WTCA 2011 Asia-Pacific Regional Meeting at World Trade Center Mumbai: ITALIAN PHILOSOPHY IN DEVELOPING ARCHITECTURE “The Italian Way of building your new World Trade Center” by Arch. Cristiano Rossi
PHILOSOPHY SAME MENTAL JOURNEY AT THE DIFFERENT SCALES OF THE PROJECT: -Analysis of the context (environment, building, theme…) -Identification of the features (flows, density, relations…) -Interiorization of the suggestions (from the nature, from the art, from the objects…) -Synthesis process filtered through our personal sensitivity -Externalization of the project idea -Work planning: reply to contemporary questions and anticipate future needs
THE ITALIAN WAY Attention to the context. Respect for the â€œGenius Lociâ€? Genius Loci: In the Roman religion they are natural and supernatural entities linked to a place, now in architecture it means the whole of the socio-cultural, architectural and natural features and identifies the nature of a place, a city, an area
Sense of the proportion. The right size.
Sense of the whole, choral idea of city
Sustainability. Energy efficiency. Green architecture.
High tech with natural materials. Tech+craft.
