NAUTA FIRST PRIZE COMPETITION WINNER IN SHENZHEN – CHINA

We are happy to announce that NAUTA is the winner of the Q city International Urban Design competition for the requalification of the Yantian district in Shenzhen.
NAUTA’s project promotes the redevelopment of the Dameisha Urban Village by adding a ‘diffused hotel’. By analyzing the local statistics about tourism trends and types, we propose to add the social layer of the informal tourist (backpackers, culture lovers, students), willing to mingle with local habits. This type is perfectly applicable to the local rental schemes, in which single owners or cooperatives manage the low budget rental units fort the unregistered floating population.
Tourists will be integrated into this system, while experiencing the real cultural background of Shenzhen. This strategy wills to contribute to the preservation of the Urban Villages from progressive demolition, by strengthening local economy and promoting the spontaneous improvement of public space and its sanitary conditions. Upon proven success of the model with the pilot project, it can be further exported to the 200 urban villages that are disseminated in the metropolitan area of Shenzhen.

NAUTA IS PART OF CHINESE DOCUMENTARY ON SHENZHEN

In 2016 NAUTA will be part of a documentary produced by Phoenix TV, focused on the city of Shenzhen. The documentary will illustrate the evolution of the metropolitan area in the last decades, on how the local economy is progressively shifting from manufacture to service. By interviewing Maurizio, the documentary director wills to open a discussion on the role or urban agriculture. In fact, until recent time, the local government neglected this sector as associated to a poor past of economic stagnation. The interview questions the power of contemporary agriculture technologies and strategic planning of generating new forms of investment and sustainable employment that could become base for a new industry and leadership of the metropolis, both in the Pearl River delta region as well as the whole country.

MAURIZIO SCARCIGLIA RUNS ‘FUR’ STUDIO ON SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY

Maurizio Scarciglia is invited to run the FUR (Future urban Regions) studio 2016 at the Fontys Academy of Architecture and Urbanism in Tilburg, NL.

The studio will focus on investigating the urban fabric of Eindhoven, its functioning and the bases to envisage realistic scenarios of densification, compared to the consequences that each will bring to the current urban development. Students will be free to question different ways of implementation by testing solutions for the completion of existing unexploited urban clusters, as well as the development of new areas or the densification of clusters that are already developed and fully consolidated. The focus will be kept on how the city will accommodate the new inhabitants, while reducing the environmental impact of its new population, looking specifically at mobility.
