MOTIVATION LETTER

Milan, 8th March 2017 Dear Sir/Madame,


I’m an architecture student from Politecnico di Milano and I’m writing to apply for an internship in Rotterdam next September. During my years of study, I’ve been always influenced by the office, reading your books or studying your projects and what I really love is your innovative way to represent the research, getting involved to go beyond the limits, finding new kinds of original architectural combinations related to the research that, in my opinion, is a key concept strictly linked to architecture. Furthermore, I had the possibility to join the workshop with Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, Giacomo Ardesio and Giulio Margheri last week at Politecnico and it was the first opportunity to work with someone that really inspired me for a long time. Even if the workshop lasted only ten days, I had the chance to understand a little bit what OMA is. Consequently, I really loved their way of working and thinking in a completely new and innovative way, reinterpreting continuously the reality. What I understood is that maybe for my interests and my personal growth an internship at your Office could change and increase a lot my personal capacities and I think it is what I really need after different years of university and internships.
 I understood that architecture is my big passion and I love to study it. It is something inseparable from my personality and I couldn’t imagine to stop thinking and researching about it. I’ve always worked hard but I am so happy to say that working in the field of architecture is never annoying for me, since it is what I really love. One of the things that I like most about architecture, is the fact that it always offers me new challenges. Another aspect of architecture is that it is made for people and by people, and therefore if society changes, architecture counteracts. I don’t have a real or precise opinion about architecture, but I think for me, it is a research itself and it is what OMA do. I like team work, continuous challenges and I work steadily. I like thinking about new ways to solve problems always challenging my mind. I think architecture, thanks to its power, is able to generate solutions using alternative methodology and through this, manifest various narratives. As it can be seen from my portfolio, each project is different, and this is due to my continuous research about architecture, maintaining the same approach and attitude of a diagrammatic thought, creativity and experimentation through the research but changing the forms. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I believe that working at OMA would be an important experience for my future and for the development of my personal research about architecture. I hope that from this letter you can understand the real motivation behind my ambition. Sincerely, Federica Giorgetta

Milan, 05 March 2017

Dear Sir/Madame,

I am writing to recommend Federica Giorgetta for your practice. She has been a student of my urban planning studio at Politecnico di Milano and I can assure she is very talented and motivated.

We worked together in a research about a new kind of urbanism, viewed by a non-anthropocentric perspective, and she came out with a very interesting proposal. She worked on an original idea of light structure able to invade the railway of the whole city to establish a progressive colonisation of biodiversity. The project was one of the best of the studio.

From the beginning in our course, Federica has shown great enthusiasm towards the themes we presented. Her ability to work in heavily charged creative environment is evident, and she has always performed her tasks with a positive and energetic attitude.

I suggest her as intern for your practice. She is really interested in the work of your studio and I think that an experience in your office could be very important for her personal research and evolution as architect.

Kind Regards,

Stefano Boeri


Dipartimento di Architettura e Studi Urbani To the attention of: The head of human resources for OMA Rotterdam, NL Milan, 06 March 2017 To whom it may concern, I am writing to recommend Federica Giorgetta for your practice. I experienced Federica’s skills both as a student during my Design Studio at Politecnico di Milano and as an intern in my office. The Design Studio focused on the design of a new kind of young hostel in the centre of Milan, based on a deep analysis of the city. Her proposal appeared quite interesting as a reinterpretation of traditional hostel. She worked on a new building that well interacted with the shapes of the historical centre of the city and she designed a new piazza with several picturesque elements, giving the possibility to people to deal with a new space. The project was one of the best of the studio thanks to an endearing design. During the internship, she confirmed good skills towards design and she entered immediately in the dynamic of the work of the office. She has always worked seriously. She has distinguished herself by her reliability, precision and organization and she was immediately integrated into the studio, collaborating with different teams, working on various projects and competitions. As I could notice, Federica’s perspective on architecture relies on a real curiosity, supported by innovative thinking and a quite sharp way of proposing her ideas. Her knowledge and understanding on architecture allow her to create connections between different projects, reinterpreting them in an original way. Since the beginning, Federica has shown great enthusiasm towards the themes we presented. Her ability to work in creative environments is clear, and she has always carried on her tasks with a strong and energetic attitude. I believe that working in your office would be an important experience for her future and for the development of her personal research, so I recommend her as an intern for your practice. I think you will not be disappointed by Federica and you will not have second thoughts about your choice.

FAR-IN FESTIVAL Scalo Farini, Milan Tutor : Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, OMA

Two axioms were given in order to build the architectural program based mainly on the previous concepts of TAZ and escapism.The main thought is to avoid the definition of one space to a preset category of urban unhappiness. Also, to avoid the existing categories and stereotypes of urban subcultures, the approach of the ressearch group was to define the target by the wishes and the discontents of people in the urban space.The matrix is a compression of the research group’s work. In order to define the target, it was first thought to categorize things that make people disconted and also things that characterises an urban group.“People who use their time to do things that no one wants to do.”“People looking for love and sex.”“People who approach the urban space in an unconventional way.” From the 18 categories, it was possible to think of 26 types of urban targets. For them 35 ludic spaces were perceived. After, some of the first spatial categories were merged into one another. Once defined the site’s atmosphere and the targets of the festival, it was possible to realize the mood and the experience of each space, that was related to the characters of the urban situation. A collage and a tale of one who has experienced the space speak with the reader and explain the project.

