Expolio Proposal for WS Expo dopo Expo

Expo 2015 is been a great event for the city of Milan and for all Italy. The aims of this proposal are to avoid the waste of money and space deriving from abandoning the area that hosted Expo and the re-use of some of the structures left there. This is the reason for the name Expolio, from latin word expoliare, to indicate the practice of using some pieces of an architecture to build another. Services and clusters buildings used during the Expo will be dismounted and their structural modules will be used to configurate new aggregations for brand new functions. Expo area is crossed from two major routes: Cardo and Decumano, which are partially covered with a tensile structure along all the lenght of the way. Goal of this proposal is to keep the frames of theese structure and integrate them with many technic tools in order to make the covered spaces liveble achieving enviromental comfort. There will be a new ETFE pillows coverage, using existing tie-beams with some small integrations, and a new curtain wall system to close the sides between the frames with modular polycarbonate panels provided with their own self-supporting body. Both the coverage and the side walls will be highly performing from the point of view of the thermal comfort and the sun shading; infact both of them will be provided with semitransparent photovoltaic film in order to make the entire covered space selfsustainable, granting a great energy saving.

Qube for Pulpit Rock Look-Out

The purpose of Qube proposal is to use elements able to insert in the non- man made environment of Lysefjord and at the same time completely detach and generate from nature itself. Pure forms: sphere and cube. These lay on the ground of the pulpit rock so that this new space generated has wide visual angles that let visitors’ eyes to admire, even from the inside, the natural wonders in front of them. From a purely perceptual point of view the intervention consists in two pure elements, a sphere and a cube, which dialogue between them by means of a staircase. Chosen materials are high performances plastics as polycarbonate, wood, steel and aluminum, the cube’s constructive system allows to rotate the roof, covered by photovoltaic film, using two sliding wood frames. This makes the building very sustainable by collecting the water, and adapting to the solar and wind expositions. Perimeter walls are made by hollow polycarbonate blocks whose particular profiles allow a better grip between the parts. On one corner of the cube there’s a metal staircase capable to move up and down together with the sphere, made of steel, aluminum and polycarbonate, from which the hikers can admire the wonderful view of the Lysefjord.

Trulli complex in Ostuni

The town of Ostuni is very famous in the world for its traditional architecture: trulli. In this case the existing complex of trulli was a ruin seriously damaged from carelessness and abandon. The proposal is divided in two parts: -restoration of the existing building with fixing of the major damages; -building of a new part of the complex with the same style of the originals. The building will be used as a tourist facility with a reception part, bedrooms, external swimming pool and common spaces for the guests.

inMobile Project

The first consequence of a densely populated city is the lack of free space and the rise of house prices. In Hong Kong for example an average laborer earns between HK$20,000 and HK$50,000, but he’s usually unable to buy a house for himself or his family even though he belongs to the middle-income group. On the other hand almost everyone in HK can afford the purchase of a car, in fact in 2016 were released 536.025 new car licenses and this number is steadily increasing for 20 years. inMobile is a project aiming to solve theese issues both on large and little scale through the automotive industry: the industrial production process on a mass scale can reduce a lot the time needed to make a standardized object and the distribution to the seller or the final customer is designed to be cheap and very fast; all this factors contribute to reduce the cost of the final product. This works well with cars, but can be used as a production system for inMobile too. inMobile project is made by a modular structure frame (10m x 10m) and a residential unit (34 or 16 m2), both designed to be industrially produced by car manufacturers, possibly 3d printed, easly transported into ISO containers and sold to an extimated price between US$45.000 and US$65.000.
