Thesis project rehabilitation of ostiense ex industrial area Prof. Paolo Desideri _ with Antonia De Angelis
The flooded river, once one of the most important urban reference and the natural element on what the first Rome’s factory buildings looked out, today represents a limit for the city and an obstacle for the urban tissues. The Tiber’s flooding represents the possibility for the river to regain a fundamental role in the city. The river becomes the structuring element of the context, the new general plan’s landmark which aims to the redevelopment of the old districts of Ostiense. Starting from the analysis of the Tiber system and from the revaluation of its role, we defined some project’s scopes with a strong identity. The project becomes the meeting point of the most important element of the context, solving the failed graft between the districts and restoring an urban unity and connection.

Projects studentâ€™s library Prof. Michele Furnari
The project covers the void of one of the former Rome Abattoir pavilions, in the Testaccio Area. The building has two main parts differing by function. Beyond the study and the reading areas the library also houses a Newspapers Reading Room, a mediatheque and a conference room. They hang over the exterior space. Big glass windows glazed by ribbed steel sheets shelter the whole block. The Services block is conceived as a compact volume whose compactness is interrupted by punctual openings towards preferential external views allowing a uniform light penetration. This services bricks-block also houses a long staircase that goes through the whole building and is marked by the bridges connecting the different levels.

Projects commercial and civic building in plaza santa ana Barcellona _ Aprile 2009 Themes of the project are the redevelopment and the restoration of old buildings in Plaza Santa Ana in Barcelona through an Art Gallery and a trade area. A site where modern offices are close to the ancient Church of Saint Ann without any continuity. The church has remained unchanged all over the years, is part of the city but it not integrated thereto. This is the reason why not only the church but also the urban context was considered as a founding project element. The height of buildings, the poor permeability and the absence of intended use make this area an isolated and hidden â€œurban backyardâ€? in the city. An accumulation of history.

Progetti riabilitazione del complesso fabra i coats Barcellona _ Ottobre 2008
The re-birth of the activities at the Fabra y Coats industrial buildings has initiated a complex urban and architectural work. The area is improved to be used as a multifunctional centre for artists, with housings, temporary and permanent art galleries, a civic centre, community recreational areas and shops. Each building is emptied and used differently according to its peculiarities. The project is the main theme and it is present in different places by linking them both on the formal way as well as on the physical one through bridges, bridges and blocks treated with the same skin. The new project is highlighted by big volumes that penetrate the buildings; they are hidden inside and create different relations which vary according to the empty space between them. In this way the project is a sign of antithesis rather than of harmony between the new and the old project/work.

Collaborations. MAB ARQUITECTURA â€œabitare a milanoâ€? via gallarate Milano, Italy, 2005-2009 _ International Competition _ First Prize
The project is designed/shaped by the public space. The gardens of the pedestrian park close the motorway on the north-side. Playgrounds and service areas are located in the southern part, toward the city. Four residence buildings and squares are integrated with the green inside the park making the ground floor transparent and porched favouring the perception of continuity with the shops. There are four different types of residences. They are built in the blocks in order to have the living area with balconies and galleries westward oriented and the bedrooms eastward.

