#The Infection Genesis of a new life This 2 rooms apartment is the first floor of a old complex built in the 30’s, made of typical local tuff stone. The young owners wanted to improve the quality of the space exploiting the beautiful 4 meters high vaulted ceiling by adding a mezzanine for the more private space of their bedroom. The idea was to keep the existing state of the apartment as clean as possible, improving technologically installations and energy saving and add character by creating a complex system of furniture embedded in the house. A generative pattern made out of cells grows along the wall as a new plant, embracing the space. This system contains all the functional activities (storage, bookshelves, pentry, closet, wardrobe) of the house and improves acoustic performances.

#The Gentle Genius This 4 storey building is composed of a lower part built in 40’s and an extension from end of 70’s. The owners expressed their need to give a new esthetic to the whole building and to improve the current thermohygrometric conditions of the rooms, with a low budget. The request was met by adopting an insulation system which covers the existing façades, and replacing windows and shades with more efficient ones. A pattern was study to give the EPS layer a dynamic appearence. The façade, exposed to the sunlight for almost the entire day, changes constantly thanks to light/shadows conditions.

#the New Hera of Altamura

A few kilometers from Altamura, a small town in the South of Italy, about 30.000 dinosaur footprints were discovered in 1999 in a idle quarry. Currently it is the Europe’s richest and most important site. A Jurassic Park was proposed for this site, in order to preserve the footprints, to interest the scientific world and to activate possibilities of economical growth. The whole site is covered by a light structure of steel and ETFE and solar panels. This “tent� hosts all the facilities: the indoor park, the museum, hotels, restaurants, scientific and editorial center. Outdoor was the green entertainment park. The design was conceived to be sustainable thanks to energy saving and producing system.

#Dark Matter Watershed On June 20th, the temporary installation Dark Matter was unveiled in Barletta, southern Italy. The installation is located in one of the towers of the beautiful, more than a thousand years old castle of Barletta. Dark Matter is the result of an investigation on the theme of the water. The manifastation of what has been discovered by man and what is still a mistery is shown in this installation. The 17m sculpture is unveiled through an opening on the ground of the top floor where the film The Low Lying Countries by Maurice Nio is on display above a large, unfathomable expanse of water. The entire project is co-financed by the European Union.

The design for the lifeguard’s house in Nesselande is very simple and compact. Because of its convex, perfect elliptical shape, it is not only spatially compact, but it also looks compact. And it is simple because the design is an idea. Everyone will immediately understand the idea: a view of sand, or a sandeye, that has 180 degrees overlooking of the beach. The beachguard’s shelter is vandal-proof as the number of entrances on the ground floor is minimized. In addition, the outside with a hard, durable finishing with a top layer of sand. Indestructible. The inside walls are also provided with a hard and smooth low-maintenance finishing. Furthermore, because of the convex shape it’s hard to climb. The glass of the eye in the winter is protected by translucent polyester panels. Impenetrable.

#the stable Flow In an existing building in Altamura, the task was to renovate the apartment on the 2nd floor, with the addition of a private elevator. Due to technical reasons, the partition between zones stayed the same as the former configuration. Division between private and public areas is nullified; permeation between active area and rest area is introduced in order to avoid useless dark connectors. The connecting areas between closed rooms develop like a liquid from a source, which is obviously the entrance of the apartment: the liquid develops on a surface in the same way as the path of the lodger defines the connection between different spaces. The walls, when necessary, enclose private spaces. The rest of the areas are fully connected, increasing possibility of diffusion of light and ventilation. The furniture flows along the walls to increase the perception of fluidity.

#Ode 34’46.776” al Passante Impreparato

This historical site at the moment is little used because of the vehicular traffic. To convert this situation, we intended to create an intimate and spacious pedestrian area. Through street furniture that prevent traffic and parking, and a covered corridor originally inspired by the “Pergolato” of the nineteenth century, we create a protected area, interacting with the surrounding architectural space. A tent that recalls the “centrino”, typical domestic element of the local culture. Besides being a decorative element with a strong historical value, it saves the passersby from the scorching sun in summer. At night, the lighting system integrated in the benches, creates a play of light that visually adds another layer to the square. In this way, the unprepared passerby begins his visit to the city from Piazza Madonna dei Martiri.