MELLOM HIMMEL OG JORD EXPO 2020 | Norway Pavillion Tutor : Ingrid Paoletti

Inspired by the Norwegian scenery, the country’s pavilion is aiming the blur the boundaries between earth and sky, explore the in between space and let the visitors choose the type of landscape that inspires them, they are called to define the undefined. The proposed scheme is a triangulated dynamic system covered from top and below with two different surfaces. This triangulated structural system will span above and in between the edges of the Norwegian “box” while transferring the bearing loads to the ground. This will also serve as a circulation space in-between the inside and outside. The megastructure will also be supported by vertical columns at the edges. The geometric design of the steel structure is developed further to apply to the thousands of triangular frames that are mounted on metal nets. The main installation held in the inner part of the glass pavilion, will be supported by the structural system before mentioned. Vertical expandable pipes with a fabric material at the end will be hanging from the structure, while sensors on the ground floor will activate their vertical movement and therefore the visual effect of a movable skin will be given.

MAISON DE LA CRÉATIVITÉ New public building in Garges-les-Gonnesse, France Tutors : Jerome Gueneau and Alfonso Giancotti

The project is located in Garges-lés-Gonnesse, a northern city of France. The new element is in relation to an existing building: a shopping center. This is semi-used building despite the recent structure. Inside it’s possilbe to find a single functioning supermarket. In front of it, there is the presence of a single level of brutal parking in reinforced concrete. It is located in the center of the city, but it is understandable that the area looks marginal in its context. The goal was to design a new building with cultural functions, in order to turn this commercial hub in a multi-purpose area for all inhabitants of the city, improving the condition of the pre-existence building, making it more popular and lived than before. In this way it is possible the coexistence of two different functions in a harmonious and balanced way. That’s the reason why we can talk about crossing-over. The building inside is composed by a cinema and a cultural center on two different levels. This stands in the center of the existing parking. The key element is the glass that despite occurs in two different ways, completely surrounding the building, giving lightness. The opaque glass panels along the three sides create plays of light and shadow. The idea of panels was born after an analysis of Le Corbusier Unitè D’Habitation. I decided to fragment the facade in pixel, after to rotate them to give movement to the big volume.

GARAGE SANREMO HOSTEL Young hostel in the center of Milan Tutors : Cino Zucchi, Paola Sturla, Matilde Cassani

The idea was to design a new kind of young hostel in the center of the city. After an important analysis related to the different hostels typologies we understood what is necessary and important for the people who use it, definig a hierarchy of spaces needed to satisfy what different target of people want. The plot of the project is near the historical center of Milan, between the Duomo and the shopping street, Via Torino. Nowadays this area is occupied by an old garage which will be dismanteled in few years. It was very important to deal with this context because it is the historical center carachterized by different building that marked the history of Milan such as the police building designed by Portaluppi exactly located in front of the area. The aim was to design not only an hostel but also a multi-purpose area. Consequently we decided to divide the site in two parties, the first one characterized by a piazza full of different elements that compose a sort of pictoresque painting inspired to the theories of Kandinsky related to his book ‘‘Point and line to plane’’. Talking about the building, it is not a traditional one because the courtyard give a completely different sensation to the people. We decided to create an underground courtyard characterized by a light steel structure, sourrounded by plants. The aim was to obtain a completely different atmosphere compared to the public piazza, creating an hidden and secret space that can be used only by people of the hostel or for public events.

NESTING MILAN Can we bring back the biodiversity to the city? Tutors : Stefano Boeri, Michele Brunello

Our first intention is to have animals and humans living without physically interfering together. The site, therefore, has to be part of the urban fabric without being too important in human activities : an urban void. The railways appeared to be the perfect combination of that two aspects for our rst approach. Indeed, parts of the railway are going to be dismantled and train activities are slowing down. Moreover, we noticed that they were punctuated by small or wide unused spaces and linked to natural elements of Milan, such as parcs, canals, or voids that could become so. With the railways,we are building a green belt Milan project to re - populate the urban voids inside Milan, which links the old city center with the suburbs, a part in development. The becoming of the railways is an important issue even within contemporary political debate. Over 1’000’000 square meters of future unused space, surrounding the old part of Milan, represents a great opportunity of action. To be able to implant animals inside the city, two scale had to be considered : the urban scale, and the animal scale. We have therefore divided the structure itself of two steps of design, one connected to the city, and one to the animals. The American architect and inventor Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) said that nature is based on a continuous relationship of tension and discontinuous compression. For our rst step of implantation of biodiversity, only the wild species already observed in Milan where chosen as a starting point, with the idea that this list will expand in the future. Birds, bats, insects, rats, ducks, shes, are the animals that can be found today. To bring these animals within our structure, we designed modular nests, all based on the same shape so they could be assembled together : the TETRAHEDRON. The nest is our main tool to bring animals inside the city. The Tetrahedron shape is the result of an accurate analysis of each animals in their natural environment, the merging of different needs and nesting habits. 51

