Making models

Mo r e a b o u t m e Apart from architecture studies, I’m very keen on sport, expecially that ones in the moutains, where I live, or diving into the sea: sport in nature in general. This make me feel the sensorial connection between my body and the sorruonding space. I find music very interesting and I play the flute and the percussions. I have been about 8 years in town band. I’ve always found it amusing do graphic works related to the activities that I do. For example, for the concerts of the town band I have made many posters. I also practice yoga and I’ve designed the member card for the yoga course I attend. I sometimes draw tattoos or logos for friends. Moreover, I used to be very passionate about photography. For the event ‘Piazza d’Arte, Ponte in Fiore 2013’ and the exhibition ‘Lieve e nero’ by Valerio Righini, my father, I’ve taken pictures for the catalog. 7

The aim of the project is to inhabit a structure designing a house of about 50 squared meters. The structures I choose to deal with are the trees of a larches and pines forest.

The particular landscape There is a lake at 2030 meters above the sea level, among the alps and in the middle of a forest. The site is in Val di Campo, a valley in GraubĂźnden, Switzerland. It is a calm place where you can feel a special connection with the surrounding. The attention has been placed in designing a house which fits in the forest, respecting nature and living whit the same atmosphere. The building faces the lake and expands among the trees using them as the vertical structure of the building. It is elevated at a certain high on the tree, just below the branches, to let the forest breath, animals and people to pass, plants to grow.

13


Respect I’ve used a special method, which works just by compression, to anchor to the trunks without damaging them and letting them keep growing. Two short beams on two opposite sides of the trunk, are fastened together with a long iron screw. On them, other two longer beams, in orthogonal direction, stabilize the system and become the horizontal structure of the house (in my mind is like a horizontal tree). So, there are two horizontal level: the floor of the house (consisting in an orthogonal grid of beams) and the roof (a radial one). They works togheter for the stability of the house and are generated by the position of the trunks, it‘s like the house is shaped by the forest.

A covered square, in relation to Jemaa el Fna, a new kind of public space articulated on different levels, moves people gradually down to the main dome. The roof, a shell structure, responds with its curves to the movements of the ground floor. This produces sensations of compression and expansion while descending, towards the fresh air. The descent is driven by a serie of stairs in clockwise direction, and a series of ramps in counterclockwise direction. A number of pools, refreshes the ambience, following the decrease in height of the ground with paths of water, untill the final big circulr tank under the biggest dome.

Some beams, that rest directly on the same pillars of the shell and positioned in the lowest zones of it, form the volumes for private houses. The beams intersecate one another and some portals permit the passage through them. In between the parellal wall of the beams, the different spaces of the houses are generated by the interaction of two lines of forniture,

thought as extrusion of the walls. The windows respect the same criteria: they are subtraction in the wall. The sensation of compression and expansion (on a vertical plane) is similar to the game between the ceiling and the ground, under the shell (on a horizontal plane). A public garden The cvurves of the domes in concrete create an artificial ground. Taking advantage of the slope of this floor, is possible to set about 1 meter of ground to let a garden grow in the lowest zones of the shell without beams. The vegetation, a mediterranean one, is concentrated in the areas where there are shadows for more hours per day. In sunny areas grow plants resistant to drought (myrtle, juniper, rosemary, lavander). Trees species are choosen for different colors and smells, for the production of various type of fruit and for different seasonality in order to have a garden active along all the year (jasmine, almond tree, lemon and orange tree, pomegranate tree, prune..). Rain water is collected in the pools at the ground floor. Further water is provided by the sinks of private houses, which have a direct tube integrated in to the windows’ shape. The terrace at the top have also a drainage connected to the garden in case of rain.

PROJECTS IN OLIVONE Atelier Mario Botta Professor Roberto Briccola Olivone, Swit zerland BACHELOR I Accademia di Architet tura Mendrisio, 2017


Olivone is a small village in Val di Blenio, Canton Ticino. Here there is an area occupied by a Centre for Youth and Sport, very close to an industrial area. The aim of the project is to retrain this area which nowadays is randomly organized and, at the same time, improve the life in this town which has not a real centre. It has been decided to recreate a new residential district where are some houses, mostly

abandoned, arranged casually without an architectural quality of spaces. Finally, the focus was on inhabit one of the parcel of the district we have designed with the tipology of patio house, which permit an high density without the loss of privacy. Every drawing is made by hand, considering it as an important method of learning and design.

IMAGINE YOUR LIGHTHOUSE Farol Capão da Marca Lagoa dos Patos, Brasil Digit al Represent ation I and II Course

The image is the conclusion of an intelligent creative process. The course inverted this process and engaged in a sort of ‘reverse design’ of the image. It all started from the photograph of a lighthouse, an existing architectural object, a usefull structure tipology designed and built by the mankind with enourmous knowledge but without the figures of architects. It had to be represented by a two-dimensional drawing and three-dimensional modeling. The focus of this process lay on the inquiry conducted to gain the information needed to formulate a precise and credible technical representation. But

the representation of the object was no limited to geometric reconstruction to scale: an abstracion exercise and an architectural hypothesis were also required. The section, though not based on reality, had to be credible and stem from search for similarities. Then, was made a drawn representation of the object in postcard form, in which the elevtion was decked out in lights, shadows, materials and colour fields. Finally, dealing with three-dimensional modeling, we moved to a higher level of interpretetion with atmosphere and suggestion through theories of photographic language.

140 ways to fold a paper The course tackled the basic themes of the project of space, through the study of the human body’s beauty, in the limits of its gestures, approaching dance as generator of architecture by defining the organisation, sequence, rhythm and aesthetics of movement. We gained experience of shoulder and arm joints. How can we make this visible through an object?

We built a ‘wearable’ objetc in paper which, moved by an apparently simple gesture, reveals, by opening and unfolding in space, the complexity and the beauty of the different folding techniques for 2 squared meters of paper. A coreography was displayedon the occasion of the Mise en scene n.11, accompanied by music especially written by the composer Nadir Vassena.

Ichthyosaurus skeleton On the occasion of Mise en scene n.12, all these elements were put together during a circular and apparently chaotic walk of the students in space, which led to the gradual construction of the coherent entirety of the skeleton. I had to realize a rid and a vertebra of the Ichthyosaurus.

During the second semester we dealt with the theme of ‘order’ as a primary quality, something intrinsic and needful in lfe as much as the project. We built an Ichthyosaurus skeleton, an ancient aquatic reptile of Ticino, 8 meters long, by assembling 120’000 cubes of linden wood to create, with acertain freedom in form, 280 different bones.
