POint Location: Turin, Italy Project team: F. De Paola, B. Drazza, F. Faseta, I. Martella Category: Urban park redevelopment Project year: 2014-2015 Course: Project and representation Laboratory Professors: M. Graffione, A. Marotta
In the city of Turin there is a need to create a new urban centrality that differs from the old one: through the park along the river Po. POint was born with the aim of establishing a “replicable” spatial organization in such a large and fragmented context as that of the metropolitan city. This was possible through the overlap of three levels: • the cadastral lines, for the arrangement of the greenery • the Mercator grid, for the paths • points (container), as temporary structures for ludic activities.

The Mandria regional park is part of the system of protected areas of the Piedmont region. The wall that delimits it is considered a barrier and consequently, outside of these, the neighboring municipalities act autonomously, neglecting the importance that this natural resource could benefit the territory. For this reason, the Pre park area presents a strong contrast between natural, agricultural/wooded areas and industrial areas. In order to alleviate the damage already committed towards the image of the Park and improve communication between it and the surrounding municipalities, a large-scale solution has been devised by means of an over-municipal governance. A further strategy is that of local economic reactivation through the enhancement of enabling factors such as: â€˘ the promotion of the territory and its excellences; â€˘ the attraction of investments; â€˘ the qualification of human capital.
Focalization in the week
During the week, high-focus areas are defined as industrial areas, as they attract a
large number of workers, while low-focus areas are the entrances to the park, as their functions are less used.
Focalization in the weekend On the contrary, during the weekend the industrial areas are defined as having
a low focus, given their non-use, while
the entrances to the park are identified as highly focused because they attract
a greater number of users thanks to the presence of recreational activities.
Emotional aspects • disorientation: straight roads with no
alternative route and feeling of monotony; areas where landscape transformation
from residential to industrial area is absent; • insecurity: abandoned industrial areas
not very connected with the context; industrial areas with illegal activities;
• feeling of surprise: winding roads sur-
rounded by greenery; the high presence of outdoor recreation areas and the inappropriate appropriation of natural spaces; • stability: urban centers with regular
streets where the user has the feeling of
being in a familiar environment and is not encouraged to explore new places.
Disorientation Insecurity Surprise Stability
Landmark and symbolic places In the area of intervention, wide-ranging
landmarks are identified such as industrial areas and some park entrances, as they are used for orientation.
In addition, two short-range landmarks
have been identified: the cistern and the chimney of the ex-cotonificio.
The punctual elements that strengthen the emotional impact correspond to buildings of historical and architectural importance.
SUPRA-MUNICIPAL GOVERNANCE strategies to improve the Park’s image
• Mitigation Attenuation of industries and systems in contrast with the rural landscape in which they are located.
• Extraurban roads Safety of suburban roads and study of new road sections to integrate slow mobility system.
• Cycle paths Restoration of existing cycle paths and creation of new routes.

The project is part of the Vanchiglia district, a stoneâ€™s throw from the center and bordered by the presence of the Dora river. On the edge of the neighborhood, stands the Luigi Einaudi Campus (CLE); a building of remarkable architectural quality, designed by the architect Foster. Despite this, the main problem of the campus is the relationship with the adjacent outdoor public spaces. It is for this problem that a system with a linear texture has taken shape, which creeps into the different spaces by relating them, giving them continuity of design and materials. The generator was the elevation of the CLE which, given its grid, provided the guidelines for the system, to which are also added the projections of the inclinations in plan of the surrounding buildings. The result is these lines, which in some cases mark leaps in altitude, in other changes of floors or functions; these slowly, like tentacles, take over spaces. This plant, given its versatility, can also be reproduced in future interventions in the vicinity, thus giving the opportunity to maintain an overall design. The various functions therefore take part in this shirt, localized on the basis of certain characteristics, both physical and contextual. The main objective is therefore to create a design that can be reclined for different functions, addressed not only to students but also to the users of the neighborhood.

Potrero de Garay, CĂłrdoba (AR) I. Martella Weekend house 2018 Internship S. Giannini, S. Gomes, P. Maccario
The project consists of a single-family house, with garage and atelier, located in the suggestive landscape of the sierra of Cordoba. It is essential to take into account the clientâ€™s requests, the type of culture, the climatic and orographic conditions of the site. Once the steel frame construction system was defined, as it was quick to assemble, and the structural module, emphasized by the location of the openings, we moved on to designing the internal environments. These are devoid of fixed scores, in fact the rooms are defined by wardrobes only where separation is needed. Open spaces are preferred and the use of the large window dividing the living room from the terrace is a way of expanding these room. The windows, through their simple cut, allow you to have a perception of the external wooded landscape as if it were inside the house for a total connection with nature.

Bra, Cuneo (IT) I. Martella Apartments 2018 Internship S. Giannini, S. Gomes, P. Maccario
The task was to refine the previous project proposal for apartments in a building located in the historic center of the town of Bra. The goal is to improve the division of the two floors and the internal distribution of the accommodation in order to make everything functional and attractive to the buyer. To pursue this goal, it is necessary to catapult into the role of the customer, only by identifying with it is, perhaps, possible to achieve the result that comes closest in meeting its needs. Do not underestimate the detail that each customer has different needs, therefore you must have multiple visions and be multifaceted in proposing solutions that differ in dimension, type (duplex, studio apartment, etc), number of views and so on.