THE SPYRAL OF ART Installation in a museum of a structure designed through the use of the computational design Tutor : Marco Hemmerling

“Never trust to general impressions, my boy, but concentrate yourself upon details’’ was my startig point for the idea linked to this project. The spyral of art means a narration through the art thanks to a new and different prospective generated by different layers of the spyral that allow people to enter in a completely different space and focusing directly with the pictures expose inside the museum. The spyral thanks to its developable surface, gives the possibility to have a journey inside the art that is related to different focus based to the position of the visitor. Furthermore using the computational design I was able to define an algorithm that generated different cones that intersected the spyral, generating holes of different dimensions in different positions. From an open planar curve linked to the geometry of the location, the algorithm generates a polisurface and the user is be able to modify different parameters such as height and thikness. After it is possible to select focal points and classify their grade of interested related to a story telling. The spiral automatically will be shaped in order to create an interactive experience for the visitor. The idea was to create an installation which can be adapted to all the museums thanks to the parameters in which it is designed.

“ The bloodthirsty old servant, popeyed as she strains forward, clutches the bag in readiness for the disembodied head. It is a ghastly image, with primary interest in the protagonists' states of mind: the old woman's grim satisfaction, Holofernes's shock, and Judith's sense of determination.

THIS MUST BE THE PLACE H2O Competition

With the progressive glacier meltdown and the continuous rise of the global temperature, thinking about floating cities lost in the middle of the ocean is no longer pure utopia, but a healthy realism. The challenge now, is to combine a sudden change of the urban system to a gradual adaptation of humans being to it. For this reason, the city we thought about lies on floating modules that are added progressively with the sea levels increasing allowing a gradual abandonment of the old urban system. Years by years the city expands and defines its form, distributing work activities below the sea level while the housing units and more public spaces above it. At the centre of each city, there will be some “artificial lungs�, that transform carbon dioxide into oxygen through artificial photosynthesis, replacing the trees that will be lost with the flooding of the earth’s crust. At the edge of the city instead, there will be a new countryside consists of aquaponics farming that will provide nutrition for humans without the use of soil. Urban connections will be guaranteed by an underwater metro network while the suburban ones through a harbour system.

CALTAGIRONE MUSEUM Exposition Cino Zucchi Architetti

During my internship of three months, I worked on different projects of different scales. The most important was the competition related to the design of the interiors of the Caltagirone ceramics museum. This is a huge museum in the center of a very important and historical city in the south of Italy. It is a very beautiful building in an abandoned state so with this competition they decided to reactivate it. The aim of the competition was to recreate an interior space and re-designing it in a new original way allowing the right exposition of all the cermics of the different historical periods.

PRIVATE HOUSE Interior design LAD - Laboratorio di architettura e design

LAD is an office based in Rome that works mainly on the interior design and competitions. During three months of internship, I had the possibility to work on different projects. One of the most important was a residential building near Rome. The project started from the design of the interior to the constrution. It allowed me to learn how a project is developed in all the phases from the most generic aspects to the most detailed one. The project that I decided to show you is a ‘‘villa’’ and what I did was related to the design of the interiors. I worked a lot on the plans after the survey, designing the space according to the needs of the client. He wanted a lux design with big spaces very well connected. After the first design I worked also on the thecnical part , it means detailed plan of the electrical system and the ventilation one. I partecipated to the contruction phase on site, understanding how the constructive process is. This experience was foundamental for my personal architectural growth. This office was my second work experience and I really learned a lot about architecture from a different point of view more related to the detail that composed a building.

INDIA HOTEL Turchetti D’Aragon Architects

Turchetti D’Aragon Architects is an office based in Paris. I worked with them for three months during my Exchange Program to the university ‘‘ENSA-PB’’ in 2014. This was my first experience in the architectural field and the first real approach to what is really the job of the architect. Working in Paris allowed me to learn different things from an international point of view. During the time I spent to this office, I worked on different projects. The first one was a small building near Paris and the aim was to redesign the roof with a new modern style. I worked mainly on the models to understand different forms linked to different possibilities to find the good solution. While the second project was related to the design of a private hotel in India. The client was very stricted with both the budget both his needs. So we presented different typologies to understand the best one. I designed principally the plans of the interior concerning the disposition of the different areas of the hotel, from the public part to the private one. I studied how an hotel is organized and all the spaces needed to satisfy all the right conditions.