#Stone is not Silent

This publication was commisioned by the italian architecture magazine “l’Arca” for its periodic issue on contemporary architects. This article was about the possibility of space perception. The accepted view of quantum mechanics is that matter consists exclusively of vibration. Buildings and people, ideas and dreams, events and words are all vibrating and everything generates its own, unique frequency. We cannot perceive these vibrations. Our senses are simply too sluggish to be able to observe the world as a web of energy. Those images were conceived as visualizations of the spirit of the space as we could perceive it.

Artist’s model and 3d model

The municipality of Monter organized a competition for artists for a new landmark on the coast, in order to create a visual connection between the city center and the beach. Zandloper is a new projection on the horizon, different than the exhisting windmill, the cranes or the bell tower, the distinctive gateway from the past to the future. The Hourglass is the epitome of technonature perfection: is it coming from the water, from the sand, from another planet or is a creature of the man? Construction schemes

#The Last Seconds of a Princess

On August 31, 1997 at 00:25, on a Mercedes W140, Henri Paul drived at 180 Km/h to death under the Alma tunnel in Paris. The driver died and with him, the english princess and her lover. Ten years later, an image of a hand holding a burning torch was placed on top of the tunnel. The hand of Diana, Diana Lucifera, goddess of the moon and the light. This corrispondence from the top (the memorial) and the underworld (the accident) was gen-

erated by the twist between the slow history and the fast destiny. This reflection inspired the project. Can this new tunnel in Amersfoort hide a secret? What if the princess of light is passing on her silver chariot drawn by white stags? The arrows of silver light she just fired from her silver bow, are heading the darkening sky.

#She’s Out of my League Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) is developing the first container terminal on Maasvlakte 2. It will be an innovative terminal, operating and competing on a global scale. But RWG embodies also a strong vertical component, the vertical axis of sustainability. In our proposal for the new building facilities for RWG we want to emphasize the intersection of both axes, the soul of RWG. The workshop building opens towards the sun, almost literally, with the intention to collect sunlight to produce energy and rainwater, and rainwater for the grey-water circuit. On the other side of this axis it collects heat and cold from seawater, energy which can be collected in thermal storages deep under the surface. This is what we mean with: the vertical axis of sustainability.

#Sensing the Waves

The “Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci” was opened in 1988 and donated to the city of Prato by Enrico Pecci. It is situated on the periphery of Prato, near the exit of the A11 highway, a strategic spot where, from the first floor, you can see the skyline of Florence. As opposed to the rather rigid, mechanical character of the existing museum building, partly inspired on the industrial textile markets in Prato, the new part looks fluid and ecstatic. It embraces the existing building and touches it only there where needed for the circular plan. The tower gauges the cultural mood, in search of new movements. Bird’s Eye View

#Barrierefreies Wohnen The existing urban design framework is the reference for the new planning. The proposal is a two-story buildings, not to dominate the neighborhood. Two buildings connected by a glass joint, are shifted from each other and thus develop a full scale building volume, integrated into the topography. The internal organization is visible from the outside. The patio is designed as a stimulating space, supported by color variations.

Plans

Worksite

All eleven units are linked directly here. All rooms and balconies of the residential complex are conceived barrier-free. The budget cost of the public housing is limited. Therefore, the volume of the building is extremely simple, structural walls support the building, the spans are reasonable, the supply and disposal paths run through the building. The primary structure consists of a concrete floor slab and reinforced concrete slabs.

#WWIIormhole Crossing Time and Space Our aim was to create a time machine that leads visitors to the experience of the Second World War. The heart of the Museum building is a dramatic space, which seems to suck up the visitors from the entry, moving them toward the sky. This space is the embodiment of the turning point, and makes it tangible and experimental. Public exhibition on the first and second floor together with the other functions are organized around this central space and enclosed in a square building 70 by 70 meters big. This box is placed on

a pedestrian designed landscape, which contains the more public functions and parking. In contrast to the monumental space ‘wormhole’ in the interior, the facades appear fragile. The stone facade surfaces seem to crack under the pressure of hostile fire. The “Wormhole” hosts another fragile element, a cloud of mirrors which is the link between the Museum and the city. It allows the visitors to experience the view of the city from the core of the building and viceversa.

#Il Giardino di Limoni Connecting Continuously The extension of the Villa della Regina was designed with the intent of becoming the center the entire complex. Welcoming visitors and generating a system of fluxes transmitted through the villa throughout the area. The sequence of experiences begins in the inner space that is divided into two distinct areas: a private part that

#FARE Musica a Pistoia The project focused on creating a new space near the city of Pistoia for developing, teaching and discovering new musical approaches. The project was composed by a big Concert hall for 1800 people, a Modern music school and a building for musical therapy and health activities

related to the next hospital. These three buildings forming a public square were located into an open system of great green spaces. The main thought was to stimulate a reflection about the relationship between Architecture and Music.

