RE-DESING THE ENCLOSURE NEW WAYS OF LIVING RI-FORMARE MILANO FOR EXPO ‘15 MILANO, ITALY

The project area is an old abandoned area which was a slaughterhouse (Ex-Macello) before. The area is an enclosed by walls and not connected to daily life of the city. The proposal for this area is an urban creativity hub for creative cultural industries and innovative program.The architectural program includes fab-lab _consisting of welcome area, exposition box, auditorium, experimen-

MEMORIAL FOR WWII MONTE STELLA, MILANO, ITALY

The project area is the only hill in the flat landscape of Milan. It is an artificial hill which was built with the debris of WWII. It is the highest green point in Milan so that it has a good panaroma of the city. Considering it has a symbolic memory inside buried and not realized by users of the hill and

The design is mainly focused on human scale . The main idea is to sustain street life in vertical and horizontal movements and in the intersections of them. According to existing topography and trees, aiming minimum intervene on them, two axises are thought. One of them is respecting existing topography (topos), the other one is elevated from the topography (anti-topos). On the intersections

WEAK EXPERIMENTS. WATER CITY

STRATEGY

> PHASE I

> PHASE II

> PHASE III

The sea plays a very important role for the city of Genoa. It affects the city in many ways. Especially the rising sea level has a great influence on the city. Therefore we decided to base our strategy on the sea. In these three maps you can see the three phases of the rising water level. In order to incorporate the rising sea level into the city and transform the danger of the sea into a part of the city, we have planned to put fixed platform into the sea parallel to the growth city. Vice versa some water pools are created along the river to place the energy batteries of the city. The fixed platforms will be equipped with windstalks, which are energy producing items and also host to the events. Moreover small floating solar-light-houses are part of the strategy. They are producing light from solar energy and in case of special events they will be grouped together in front of the city or will be attached to the wind stalk platforms. In the second and third phase more fixed platforms with wind stalks and more floating solar-light-houses will be added, in order to further incorporate the sea into the city life. So when the water comes back to city, it will also bring the energy and life for it.

VISION

day view

We think of two different platforms that produces energy for the city. First one is floating on the sea but fixed not movable. These platforms have wind stalks to produce energy. Second one is can move and group to each other or attach to the fixed wind stalk platforms. They use the image of lighthouse. They produce energy from solar panels that placed on the roof. When there is a event in the city, they light up and give this information to the city users. The big white platforms are the windstalk-platforms. Windstalks are energy producing items from the vibrance of the wind. They are consisting of a base and a pole with a small ball on the top. When it’s windy, the poles move and thus press the disks in the base together that in this way generate energy. People can access the fixed platforms by small boats and walk around and between the wind stalks. Moreover there are solar-lighthouses. They are on small hexagon platforms that float and can dock at the fixed platforms or each other. They have solar panels on the roof of the light houses and in this way can produce light. At night it gives the light to city when there is a event in the city.

SHAPING THE LIGHT //REGENERATING THE LANDSCAPE

The project area is an old abandoned mine area which was closed and restricted to enter for some time. The idea is to redesign covers of air well of the mine in a way that both regenerates the landscape on the ground level and also creates a park of light on underground level both in daytime and nighttime. The natural light is the
