Shanling bridge is the most important infrastucture of the city of Xi’an as it is the main entrance to the town.This is an existing structure which has been requested to be extended via a cycle lane and a pedestrian lane for both directions. In addition, a raised passage was also required to cross the four lanes for cars.
The design choice was therefore to give an iconic structure to emphasize character to the structure to emphasize the value of the main entrance to the city, opting for three arms that cross the bridge creating a unique system, almost like a sculpture. In addition we wanted to give a character of “experience” to those who cross the bridge through the
use of green bands, seats and ramps designed to create a veritable entrance to the city. The bridge size is 1.8 km for a width of about 12 meters at present. The extension therefore concerns the grafting of other cyclopedon tracks for a width of 5 meters each. The structure of the existing bridge is in reinforced concrete where each pylon has a diameter of 80 cm and arranged in
rows of four at a constant pace every 30 meters, except for three central bays where the distance grows up to 50 meters. the new cyclopedon grafts will therefore have a structure independent of that of the existing bridge but aligned to it with a dimension of 50 cm for reinforced concrete pillars. Even the structures that cross the bridge have been designed been designed with an independent structure,

in steel. the type of structure used is that of the reticular, which unloads the weights directly onto anchored reticular pylons which in turn rest on reinforced concrete foundations. The reticular beams made of steel hollow profiles will be welded by means of handkerchiefs and plates. The main structures will then be covered by steel slats with a variable pitch depending on whether it is a parapet or a simple covering

of the supporting structure. To conclude the technical aspects, particular attention was paid to the risk of rising water from the river below. The design strategy used is that of folding through triangulations and folds of the surfaces which, bending over themselves with sharp cuts and folds, create a spatial continuity for the entire length of the bridge. This continuity is emphasized by the fact that, for example, surfaces that
delimit the parapets rise to become the walls of the pedestrian crossing at high altitude or in other cases the surfaces themselves become seats or pots for the green. In addition, the system of different densities of slats tend to blend these surfaces, creating also a game of visual achievements and effects of light and shadow that underline the spatial complexity.
Four distinct phases have been planned for the construction. In the first phase the pillars and beams are designed to support the cycle path and separated from the existing structure by means of an expansion joint. successively the reinforced concrete slab will be added. In the third phase, the steel lattice structures will pass to the concrete plinths previously made by means of steel plates with bolts.
Finally, the covering phase will be carried out through the steel slats. The size of the slats varies according to structural requirements, passing from a few millimeters to profiles larger than 5 cm. The slat system will be welded directly to the reticular steel structure which forms a true reticular tube.
he main challenge in this project is not only engineering but above all to create a new lendmark for the city of Xiâ€™An but that does not obstruct the view towards the city and the river park it passes through. therefore the choice to opt for lamellae and reticular structures were guided by the need not to close but to allow the environment to glimpse through the new realization. In other words, the structure, even if of considerable
size, does not want to stand as a monument but wants to enhance, frame and intrigue the user to explore the urban and natural context that is going through. The shades of lamellas therefore tend to show and make aware the fighter who is progressively leaving behind a natural environment and entering the urban context of the metropolis of Xiâ€™an.
steel, water and green blend in a single system that plunges the user and tries to slow him down from the hectic life, giving him points of view and spaces for reflection while in the distance the city stands out with its sounds and lights.

The essence of this project is therefore noted in rest areas, small squares and seats in contact with the green. The real strength of this intervention is therefore as already mentioned, to create a pleasant walk to approach the city and not simply task of enlarging an existing structure. The idea is therefore also to favor the alternative viability of the flows that enter the city center every day.

the materials used for the finishes are cement facing and wood with the clear I intend to create welcoming spaces, which transmit calm and warmth to those who live this experience. The idea is therefore to create a space usable all day as a sort of small areas annexed to the bridge but at the service of the whole area.