Competitions ro m e c i t y v is i o n Rome, Italy, May 2010 _ Third Prize roma : a love story In a bar, two old friends (the Foreigner and the Local) meet up, and they start an interesting conversation… The Foreigner: Rome, the eternal city… The Local: Rome the eternal city ? The city as you imagine it, my friend, does not exist anymore The Foreigner: Rome disappeared? Impossible…Rome is the eternal city, eternally mirror of itself, prisoner and loyal slave serving its history. The city is delighted by its state of prisoner, she indulges it. And the people around the world love her prisoner soul. The Local: Ah ,ah … now Rome has changed…she’s free and has a new rebel soul The Foreigner: And who did release it? Her jailer, the History, has always been too strong to get rid of ! The Local: Her old lover, denied and neglected. It has been a story of love and hate…at the beginning they were bind, depending each other; the water was sustaining the city. But then, She locked her hearth and throw out the key into the river… The Foreigner: The Tiber? The Tiber war her lover? The Local: Yes but she left him. The Foreigner: And now…where is it? The Local: He has always been with her, He never left her. The Foreigner: And…where was he hidden? The Local: This is amazing! He wasn’t hidden anywhere, but nobody cared about him. The Foreigner: And what happened? The Local: After years of silence, the Tiber, fed up of being ignored, decided to get back his reign and his queen! The Foreigner: And then they went away? The Local: No! After freeing her, they took their revenge. They eliminated the tyranny of Archeology and History and took over the old city. And then they made love : the water and the city, like old times…
Decayed and forgotten, the Tiber stood watching the slow decadence of his reign, converted to the belief of History and Archeology. The new Gods promised to the city a future of greatness, model for the rest of the world and an eternal life. But soon the promise turned out to be fake; every change was submitted to the Judgment of History and every freedom of expression was denied. The city became slave of its past, without any hope for the future. The Tiber couldnâ€™t bear the sight of his beloved prisoner. He prepared his revenge and did it: the water flooded into the city, took over the Archeology and confused the History! A revolution upset Rome, and for the citizens it became an opportunity and a hope of change. Only then, they realized the injury suffered and the features of their former tormentors, old heap of bones, the living dead (perhaps mindful of powerful bodies now decomposed). And from the ruins of ruins they decided to rebuild the city. A new Rome born again on the carcasses of its tyrants, and show off to the world proud and free from chains. No areas of the old city was saved; the water overwhelmed everything, careless of the old ruins. The History, now submerged, wasnâ€™t anymore a constraint to the development and modernization of the city. In the new Rome the old and modern cohabit in harmony with what already exist, and the water become source of life and energy A new way of life imposes on citizens; they take back the river, the only natural element survived to the old empire, who is becoming the new foundation of the city. The river enters into the city, breaks the banks and governs citizen life. The water is used for everything: for transportation, as a source of energy, as a tool for entertainment. The words traffic jam, confusion, stress and pollution will never be pronounced again; the Time is now beaten by the Nature, not anymore by the History. The Tiber gave freedom to Rome and finally their love story can start again. Rome is an endless story of love and hate.
Competitions every v i lle Venezia, Italy _ competitions of ideas for the Biennale di Venezia 2008
everyville > start! Everyville isn’t a city like others, Everyville is a game. Everyville isn’t made out of neighborhoods, it’s made out of micro-communities; each micro-community participates in a different way at the creation of the public space, using it’s own waste as prime-material for it’s creation. Each citizen is encouraged to change the community he belongs to depending on his desires and on the type of contribution that he is willing to make towards the public space. game principals: change and exchange. game goal: Build a new sense of the collective, based on one's contribution to a common project that has his roots in a new consciousness of the surrounding space. Encourage the exchange through continuous change of inhabitants from one community to another. The purpose is to educate citizens in order to be able to face continuous change (a basic condition of the contemporary world). game > players : 20000-50000 The city is divided into 5 micro-communities submerged into the public space. Each inhabitant is encouraged to choose the community he wants to live in. Each community participates at the creation of the public space through a specific recycling process of its waste. CommunityX (river) organizes the process of fitodepuration of used water that is utilized for creating public pools. CommunityY (dens) organizes the gathering of inorganic waste convertible into materials that can be used for building urban furniture. CommunityZ (fields) organizes the gathering process of organic waste usable as fertilizer for the urban fields. CommunityW (wood) has to produce energy using biomass as prime material. CommunityK (ephemeral) receives tourists in easy-to-build micro structures. .The winner is considered the player who counts the greatest number of changes. let’s play!
Workshop ciso l so l a r wor kshop Barcelona, Spain _ 2009 _ sustainability international workshop
The workshop theme is the construction of a student-housing complex based on different sustainability rules and solely powered by solar Energy. The proposal considers different aspects to reduce the environmental impact through the attempt to merge natural and artificial strategies. The first step was the analysis of all principles playing in the definition of a low environmental impact project: COHOUSING _ the principle of cohousing not only enables high energy-savings but also the
reduction in the occupation of soil. Each building was conceived to have high quality and quantity of natural lighting ensuring inhabitants the highest comfort. STUDIES ON THE SURRONDING ENVIROMENT _ the collocation of the residential
volumes was decided only after an accurate climate study over the area.
INDUSTRIALISATION OF THE PROCESS _ precast elements are used to reduce the time of
construction not altering high quality standards. Natural materials, passive heating and cooling principles were implemented.

