The project starting point considers the symbiotic dynamics of the lichens, based on two vital processes of most of the ecosystems: photosynthesis and fermentation. The structural and geometrical configuration has been generated to allow daily blooming, provoked by the CO2 production, oxygen absorption and sunlight management. According to the symbiotic principle two material fields are [...]
The Straits system can be compared to an “intermittent pump” which, during the different seasons, before enriched itself and then it provides nutrients to the surrounding 25 basins (source: F. Azzaro, F. Decembrini, F. Raffa, and E. Crisafi, Seasonal variability of phytoplankton fluorescence in relation to the Straits of Messina (Sicily) tidal upwelling, Papers published [...]
[Andrea Di Renzo, Jacopo Brunelli, Andrea Balloni, Umberto Tedeschini] Il progetto prende le mosse dallo studio dei sinuosi profili collinari, cosí forti ed importanti nella quinta della pista ciclabile, tanto lineare ed orizzontale. Idea che si é materializzata nel rapporto simbiotico fra attenzione bontanica e comfort antropico. L’esigenza di fruizione del territorio (degli utenti “vegetali” [...]
Rediscovering Siracusa’s sea front should mean something beyond a territorial expansion. The scars left by human and natural events help us read the history of the territory. This process can be intensified to organize people’s activities, natural elements and energetic points. The creation of a parametric tool helps in identifying hotspots that are later organized [...]
CONTEXT The overarching vision is to connect the separate and fragmented parts of the site into a coherent spatial composition with the potential to extend outside the site boundaries towards the Arsenal and River Thames beyond. As such the project becomes part of a wider regeneration strategy and pedestrian network of interlinked public open space. [...]
The project focuses on the development of a housing system based on an adaptive ecosystem approach, on principles of environmental sustainability and energetic self-sufficiency. The impact of inhabit the ecosystem is defined by a complex (evolutionary) organization.
