STUDENT HOUSING After developing a general masterplan in a big team of 10 students, we were asked to work in pair of two and focuse on the project of a building inside the area. The functional choice of placing the student housing inside the area was given by the presence of professional and educational insitution nearby, such as: Bocconi University, IED, Professional Institute. The typology of the corridor house responds to the needs of student life, arranging the apartment cells along a common balcony on the north side, and a private one on the south. The apartment is bounded by four sides, two blinded sides (adjacent to the other appartment), and two open facades (north and south). The service room of the apartment faces on the common corridor, while the private rooms face on the southern private balcony. On the ground floor of the building there are rooms with semi-public functions: library, study rooms, events area. Those rooms face on public plazas and gardens and work toghether with the park system that sourrounds it. First and second floor are for the apartments. On the top there is a open space area with facilities such as loundry and common kitchen, that can be used ad a social area for the students. The rooftop is shaded by a covering structure that crowns the building.

HOUSE FOR SINGLE FATHERS A temporary house in a urban void. What does it mean? The temproary house is a place that people call home for a short but essencial time of their life: student life, traveller, worker... Student were free who would then ding. The needs user gave shape
to chooce the users of their project, become the concept of their buinand social condition of the chosen to each temporary housing project.
House for single fathers: â€œThe space betweenâ€? embrace the theme of temporary house in a social perspective: the life of a separated father. Separated fathers suffers of an abrupt change of lifestyle and fall of social status, they often have to leave their houses and move back to their parents. Our aim was to give them a chance of redemption, offering not only a low cost apartment but also the oportunity to meet other people of the same conditions in a social housing life. Kids would then have the canche of visiting their fathers and other children, feeling like home. A great importance was given to the location: when we talk about social issues and programs, we are used to deal with the periphery background of a city. Starting from some existing programs in the city of Turin and NY, we study how a social house could work in an historical city center, such as Brera in Milan.

The house is a prefabricated box and the living spaces are made by a modular furniture, that creates different rooms. The box is 5,5x4m and the furniture developes itself in different levels, so that every surface has its function.

MEMO R I A L Museum One can say that the city itself is the collective memory of its people, and like memory it is associated with objects and places. The city is the locus of the collective memory. - Aldo Rossi
The Memorial Museum to Klaster Laster Sv. Anezky Ceske is set in the city of Prague, in front of the Vltava river, close to KarlĹŻv most bridge. What conditioned the project was the presence of the St. Agnes Monastery in our project area and its inner courtyard. The monastery built by Agnes was the most visible and the most modern architectural work of the thirteenth century in Prague, worthy of its founder. Completely restored, nowadays the building hosts a collection of medieval art and a concert Hall. Putting a Jewish Museum side-by-side to an antique Christian Churcg was

the concept that mirrors the identity of the city of Prague, where histories have shared the same background for ages. It is important then to tie the past to the present, this time through the architectural composition. The museum developed along the axes of the convent: the exhibition halls are distributed and enclose inner courtyards of the building, on different levels. A system of ramps and stairs opens to the courtyard of the Convent of St. Agnes, where they share a oper air space for meeting in an architectural, religiuous and historical dialogue .

OPEN AIRSenegal MARKET Our first approach was based on the analysis of the traditional features of the market, mainly focusing on the culture and social context. Reflecting on the meaning of the market place we highlighted its qualities and tourned them into potential driving forces for our project: the market is not only a trading place, it is a space for sharing life, where diffent activities take place. Since tha market shapes itself according to the weekly schedule, it needs a flexible organization. Our project responds to users’ needs and to senegalese habits. The space is designed to meet daily activities such as prayer time, daily meals, celebration and commercial exchange. The initial concept was developed starting from the study of a round shape which derives from weaved straw baskets, traditionally carried on the top of women’s head wich is a symbolic image of the african spirit. Another inspiring image was the one of the traditional senegalese house: it has a round shape with a inner court enli-

ghtned by a cone that let the light enter in, creating a suffused and suggestive atmosphere. The circle is used to build for communal space as well as private homes. Therefore we decided to reinterprete and play with this form, applying local structural techniques and natural materials, adopting a sustainable approach and fine lines. The final result is an open air market that becomes a new landmark for the community and territory, and give a new place for gathering and sharing different activities and moments of everyday life. As far as we are concerned, we think this plan responds efficiently to people’s needs without having an aggressive impact on their cultural and natural heritage, since it was conceived starting from senegalese traditional construction systems and reviewed in a modern approach. We aimed to design an unconventional architecture, and finally we managed to convey the idea of a lively and welcoming space for everyone.

RECUIRE LA VILLE Marrakech
The project activity involved the redevelopment of an area on the border between two contrasting realities: the ancient city of Medina and the Ville Nouvelle, outside the walls. The first, characterized by an almost labyrinthine urban fabric; the second, instead, opens into large and noisy avenues and buildings are distributed patchy. The main idea was to “patch up” the city starting from the need of public spaces with better quality.
JARDIN MAJORELLE STATION STATION
We developed a master plan that includes a long green strip near the walls, with small plazas equipped and shaded and water tanks to cool off. The garden becomes a promenade that follows the wall alignment. In the other area above we decided to rebuild the urban front along the main axes, with a commercial ground floor and residential on upper floors. The heart of the area is a semi-public garden, with different small plaza and playgrounds for children.
The inspiration started from the presence of the villa of Ives Saint Laurent and its gardens Majorelle. Here the garden takes shape with curved paths, to invoke the idea of the garden’s most secret, to discover..
All the works were finally presented in front of representatives of the Order of Architects of Morocco,with critics and observations that have matured projects.