INCUBATOR RESEARCH CENTER PROJECT DESIGN

RESEARCH CENTER the incubator research center is a multifunctional complex in the immediate outskirts of the city of Xiâ€™an. Specifically, it is a center for the development and testing of engines for electric cars and an office and representative tower. In fact, the tower houses over 58 offices of various sizes as well as two conference areas, a showroom, a cafeteria and storage
areas. on the contrary, in the two lower volumes, the functions of measuring and destructive tests on car batteries are arranged. The compositional strategy was to create in the system to create squares and outdoor spaces designed to accommodate workers, visitors and guests of the center.
glass cuts and folds interact with each other creating a unitary system between the three different volumes and between the interior and exterior spaces, immersing the user in a continuous space. The highest volume, that of the tower, creates a reference point, as a landmark for the entire area, while the two lower slats dialogue with the same compositional logic with the base of the tower.
To fulfill the direct lighting problem for the two factories, roof cuts have been designed with sunblinds that shield the radiations during the summer, guaranteeing the correct lighting all year round for those working inside. In this project the greatest difficulty is It was therefore to create a homogeneous design for three distinct buildings. Furthermore, the choice of using three different types of glass, with three different
Diagram 3D axo different layers
types of glass, with three different transparency indices, makes it immediately possible to identify the representative functions from the refreshment and showroom areas from service areas such as stair-lift bodies and archive spaces. The choice of having free facades and strong folds meant that the structure was set back from 1.20mt from the facade, a regular structure with a 10m x 10mt mesh with a variation of the structural
Diagram facade system
mesh near the green square in front thought as a space for relaxation and representative of the idea of green â€‹â€‹ economy that the research center put forward. The fold of the building thus creates a large optical cone from the main straa to the internal courtyard, aimed at intriguing visitors and arousing their emotions.
the overall height of the tower is of 55 meters served by a stairway independent from that of the base, thus designed to separate the flows between the different users. at the top of the basement consisting of two floors plus a mezzanine was designed a large garden roof protected by the windows that surround it creating a suggestive but reserved space with the ability to peer into the glass folds of the structure the fast life
that flows to the lower floors. the interior spaces constantly illuminated by the large glass cuts, the double heights, the green roof and the wide courts in front of it make sure that workers and visitors of this impressive research and development center are constantly immersed in a functional system and with excellent working standards. moreover, the structure is designed to work 24 hours a day
thanks to the exhibition spaces, fixed and temporary inside, to the refreshment areas and the square in front, designed to host exhibitions. The arrangement of the volumes has been studied according to constant lighting, through solar irradiation studies in fact the whole complex, exploits solar radiation to the maximum limiting the use of artificial lighting systems.
another important aspect was that of constant dialogue with the urban context in which the building is located. In fact, near the project lot there are two important arteries of access to the city constantly trafficked and therefore a source of noise. The choice was therefore to place a large courtyard on which the offices face, environments that require not only adequate direct lighting but also tranquility during the daylight hours.
In this way, by placing the two factories and the basement with rest and exposure functions on a perimeter basis, it was possible to opt for the location of the office spaces in the optimal position.
Furthermore, it was possible to use the access from the main roads for the entrances to the goods unloading and control systems so as not to have to invade the main square with operations of storage and loading of materials. finally, the challenge of this project is represented by the idea of maintaining â€‹â€‹ an almost industrial character as the whole intervention is part of an industrial area undergoing redevelopment.
In order to fulfill this explicit request of the competition, it was decided to use fair-faced cement inside the factories. I intend to recall an industrial character and contrast it with the transparency of glass and metal of the lamella characteristic of office architecture.
the choice, therefore, of folded surfaces that reflect with shadows and reflections of lights and the accurate use of lamellae and steel profiles both for the tower body and the two factories in front, are integrated with the aperi spaces that are inserted between the volumes creating visual cones and optical goals from the inside to the outside and from the outside to the inside of the buildings
creating a spatial continuity without creating visual barriers in every direction. also the choice of plantings and the location of the green near the glazed areas is directed to create a continuity between inside and outside, almost obsessive in this design. moreover, the placement of common and larger areas in the base of the tower is aimed not to fragment the space as in the office areas in order to create large spaces and windows
opening on both sides so as to create, for events one totally unique space between exterior and exterior, not only limited to a visual continuity but going beyond and creating a real physical continuity, an immense open space that makes space dynamic, almost as if the free space englobed the whole building, dematerializing and making space fluid.