Music Centre Site Plan

The music center from the canal

The geometry of the concert hall was inspired by a Platonic solid, that in the past has always been associated to musical and mathematical perfection. The volume was gained by the intersection of three heptahedrons (the number 7 always appears in music) in line with three points of view located in three important urban places: the bell tower in town and two peaks of the facing mountains. Therefore this irregular volume revealed his nature only in these three directions. Holographic Glass Detail


Between the main container and the hall itself, shops, bars, cafĂŠs, expos, administration offices, exhibitions and technical rooms were located following the spiral movements.

Model Vieaw

The hall was conceived as a spiral around the stage, improving the sensation of being surrounded by the music. On this spiral the seats for the public were posed, equally distanced from the musicians: the differences between the audience was almost nullified.

URBAN PLAN IN VILLEPINTE

Job/ Feasibility study, concept design, design development, graphic development, presentation Program/ Conception of new housing development for 10000 incoming inhabitants

Location/ Villepinte (Paris)- FR

Budget/ ...

Class/ P9 - Projet Territorial

Size/ 1000 hectares

Teacher/ Arch. Patrice Noviant

Grade/ 15/20


#PROTOTYPING demographic growth

The urban planning is based on a hypothetical population growthof 10.000 people. The district of Villepinte is located 20 kilometres away from Paris, in the well-know suburbs. Villepinte is one of the major pole around the airport of Roissy / Charles de Gaulle and the economic platform Paris Nord II / Exhibition centre. It benefits by exceptional transport facilities: 3 RER stations, 2 highway A1 and A3. Its surface is 1037 hectares and its population counts 36742 inhabitants. The demographic explosion is the cause and the consequence of the massive urbanization.

Territorial framework + Composition Scheme

The city seems to be divided into heterogeneous zones, which often correspond to different districts developed in different periods. This distinction is stressed by the division of the territory caused by important infrastructures, by the impartial distribution of facilities and by the presence of parks: every zone differs for typologies, functions, identity. The solution was to unify the district improving the quality of two perpendicular urban axes, amplifying existing poles and creating new ones across them.


The forecast leads to look for a replicable architectural prototype, already existing in town. The most interesting is the “Pyramids” one, a 70’s housing model by Arnauld and Barat architects.

Pyramids’ Schema + Urban Models

The Pyramids’ model evolution provides to improve the housing density, respecting the composing design scheme.

Tetris Model + Masterplan + Section

The apartments’ assemblage moves horizontally and vertically improving the space compacting: the module “ L “ (12mx12mx3m) develops in height creating open gaps intended for terraces for each apartment. 4 houses’ Unit, with external and internal connections, can be assembled in 2 units for 8 houses (24mx12m), 4 units for 16 houses (24mx24m) and more. New development composing was based on overlapping two kind of wefts: 1 – the regular one, obtained by the model developed by Arnauld’s Pyramids and Barat. 2 – the “Strengths” one, extended from the Cardo and Decumano axes, generated by fluxes of the existing emergences, enlarging the dense housing development.


“Architecture and music have always been my main interests. During my personal research about design approaches I realized that these two forms of expression are closer than I could imagine. The same terms used in a field take stimulant meanings in the other one: form, structure, rhythm, tone and so on. The music, as sequence of sounds and silences, notes and pauses approaches to how I conceive Architecture: harmonic sequence of full and empty, closed volumes and empty spaces, light and colour. Both could stimulate all five senses, in a Copernican way with the man at the centre of them.�


Giacomo Garziano, interested in maths, science and music since young age, studied at the School of Science and at the Conservatory of Music in Italy. He graduated at the School of Architecture of Florence in July 2008 with a project for a Music Center, after having studied at the ‘Beaux-Arts’ School of Art in Paris and having partecipated in a collaboration project at the Architectural Association in London as tutor for the School of Architecture of Florence. During his studies he gained professional experience collaborating with the academies and local offices. After graduating, he worked for several years for NIO architecten in Rotterdam, managing design teams and developing projects ranging from public buildings, infrastructures to artworks. Currently he’s working on 3d free form modeling and computational design based projects, according to his vision of space harmonically evolving around man.