Alessandria, Italy Historical research and metric survey 2018-2019 Master thesis C. Tocci, E. Piccoli
The fortified citadel of Alessandria was born in the XVIII century within a large cicuit of fortresses â€œalla moderna.â€? The research is centered on the study of the second building born inside the bastion, between 1760 and 1768: the San Carlo barrack. After a brief historical analysis regarding the context in which the factory is inserted and an identification of the typological characteristics that allows to associate the San Carlo to the types of barracks models released in 1700, the thesis aims to investigate the design criteria and the construction techniques used for the construction of the neighborhood through the critical reading of bibliographic and archival sources and direct feedback with the factory. In addition to expanding the knowledge on the history of the citadel of Alessandria and the construction of Savoy Piedmont, the material produced in this research could be the beginning on which to set up a diagnostic study for a project of recovery and functionalization of the architectural heritage.
ading of historical ure.
GOAL Understand the design and technological configurations of the San Carlo barrack
METHODOLOGY Archival sources (Turin State Archive and ISCAG in Rome), such as the registri containing the procurement contracts and iconography, have made it possible to understand the management and progress of the construction site, together with those constructive and technologies that it would not have been possible to know because they cannot be achieved through direct measurement alone.
Bibliograhic sources Where the documents were not exhaustive, the role of the bibliography and direct survey was essential.
RESULTS Production of graphic works: â€˘ as a visual representation of the project and the construction site (technological and construction solutions) described in the bibliographic and archival sources. â€˘ as a support to conduct an accurate diagnostic campaign for a future architectural heritage recovery project.
Metric survey It made it possible to concretely verify the information obtained from the sources and to deepen what was hardly mentioned.

From the survey, the presence of a well was verified, at the extreme south in the central corridor.
According to the documents, there were two wells, the other in the north.
Two of the 14 chimneys that stand on the roof are the flues of the two circular plan ovens. The flue pipes are inclined inwards; the dotted line indicates their starting point, with the dotted line the deviation that is recognized by the position of the chimneys.
Change of the vaulted apparatus at the ends of the corridors: from barrel vault it tilts to the top of the “wolf’s mouth”. It is assumed that given its position, in correspondence with the access portals of the factory, this inclination was made to thicken the layers below the steps of the ground floor.
Change of the vaulted apparatus in two rooms: where from a barrel vault, on a horizontal plane, we move to an inclined barrel. These rooms are in correspondence with the latrines on the ground floor and this would suggest that this accentuated inclination is due to the presence of the waste water pipes.

Above the pilots are laid the wooden radici with a length of 3,09m and 13x13cm in section.
The two radici and the head of the pole are secured by means of an ankle (long iron nail).
To strengthen the longitudinally placed radici, â€œbricks at right angles are placed between the interstices.â€?
As a further reinforcement of this system, called telaro, there are the wedges (with a minimum length of 77cm).
The stretch from the head of the pilots to the second radici is filled with mezzanella bricks;
a large layer of mortar stretches over these bricks and then begins to build the walls.
First floor_typical floor • Mantel H
The mantels that are found throughout the first floor were used mainly in wartime as the rooms were lofted to increase the number of lodgings.
In the first floor there are two connection systems: one is visible (chains), while the other (radici) was discovered thanks to the archive documents. • Chains To avoid stress phenomena caused by the thrust of the vaults and the weight of the massif, there are tie rods or chiavi vive transversely to the longitudinal walls; thec se are also visible in the first floor.
modifications of the original system
First floor_vaults In the building there is a system of connections, called telaro, not visible by means of direct surveys, in fact it became known thanks to the archival documents. The telaro has the function of balancing the stone slabs that form the cornice and this occurs through wooden elements, called radici, and iron rods. Inside the perimeter walls of the first floor, “above the lose (stone slabs) that form the crown of the cornice” there are the radici (roots), or rather the wooden elements. • Radici are connected: ra
- between them through an iron clamp that is fixed with four nails.
- with partition walls through tie rods that will have one end nailed to the radice and the other with a bolt embedded in the masonry.
- at the four corners with iron bands where one half is nailed to the radice and the other, which ends with a stamp, fits into the stone slab of the cornice.

The attic was also used for the housing of soldiers, in fact the “steps” had the function of a couch.
In the central corridor there is a vaulted system that alternates between raised vaults and barrel vaults.
On the sides of the central corridor are the rooms with a vaulted barrel vault; the ends of these end with a “gooseneck” vault.

Graphic projects Among the various interests there are two that I particularly like to cultivate: drawing (whether digitally or by hand) and music (I collect vinyl and more). In addition to finding unknown vinyls, I focus on the graphics of their covers, analyzing the layout, the colors, fonts and reflecting on the level of visual communication that the artist has managed to achieve. Below are some of the graphic projects for music albums or single that the artists have commissioned me.