as well as the lava of a volcano, fluid and inexorable invests and transforms the landscape, just like a fluid flow fills and empty spaces and generates a new panorama. the fluid and variable forms that apparently ignore the existing are inserted and create new spaces and new resources. The purpose of this project is not to repel but to distort.
in the south of the metropolis of Milan, in the agricultural park during the last decades there has been a disorderly growth of urban and industrial centers, leaving among them large empty spaces, now unusable for agriculture and often abandoned. the urban centers themselves, almost dead neighborhoods during the day, assist unarmed massacres created
TOP VIEW Render view
by poor urbanization of the area. The purpose of this intervention is therefore to break the assiduous dependence of these small urban centers on the great pole of the city of Milan and create spaces in which the green and agricultural nature of the South Park returns to have a generator role and at the same time provide equipment and services to these urban centers.
with these intentions Magma tries to incorporate green water and buildings into a single system, through covered walks in the nature, waterfront, recreating the urban fabric and redeveloping buildings now in disuse. Specifically, the entire project includes spaces for laboratories of the agricultural university, libraries, greenhouses and theoretical classrooms. But as mentioned before also equipment such as auditorium, coworking
spaces and cohousing aimed at a renewal of the concept of living the sazio, the society and the territory. The sinuous and delicate forms of the intervention are placed in a harmonious way in the context, as well as a contained height and a studied relationship between the existing and the new intervention are aimed at not excessively impacting the existing one.
The dynamism of this intervention is another important aspect, the soft lines give almost the idea of an â€‹â€‹ infinite system, which can extend for an infinite space and creating with its sudden changes of direction innumerable visual glimpses and ideas of interest. Magma is not limitable magma can not be caged. The walks covered with large holes that frame the context, the large windows designed as subtraction fluid matter and the
RENDER VIEW waterfont area
system of holes in the large 600-seat auditorium that extends into the reservoir are designed as unique spaces aimed at enhancing the area today gray and empty.
The challenge of Magma is to break with the past, with a well-defined box space and the will of this intervention is to underline how the space between built and natural risen has no limit. As after a lava flow, new life is generated, so after Magma new spaces are created, conceived as a fusion of the surrounding territory.
in the same way also the tongues of green are inserted in the blocks, involving the whole context, almost like color discolorations that tend to merge with the existing one. Specifically, the entire intervention does not want to act as an immense infrastructure that covers and devastates the territory but has the aim of unifying in a unitary way the urban context that today appears fragmented and closed.
In fact, the second key word of this project is openness, both in a strict sense in terms of design, to open up to the resources of the territory. The choice of fluid forms to perform the functions listed above was the most appropriate, as it generates complex spaces without distinguishing main areas from those intended for services. Furthermore, Magma aims to be identifiable by contrasting with the boxy and anonymous
FLOOR PLAN Diagrammatic plan
volumes of the context. The structure is therefore considered as a link, a connection between nature and andropized, between existing and new between past and future. The undefined, apparently random forms tend to destabilize the observer, accustomed to a rigor apparently existing between blocks and streets often caged in an incomprehensible rigidity. Even the innermost spaces of these buildings, like the greenhouses,
with the glass windows that reach the ground, want to create unique spaces, through the geometries and the entrance of natural resources in enclosed spaces. therefore, the will is to present itself as a manifestation of the complexity of human thought and innovation, reaffirming that over the years there has been a change in spatial conception, greater complexity and not simply combining the spatial subdivision of spaces.
thought and innovation, reaffirming that over the years there has been a change in spatial conception, greater complexity and not simply combining the spatial subdivision of spaces. The work is therefore urban scale as it includes the entire system of equipment and spaces that make an urban space livable.
There is no presumption of substituting a metropolis like Milan but creating an alternative to the flows that every day move towards the metropolis, guaranteeing services for green areas and leisure facilities and above all by giving back a primary role to the South agricultural park. In conclusion Magna wants to be an innovative idea rooted in the tradition of the place, aimed at revitalizing the areas

