RIYADH METRO WESTERN STATION
OMRANIA’S ICONIC WESTERN STATION DEMONSTRATES A DESIGN REFLECTIVE OF LOCAL CULTURE AND HERITAGE WITH A LANDMARK QUALITY. Western Station is one of four iconic stations of the new Riyadh Metro. The design aims to be a catalyst for urban renewal, reflecting local culture and heritage with a landmark quality. The new urban ‘crossroads’ will host an above-ground metro station, bus station, underground park & ride facility and a large public plaza. This ‘Western Place’ unfolds into a complex hierarchical landscape that alternates a series of open spaces with more intimate ones, through the skilled combination of natural and artificial elements. The plaza, envisaged as a new and major urban space external to the downtown area, is a revitalizing force that will reconnect existing neighbourhoods, provide for transportation and services and boost economic development for the surrounding area and for the city at large.

DESIGN PROPOSAL FOR A METRO STATION THAT IS PART OF ONE OF THE LARGEST SUBWAY DEVELOPMENTS IN OSLO’S RECENT HISTORY. The Fornebubanen is the largest subway development in recent time in Oslo and will be about 8.2 km long, extending from Fornebu Centre to Majorstuen. The proposed Oslo Metro Station creates a striking new point of arrival into the heart of the emerging mixed-use community southwest of
central Oslo. The design sought to increase light and view down to the platforms of the underground station, improving orientation and visual connectivity with the public space above. This connectivity was afforded by a simplification of the proposed over-station masterplan, eliminating the need for complex and costly station overbuild.

CITYLIFE RETAIL & PLAZA
AN URBAN REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT IN THE CENTRE OF MILAN WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF A NEW PLAZA ACTING AS A JUNCTION BETWEEN THE METRO, PARK AND ICONIC TOWERS. The double story plaza reveals itself at the two principle levels of the public domain, one being the towers’ ground floors and the other in correspondence to the hypogea level, acting as a junction between the park and the pedestrian axis Domodossola. The revision of the plaza’s layout stems from variations in its functional program, or rather of its spatial distribution, and the desire to create a single public place made up of two open spaces at different levels. Retail functions, strongly characterized in part by the fashion mall at the base of the Hadid tower, and the outdoor commercial activity distributed around the plaza and along the pathway towards Piazza VI Febbraio, permit the public square to open itself up to the city and the surrounding park.

PROPOSED DESIGN OF NEW PORT STATION TO REDEFINE SEVERAL URBAN FUNCTIONS AND TRANSFORM THE PUBLIC SPACES AND HARBOUR INTO A VIBRANT OUTDOOR SYSTEM. The Maritime Station is an important opportunity to redefine several urban functions and transform the public spaces and harbour into a vibrant outdoor system. The new station will be the main driver of positive socioeconomic effects on the territory’s overall development. The volume and flow of passengers determine the design concept. The overall composition identifies the site as a Sea Gateway, a giant atrium for those arriving and leaving Rome. The Maritime Station is a place for passengers to experience diverse peculiarities and historical memories of Rome.
GELA NEW MARINA THE DESIGN OF A NEW MARINA THAT REPRESENTS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT FOR THE REGENERATION OF THE ENTIRE WATERFRONT AREA.
For the accompanying study, it was important to: provide benchmarking examples to identify keys to the developments success; identify design alternatives in relation to the different scale operations, berth numbers, the delineation of the roads; provide operational costs through parametric preliminary estimates.
Location: Gela, Italy Client: Icaro Ecology Services: Feasibility studies, land use planning, architectural design and masterplanning.
The marina proposal foresees the construction of 400 berths and public yachting service facilities for both visitors and the local community. The masterplan design addresses two important factors for the area. Firstly, in which way the new marina plays a role within the wider network of other port functions, including fishing and passengers flows. Secondly, identifying which new operations are compatible with the functional program and at the same time capable of activating forms of economic investment returns.
THE MASTERPLAN FOR A NEW CONTAINER PORT PROPOSED BY THE MUNICIPALITY OF MAZARA REPRESENTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET THE DEMAND FOR GROWTH IN FREIGHT TRAFFIC. 28 The countries that lie along this water basin have a privileged and strategic position, many of which are taking advantage of by utilising their unique location. The Mazara port plays an intermediate hub role and is connected to the major logistic ports in the Mediterranean Sea through feeder ships. Its terminal, overlooking the sea, consist of a platform placed out over the existing
berths with highly specialized trans-shipment container handling operations and redistribution towards the inner distripark of the port area. The Mazara Port is considered strategic for its location on freight traffic routes that avoids severe deviations, the availability of large back port areas, and the possibility to be integrated within the European rail and motorway corridors.
