Imagining Rurbanity

After Urban Sprawl - il Pilastro A new alliance town-countryside: territorial and urban design research workshop, Bologna May 2010 Urban Center Bologna / Provincia di Bologna (represented Universities: UPC Barcelona, Politecnico di Torino, Politecnico di Milano, IUG Grenoble, FacoltĂ  di Architettura Cesena, University of Skopje) Pilastro needs Bologna to revitalize its collective and public

spaces, as Bologna needs Pilastro to re-establish it relationship with environment and countryside. This relationship is generated and structure within a system where Pilastro quarter stands as a town-countryside connector. A simple public action is therefore envisioned, based on the increase of urban fabric and social and functional mixitĂŠ, thus integrating different space scales, as well as different and interconnected transportation modes.

Dealing with sacredness of a place while the context gets farther and farther from the idea of sacred: after a deep reflection about the aspects ( components, it could be said) of sacredness, the workshop teams approached a case study whose main feature was the persistance of a wider sense of sacred (the church is still in use) that hardly merged with its urban contemporary context. Melting sacred and everyday activity by the use of space : objects like ions in a spatial osmosis,diffused in the urban area extending the space of the church and merging it with the outer space

Crossing the walls, rediscovering the river Borgo Cornalese (Torino): restoration, revitalization and eco-museum functional program - 2008 with Francesca Cavaleri and Paolo Ferrucci “Cura del patrimonio� Design Unit, prof. R. Palma, C. Occelli A landscape where the river builds everything, but at the same time is difficult to perceive. A cartographic approach points out the role of Borgo Cornalese as the gateway to its area, capable of living a new sustainable re-vitalization by rediscovering the link between the river, its landscape and the architectures it generates. The white rough concrete wall, a built symbolization of this link, becomes the tool to differentiate common and private space, strenghten existing strucutres, define the architecture of landscape and buildings.