by calibrating the spaces according to the new demands that the inter-ethnic, multicultural society of the new millennium requires. The overcoming of pure forms, of the stereotyped repetition of worn-out architectures and now linked to the geometric and stylized vision of the world.
Magma wants to innovate and propose something different, new and fascinating. In addition to the functions and their locations, it was decided to overcome standards that are now linked to the past and to concepts that are now outdated.
therefore we tried to give greater emphasis to the potential of the place as natural resources and the partial and disorderly urbanization to give space to a new intervention in whic man and nature coexist. The idea of opening â€‹â€‹ up to the natural resource was the key element for the whole project and the essential point.
breaking the rules, going out of the box to generate new scenarios was the guideline for the whole generative path of the project.

QUBO ‘represents the idea of creating complex and articulated spaces in simple and rigorous volumes. The project area is located in the Ostiense quarter in the south-eastern outskirts of Rome, an area in which in recent years it has been leaving the indestrial character turning into one of the liveliest areas of the Italian capital.
The strategic position close to the historical center and the link with the EUR district made it possible to establish numerous tertiary activities in this area. The idea of the project is to work with pure and simple forms so as not to impact on an almost urbanized urban area. Inside, QUBO ‘, characterized by wide grooves on the facade, finds one of the
RENDER VIEW facade system
characteristic aspects of Italian architecture, namely the courtyard, an empty space around which space is organized, creating aggregation. Around the court, there are protruding volumes that emerge from the rigorous volume that surrounds it. The effect is to be immersed in a system that dematerializes, creating empty and full usable at any time of day.
The glass roofs and ample trimmings in the suspended volumes illuminate the space constantly, as well as the holes in the entire building arouse curiosity to those who walk along the Via Ostiense. The building has not been thought of as a closed box, but on the contrary as a passage that can always be used throughout the whole district. The interior space is fluid, never closed with floors that oscillate and overlap with large double
and triple heights are opposed to the rigorous volumes that come out of them. The service structure of the Roma Tre University is a prototype of the modern concept of strudio, fluid spaces and never closed that allow the constant exchange of ideas among the students.
The double skin composed of micro-perforated metal panels helps to ensure that the building has a double soul, in fact, if during the day it lights up and reflects sunlight, at night it stands as a lantern and a reference point for the entire area. The functions at the service of the quuartiere are placed on the ground floor as auditoriums, cafeterias, libraries and shops.

In the upper floors, structures more purely reserved for students have been set up, such as study rooms, theoretical classrooms and innovative laboratories. Structurally, the building has a huge reticular wall beam that covers the external auditorium which in turn designs the faĂ§ade towards the green area carved into the difference in height.
DETAIL DROWING Facade system
The context, the new spatial requirements and respect for tradition guided the design phases. The idea, as mentioned, is to intrigue through contrasts and let the user discover the many spatial nuances that Qubo â€˜offers. The spatial interweaving of classrooms and large spaces equipped for study wind around the main courtyard and four light cones with secret gardens that can be experienced by those who use the structure.

The fluid space and the contrast with enclosed spaces create the effect of contrast. Another important aspect was to occupy the entire lot available, incorporating the empty areas designed to green as a piece of clothing from the closed space. In fact we can speak of a system, in which space opened and closed, merge and it is difficult to recognize one from the other, through a subtraction of matter in an accurate and
different but at the same time complementary spaces. Qubo is an experience is the essence of past and present Roman architecture.

SECTION DROWING Triple hight
The rigor of simple shapes as opposed to light volumes that almost escape from the box, the compactness of the fronts carved out by wide and deep furrows that show the transparency of the glass means that it is not a trivial architecture but a living space.
The answer to the most modern needs and the combination of public and private spaces helps to give life to the structure for 24 hours, immersed in young and vital quartire that with its street art makes it unique.
finally it is right to underline how the contrast is accentuated through the green areas that design the main square, sinuous shapes that are organized at the edge of the windows that reach the ground.
The feeling of the never closed on the ground floor and the transparencies that leave glimpsing the activities to its internal contribute to give a unique aspect to the whole building.
