is a a city of 50 000 inhabitants next to Turin, in Italy, that is in developement. Great part of this city is composed of inactive industries, that need to retrofit and find new functions to relaunch the society and the economy of a part of Collegno. The area is adjoining with the Parco della Certosa, an antique asylum, Corso Francia, a residential quarter and the ancient Turin Airport. The project purposed in these sheets is only a part of the great project studied. The area that I studied in deep is the historical Sandretto venue, now unused. A part of the venue is retrofitted in

16

Co Working places, with lots of laboratories and sharing desks, and its organized in little courts. Than the remaining buildings were destroyed and were designed a co-housing residence, deeply represented in the last sheet and, and a cultural pole for basic activities for the quarter, as dance, music lessons, theater and art.

tarting from the goal of give a new face to an abandoned area such this, the project aims to become key center for the community of Collegno suburbs. Principally the first pro-

blem to solve was the great urban divison shaped by the existing industry. Beside I thought that it could be important maintain par of the industrial heritage of the area, so the most historical building had been retrofitted,


while the rest has been destroyed in order to construct new buildings. The northert area is projected as public building, necessities for the distrct that already is unserved. Between the historical building and the pu-

blic area, i projected an innovative co-housing hub, a flexible solution for inhabiting.

Sant a Mart a Cube s Santa Marta is a favela located on Morro Dona Marta in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. This is a urban favela, born as a district for low-income residents during the ‘40 of XX. In the last 40 years, due to a strong urbanisation of the city, this district was involved in a deep informal development and urban densification. Santa Marta is considered a pacific favela, one of the most turistic thanks to a strategic position for beautiful panoramic views. Consequently, in the last years has been construct a cableway that links Santa Marta from the base to the top. Moreover, as all the others favelas,

24

Santa Marta has several issues beside poverty. This project aims to start from a few key points as: water recycle and natural purification, recycling depot and community areas construction. The project aims to solve a critical issue of flooding, through planning new infiltration and vegetated areas.

S

anta Marta Cubes project primarly it is based on planning a fundamental infrastructure that could satisfy basic people necessities. The area was subdivided in several self-suffucient sub-areas, each of which includes a recycle depot every 60 inhabitants, several phytopurification vegetaded areas that collect and purify water, a dense network of pipes ,that bring purified water to a community square where it is located a public water tank. These water tanks are steel cubes, that could increase in order to community needs, becoming flexible public structures. These Cubes are selfsufficient, infact the covering of each structure there is a photovoltaic cover that give basic electricity to the square. The concept of these cubes is born from favela pratice construction of construction by expanding existing structures.

From Roof to Habitat Hong Kong, since its born, has always been a prosperous territory thanks to its strategic position. It’s a promise land for trade and business and as well for people in search of a better future. These factors, together with a shortage of space for constructions, favourited an always higher densification of this city. Due to governmental policies and business necessities, community activities have increasingly lost their spaces at ground floor. This issue promoted several informal uses of high-rise buildings’ roofs, which became the natural expansion of the community sphere. One of these is housing. Infact in Hong Kong there were born informal villages above existing buildin-

32

gs, called rooftop communities. From this, the project focus on Ma Tau Kok area in East Kowloon, Hong Kong peninsula. In particular 5 buildings located on the “5 streets” are the main area of the project. This project aims to solve some issues of these villages, especially focussing on finding entrepreneurial solutions for dwellers through water recycle and cultivation sales.

T

he projet could be subdivided in two parts, public and private, that work together in one system. Both of these find their guide lines in natural resources exploitment: water and vegetation. The private project is thought for rooftop and 5 Streets’ dwellers. Unused

spaces are endowed with a platform in order to take off any uneven floor issues and to collect rain water. On this platform, the exploitable areas could be fitted with rooftop farming or “community hubs”. These structures provide primary services as lavatory, water tank and kitchen.


Regarding the public space project, we thought about a connection between buildings that links different communities and offers an open space usable by dwellers and district inhabitants. These spaces are planned for common activities, others hubs give primary services and a covered area for food shops

and kiosks, where people can buy and eat rooftop farm products. Vertical distribution is allowed by two staircases and two elevator for each public space.
