MARECCHIA PARK PROJECT IN RIMINI Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna Department of Architecture A.Y. 2016-17 Course on Architectural Design IV Profs. E. Mucelli, M. Cipriani, S. Rossl Students: Marco Barzanti, Ilaria Franchini, Margherita Masi The project was designed during the Laboratory of Architectural Design of the fourth year and tries to respond to the proposed theme about of the Marecchia Park in Rimini design, first on an urban scale, then descending on an architectural scale. This area is currently devoid of overall design and is often affected by flooding caused by rain and the fact that the park is located on the ancient route of the river Marecchia with the result that the vegetation can not develop properly. The theme on which we were asked to reflect and around which the project was to be developed is “A park for culture - Rimini art and crafts” which for us has translated into “exploration: learning, observing, doing”. Exploration seemed to us to be the principal means by which a person can expand his own culture and this exploration for us can be abstracted in three ways: through learning, observation and acting. But not only, within an urban park, exploration also becomes a key word of what can be accessed within it.

Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna Department of Architecture A.Y. 2016-17 Course on Architectural Restoration Profs. A. Ugolini, M. Pretelli Students: Ilaria Franchini, Margherita Masi, Eleonora Trebbi The project, set within the historic center of Cesena, provides for the restoration of the ex Augustinian Convent which is currently in a state of neglect and decay. It is an extensive building composed of a series of arms that identify two internal courtyards and on the north side it is leaning against the Church of Sant’Agostino. This, as often happens, has been altered during the course of its life, so, after a careful historical analysis, we could begin with the identification of a functional program and then with the design. The function we have chosen to revitalize this building is a cooking school in which we find not only the educational space but also a residential space and a restaurant area opened to the public. During the design we have tried to make technological and constructive choices that could not comply with current regulations, but also to respect the architecture already built.

NEW DANCE ACADEMY PROJECT IN CESENA Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna Department of Architecture A.Y. 2015-16 Course on Architectural Design III Prof. Francisco JosĂŠ Barata Fernandes Tutors: Giorgio Liverani, Giacomo Valzania Students: Ilaria Franchini, Chiara Patone

This project take place in the heart of the city of Cesena in a particular special area. In the planning we had to relate with pre-existences with strong characteristics: a former candle factory, of which the perimeter walls and a chimney remain; two archaeological excavations of Roman finds and a section of the ancient walls. Even morphologically, the project area, is identified by its characteristics: in fact the terrain is particularly steep with a total height difference of 11 meters and one side, that of the ancient wall, the area is overhanging the level of road from which it was about 2 floors above. Starting from this particular context, the project tries to respond efficiently both to the assigned functional program (that of a new dance academy) and to the needs of possible users and people who already live in the area.

URBAN RIQUALIFICATION PROJECT IN THE AREA BETWEEN VIA SALINATORE AND VIA DEI MOLINI IN FORLÌ Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna Department of Architecture A.Y. 2015-16 Course on Town Planning Prof. A. Stincheddu Students: Ilaria Franchini, Margherita Masi, Lorenzo Mazzi The project provides for the riqualification of an urban area of ​​Forlì, between via Salinatore, via dei molini and via Firenze, which is placed straddling the river Montone that flows to the west of the city’s historic center. The intent was to define a design that would make it usable and return this area to the citizenship which is currently very natural and grown spontaneously. This place has a very strong character thanks to the presence of the river and the landscape. Another strong point of the area is the proximity from the historic center, for this reason the project tries to join the urban center and identify itself as a rest area and approach to nature. The project develops starting from the hypothesis of possible functions that can take place in such a landscape or that can use a particular character here.

PROJECT FOR A NEW DISTRICT AND A STUDENT RESIDENCE IN CESENA Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna Department of Architecture A.Y. 2014-15 Course on Architectural Drawing II Profs. A. Esposito, C. Tisselli, M. D’Alessandro Students: Ilaria Franchini, Chiara Patone The project concerns an area currently occupied by C.A.P.S. (State police training center ) of Cesena and provides, according to the theme proposed for the course, the construction of a new residential and a student area. The residential area takes its own character and consists of two building types, the first one is a block that rises three floors and forms part of the street front of the district, provides the ground floor also the inclusion of businesses. The other residential type is the terraced houses that are located in the innermost area and that through their arrangement identify a central green space that is available to residents. The area destined to the student residence, that has been further developed, divides itself from the rest of the neighborhood through a road, here the style changes and the buildings adapt to the slight difference in level of the ground. There are two residential buildings in which the type of accommodation changes and a building for collective activities: a canteen, a bar and a library.

TERRACED HOUSE PROJECT IN PUGLIA Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna Department of Architecture A.Y. 2014-15 Course on Building and Architecture I Profs. A. Boeri, G. Conti, G. Chieregato Students: Ilaria Franchini, Chiara Patone The theme proposed for the course is the project for a terraced house paying particular attention to the technological aspect, especially in relation to the geographical position in which it will be hypothetically placed. The project is very simple and includes on the ground floor the living area with kitchen, dining room, living room and a bathroom, this floor close around a courtyard, while on the upper floor there is a sleeping area with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. In the courtyard, thanks to the height of the building itself, a shaded area is guaranteed which together the vegetation, contribute to improving the comfort conditions in summer. The choice of materials, as well as colors and some shading systems, have been the object of reflection to try to better respond to the needs and problems that develop in this particular geographical area through the very form of architecture.


HOLY SPIRIT CHURCH SURVEY PROJECT IN CESENA Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna Department of Architecture A.Y. 2016-17 Survey of Architecture Profs. V. Baroncini, A. M. Manferdini, F. Fallavollita Students: Ilaria Franchini, Margherita Masi, Chiara Patone, Ilaria Sasdelli

During the Architectural Survey Laboratory we took care of the relief of a portion of the Holy Spirit Church, the part that affects the altar and the area behind it. The detection techniques were learned during the laboratory such as trilateration, photogrammetry, the use of laser scanners and other useful instruments. In addition to the building geometry, was also important the material consistency and cracking and degradation.

STUDIO E RIDISEGNO DI VILLA GAZZOTTI Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna Department of Architecture A.Y. 2014-15 Course on Architectural Drawing II Profs. F. I. Apollonio, F. Fallavollita Students: Ilaria Franchini, Chiara Patone

The exercise provided for the redesign of a Palladian villa thorough a preliminary study. The version we studied has never been realized and was part of one of the three versions that Palladio had hypothesized for this commission. So we started from the design of a single plant and through the study of his treatise, his works, sketches for the other versions of the work and the building actually made, we hypothesized through the study of a model how the work would have been to appear.

STUDY AND REDESIGN OF A FARMHOUSE IN RAVARINO (MO) Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna Department of Architecture A.Y. 2013-14 Course on Architectural Design I Profs. F. S. Fera, C. Tisselli Students: Ilaria Franchini, Chiara Patone

The work concerned firstly the survey and then the redesign of a property of the Modena campaign. The complex, located in Ravarino (MO), consists of three buildings, the residential, a stable and a barchessa. Then, through the documentation gathered on site and some drawings provided, we have redesigned the rural complex first in the form of sublimids and then, for the final results, with shingles in china and paperboard models. The works I propose are therefore scans of the tables made.

Thank you Ilaria Franchini
