Regeneration of the Ex-Montedison, Falconara Marittima, Italy Graduation project, Academic, 2016

Design process. Regeneration of the Ex-Montedison, a fertilizer factory in Falconara Marittima (in the province of Ancona). The abandoned industrial area represents, together with others on the coast (Adriatic Sea), a new urban centrality. The project takes advantage on the proximity of big infrastructures, like airport, railway and the A14 highway. The composition is founded on a deep analysis of the buildings history, which have a restriction as industrial archaeological heritage Graphic representation. The objective of the graphic representation here is to explicit the connection with the existing and the historical role they had in the production line

Mentors: Arch. Alessandro Massarente, Arch. Filippo Boschi

Skyscraper on the BahĂŹa de Cartagena, Colombia Academic, 2015

Design process. The skyscraper is located in the Manga district, on the BahĂŹa de Cartagena. The concept is founded on one goal: to maximize the view toward the sea. The skin represent an abstraction of the water and, at the same time, it has the role of sunscreens and generate always different apartments. In fact the terraces change in size at each floor Graphic representation. The images here have the role, with a particular choice of perspectives and point of view, to represent the contrast between the seriality of the horizontal plans and the organic skin

In collaboration with: A. Baroncelli and E. Montanari

Design process. Redevelopment of the industrial area north of Padova. The project is a gate for the industrial area, because of its localization. The project take advantage of this to regenerate the district through its new functions and the disposition of its volumes. The composition found itself on the seriality and modularity, typical of the industrial complexes Graphic representation. The representation has the goal to express the simplicity and the seriality of the project. With a gaunt graphic representation, linear and simple

Transition to the lighthouse

Lighthouse on the coast of the Giglio Island, Italy Competition, 2015

Design process. The lighthouse is transition. It is the manifestation of the meeting between different elements. It is the interpenetration of opposing worlds while at the same time being tangent to one another. The composition is founded on the reflection on the margins, closely connected with the typology of the lighthouse. The dialectic between the margins and their interpenetration is the reading key. There are three vertical phases of the volume: station (the memory grotto), transition (the main stairway) and ascension Graphic representation. With the choice of some point of view and sections, the intention was to focus attention on the grotto, the conceptual center of gravity of the project (in loving memory of the victims)

Tassoni restoration

Restoration of Palazzo Tassoni, Ferrara, Italy Academic, 2015

Design process. Here the project is less important, the focus is the building itself and in particular the portico. With a deep analysis of architectural language, construction technique and deteriorations Graphic representation. The representation bends to the need of rigor and clarity that requires the restoration. More than the restoration project I chose to show how the graphic representation can investigate the existing; the quality of detail. With two objectives: to freeze the current deteriorations status and at the same time to profit the moment of representation as a further study of the object

In collaboration with: A. Baroncelli and Z. Guglielmo Maria
