The opportunity to study and work in Barcelona was a system to know a central urban theme of the catalan city: the social housing. The objective of our research is valorize a residential economic system, introduce new different function and dispose the public spaces in continuity with the existent urban structure. Bon Pastor is a new popular low-rising neighborhood in Barcelona. It’s been founded in 1929 (consisting of 784 houses) beside the Besos river and in the middle of Verneda’s industrial zone. Nowadays some infrastructure projects are changing sorrounding urban texture. In 2003 the municipality planned to raise it down, but the inhabitants don’t want to leave their houses and they’re asking for partecipated project. The first step of the intervention organizes the open spaces between the houses, and connects the barrio with the river and with the new metro station. The old 1929 houses will be substituted with new modular units. This operation will permit the renewal of the neighborhood without any eviction. The project also adds lots of new housing types to the barrio (fro 35 to 120 mq) and places some basic services nearby the residences. From a monofunctionary residential ghetto, Bon Pastor will reach a real mix of function and uses, leading it from a separate dimension to be really central in Barcelona.

Projecting in a shopping center, for sure, doesnâ€™t represents a exciting place, however our proposal make an abstract from the context. Space division is simple and obliged by service position, the illumined center line, define a contact between service area and sitting area. A prismatic service bar is a central point of project and origen of bicolour contrast. Black and white. Extruded wall born from necessity to oppose random shape and regolarity, itâ€™s a dinamic and functional wall, a secondary lighting system.

Old and new facade
The design process start from all things around the project area. The starting point is landscape patrimony of Prosecco hills, the dialogue is develop into different layers, from composition side, marerial selection to strategic definition of points of view. The existing system is composed by a different function, with a new volumes, the risk is tryng to separate this part from a general composition. BUILDINGS A pratical roof creation, a reason for parking area but also a carismatic point of view into the landscape. LEADING LINE A conduction path to keep in touch all of different situation inside the project (parking area, preferential points of view, productive area). A conclusion of this line is a break into principal facade, like a junp in nature. TOPOGRAPHY The traditional Prosecco hills, with its large drop, oblige a relational search between project and landscape. COMPOSITIONAL CHOICES New facade founded into a reflection on compositive principles of existing buildings. A vertical succession of storic side change with aggregation of new regular volumes in an other reference plane.

The approach to the Venetian theme, suffer the subjection of the city, no longer seen as such, but as a temporary object on failure. The distance created with its inhabitants is generated by an increase of tourism. The city has now become an open-air museum, an hours city, only populated by hungry visitors and daily users, trapped in her immobility. A place unable to offer new chances or an efficient development. The Need for new space and services is limited to the creations of new functional appendices, completely unrelated to the city structure. At the same time, in the center, there is no clever rehabilitation of the existing spaces. In addition, no permanent solutions has been found to contrast the rise of the water level so the complete inflexibility of the city will ineluctably transform it into a dead ruin.
Based on these assumptions, our project, will propose a new idea of areas that have flexible features, open to changes. Venice is not born from a center, but consists of a series of separate islands, like a real micro-cities, which have been connected afterwards. We think that the answer to the future needs, is a process that goes back to the origins of the city, an island archipelago. We call it Venetian Pangea. Thanks to a new technology, we will be able to separate each island from the earth, and make it float by substituting the pales foundations with a floating system. In this way we will be able to resist the water level rise and also to increase the distances between the existing islands. This process will be followed by a parasitic insertion of new urban texture, that will answer all the functions and spaces need of a lively city.

The new islands will also produce energy and food, host the waste recycle systems, in this way they will help and compete, with their level of technology, the existing islands, to improve the future maintenance. The new units will be a functional complement of the old islands and guarantee an efficient level of mixite (of uses functions people) but also add new urban areas able to change the setting of the old Venice, without compromising itâ€™s own identity. This strategy will increase the attraction power of Venice, thanks to the new island system there will be the space and the opportunity for new grow of uses and services, that will lead to a new increase of the population, and a clever answer to natural problems. Future Venice will reach again the guide role it had in the past, instead of dying trying to preserve it.

Workshop with MVRDV Venezia, 2009
THIS IS A NEW
ECONOMIC WAY TO
The distance between cities becomes smaller and smaller every day by the improvement of our infrastructural network. We live in an age that most European cities are only 2 hours away from eachother with high speed train connections and airplanes. If we study the history of the airport, we notice that the airport expands in scale. At the moment the scale of the airport is so big that the airport is responsable of increasing the time between cities intstead of compressing the time. We spend more time in the airport then in the sky. The next observation can be made that small airports are disappearing and every region has only one big airport, so we wast a lot of time traveling to the airport. Italy still contains a lot of these small airports with former m litary background converted into little private airports. These airports have a huge potential for small and fl exible users. This workshop tries to investigate the potention of this fact and takes as a case study the Nicelli Airport on the island of Lido near Venice.
LAS LIDO The tourist industry became big business in the world. The world is growing, more and more economies..., so more and more people are capable to be a tourist. Soon Venice will be to small, but the tourists will still want to come. Where do we accomodate them, can Lido become the new Las Vegas strip for Venice? This scenario tries to investigate the potentional for a new way of tourisme, tourist that arrive with their small private airplane and make the airport their base.