Writings and sketches m alik a Pubblication on City Vision Mag _ May 2011 Malika is walking along the city center, her blush is sad, her eyes filled with tears. She looks around but can’t recognize what the city of her dreams used to be. Next to her buildings are now crumbling, cats running away from abandoned houses, streets full of mud.The city is now unrecognizable, had too long been in the hands of Lords, who have made their nest. Malika is a whore, her merchandise in plain sight. She came from the suburbs. But there, they did not understand her, the suburbs were too tight. She had big plans, willing to manifest her feelings, vomiting everything she kept inside. The Old City was like the Eldorado, the place where everything was possible, where everyone’s dreams may turn into reality, the city sparkling far away: monuments and houses lights, the sparkle of Tevere River and of fountains, shiny cars’ reflection in via Veneto, the glittering lipstick on girls’ lips waiting for the night. The City was calling her and opened its doors. Malika moved into the City. But immediately doors were closed strong behind her, lights went out, illusions vanished. The city revealed as it really was: a pile of slurry, a storage of moldy stones, empty skeletons of buildings. The sky was dark, dark that frightened; sickly the smell, stifling the air. Those lights that she admired from far away, soon turned out the last glow of a declining city. But only when down into the city center, she knew that reality was a frightening nightmare: squares were crowded with people, a shapeless heap of bodies dragged through the streets. They were naked and in chains, their heads down, their eyes widely shut. Boys and girls were selling their freedom and ideas every day, in exchange
of some crumbs. Eager for knowledge, the Lords moved among them and, with foaming mouths, sucked their energies, fed to their genius. It was a ghosts’ city, forced to sell off their souls to survive. Only then Malika realized she had been betrayed, and many others before her. Malika walks, wild beauty, the Lords’ greedy eyes on her. Nothing seems to bother her, wrapped on her memories, locked in her secret and waiting… Waiting for the revolution, the day of Vengeance. Malika had lost any hope and continued to look for those lights. She knew the day would come and won’t be alone. Malika keeps on walking and dreaming… “On that day the fresh and cleansing wind of revolution will sweep away the dust, the ancient regimes, the old habits and will free rooms for new ideas, new projects and our dreams!” she is thinking, already seeing the city burning and the Lords begging for mercy; she foresees melting their body fat, ashes the old laws, broken the chains. Suddenly, a heavy voice shakes and breaks that vision… “So…Let’s go!” Malika recovers, she was dreaming, again… “At your service, my Lord!” She lowers her head and follows the voice, like every day she’s still a whore.
Writings and sketches t he c rus h ed c i t y with Prof. G. Caudo, Prof. F. Careri _ May 2007 The study of the city and its borders points out the main problem of current Rome outskirts; Tor Sapienza embodies the failure of all those projects conceived to let one single architectural movement prevail without any proper interpretation of the projectâ€™s contest and to cope with a drastic lack of housing. The social and environmental problems caused by this roman outskirt spot are still unsolved. After a study on the social and cultural phenomena proper of the area, the proposal is a project that brakes the residential block of Tor Sapienza and distributes housing and services over a wider area so to get residents closer to their daily life granting a more â€œnaturalâ€? approach toward the city. The broken city is not only a formal motto but it expresses the intention to break the boundaries to which the suburbs have been confined for a too long time. The aim is an open and dissolving city where the outskirts penetrate the urban centre.
Writings and sketches escap e fro m t he cit y an architectural comic Barcelona, Plaza Catalunya 2008. A chaotic moving city, where obsession, violence and prostitution rule undisturbed; life is frenetic and people are without identity. In this desperate scenario a feeling coming from the past wakes up among human beings, coming from the melancholy of that old and imperfect world which was fought to free the room for the future. The new city denied the feelings: new buildings were constructed over a completely smoky valley, humans were machines serving the urban growth. But men kept a safe place where to recover and found the lost identity away from the contemporary disaster. A shelter in the hearth of the city, between past and future: Plaza Santa Ana. In this place space and time dilate and past and present simultaneously live together. The Square is in this way a safe protection which gives hope and allow the humans to flee, even for few moments, from the urban chaos.
