The island separates the center of the urban life from the area in the north, where the metallurgic factory and the Tamburi district are considered the most problematic for pollution and poor social conditions. For this reason the center has the potential to inject new life on a systemic level in the city. The project is articulated with material and immaterial interventions, with the goal of bringing the island back to a functional and effective performance.

The Basic infrastructural strategy has the goal of making the general infrastructure efficient and modern. His intervention should help the island to get rid of the traffic, coming from its role of connection/crossing. The general decongestion would help as well to re-educate the inhabitants to use new maximized public transport, new alternative transportation (via water) and pedestrian bike circulation. The diffused re-qualifying strategy is partially developed simultaneously to the first one. It includes the punctual restoration of the existing building heritage, the restoration of those structures with artistic and historical value, till the demolition and reconstruction of new parts. This strategy includes as well the improvement of the public spaces and circulation enclaves. The Performing infrastructural strategy focuses mostly on the waterfront and the interventions within the inner fabric (squares, terraces), which will duplicate the pedestrian and circulation apparatus of the island and will unable it to absorb a new cultural program for the long term. The new waterfront infrastructure is light and with a low environmental impact. This strategy wills to limit the physical intervention, leaving space to a rich future curatorial program of events and socio-economic scenarios. The socio-economic strategy is the most immaterial, yet the most important for the long term. Parallel to the precedent interventions, it defines the base for the future evolution of the island and its capability to welcome the new generations. A unique cultural program, developed by a pool of experts, will boost the image of Taranto among the list of the places to visit, contributing to combine micro and macro economy actions. These actions might help, on the long term, to transform the actual industrial paradigm of the city into a new service oriented one.

 

Il centro storico è il filtro tra la Taranto vissuta ed amata dai tarantini (quella del borgo ottocentesco) e quella più discussa dell’Ilva, del quartiere Tamburi, considerato da anni luogo di degrado ambientale e sociale. Il centro storico, come cuore fisico della città, deve tornare ad assumere il proprio ruolo di centro città. Le ragioni di questa perdita di leadership risiedono prevalentemente nel profondo handicap infrastrutturale del centro storico che ha reso l’isola incapace di evolversi con la città, con la sua economia e società. Come un corpo amputato, il centro storico necessita la sua protesi per tornare a correre al lato del resto della città ed a svolgerne il ruolo di cuore culturale ed economico. Per questo il progetto si materializza come processo dinamico, composto da strategie materiali e immateriali, che riportino a lungo termine il centro storico ad una performance adatta alla città contemporanea.

La strategia infrastrutturale di base ha l’obiettivo di rendere il centro storico capace di funzionare in maniera sufficientemente efficiente nell’immediato. Si porta l’isola ad eliminare il traffico dovuto all’infrastruttura insufficiente. Attraverso la fluidificazione dei flussi più aggressivi, si da il via a una nuova fase educativa degli abitanti locali, attraverso l’inserimento di potenziati mezzi pubblici, possibili vie di comunicazione alternative (per esempio via acqua), e la sensibilizzazione all’uso di mobilità pedonale e ciclabile. La strategia risanante diffusa inizia contemporaneamente alla prima fase. Essa comprende il puntuale risanamento della massa edilizia presente nel centro storico, secondo un suo attento cronoprogramma proporzionato allo stato conservativo dei manufatti. Dall’eliminazione di quelli pericolanti, alla ristrutturazione e restauro di quelli di pregio fino alle future nuova edificazione di aree liberate da inutile superfetazioni o edifici non recuperabili. Si includono inoltre gli interventi immediati di ripristino di spazi pubblici e viabilità interclusa che al momento inibiscono ogni possibilità di vivere la città in maniera funzionale. La strategia infrastrutturale performante s’incentra principalmente sul waterfront e sui macro interventi interni al centro storico (per esempio nelle piazze e sulle terrazze) che porteranno l’isola ad usufruire di una nuova infrastruttura efficiente, dal ridotto impatto ambientale, capace di permettere all’isola di accogliere un nuovo programma curatoriale a lungo termine. L’idea di un elemento lineare flessibile permette di pensare ad un’infrastruttura leggera, dal limitato impatto ambientale, dal ridotto budget di costruzione, facile realizzazione in fasi e dalla capacità di supporto al programma futuro. L’obiettivo è di ridurre al minimo l’intervento fisico per lasciare spazio al futuro sviluppo programmatico del programma culturale e socio-economico dell’isola. La strategia socio economica è la più immateriale ma più importante a lungo termine. Spalmata a cavallo delle precedenti fasi e nel futuro, essa getta le basi per un rinnovato funzionamento del centro storico, capace di ospitare le nuove generazioni di tarantini (e non), con nuove idee imprenditoriali. La ri-funzionalizzazione dell’isola permette, attraverso le attività aggiunte, di attrarre nuovi ed eterogenei gruppi sociali, capaci di aggiungersi all’importante strato esistente degli abitanti storici dell’isola. Un ricco programma curatoriale, sviluppato da un gruppo multidisciplinare di consulenti per la municipalità contribuirà a posizionare Taranto sulla lista dei posti in cui la nuova micro economia genera un nuovo paradigma urbano.

SHENZHEN – XIXIANG URBAN RENEWAL

International competition

Program: Masterplan for the requalification and modernization of the Xixiang district

Total floor area: 8.4 kmq

Budget: N/A

Client: Bao’an local Government

Location: Shenzhen, Xixiang district, China

Design: 2016

The approach to the urban intervention was to bring out the specificities of the place and to design a masterplan starting from them. Especially the preservation of the meaningful historical parts and of the urban village structure doesn’t look back to the past, but try to give new lymph for the economical sustainability of these urban texture which are disappearing and seem cannot find their meaning inside the Chinese metropolis economy.

An important step is the redevelopment of the waterfront and the connection with the villages of Gushu that now is denied by the presence of the infrastructure. This link give new possibilities to the villages and, in this way, supports their urban and social requalification. Also the green network wants to accentuate the presence of the green elements that already exists, considering that they are very rare in Chinese cities.

The urban mosaic is clarified where it is possible and transformed where it isn’t. This transformation is led from the needs that in Xixiang are still missing.

The union of all this different parts and urban textures is made through the study of a network of public spaces which improve the quality of life and joins all the area in a unitary vision for Xixiang.

SIRACUSA – LIGHTHOUSE SEA HOTEL

Competition proposal.
Program: Boutique Hotel, spa- wellness center, concierge, restaurant, conference room, event space.
Total floor area: 3000 sqm.
Budget: n/a.
Client: YAC.
Location: Siracusa, Italy.
Design: 2016

 

The competition asks to reflect on sustainable solutions to reintegrate the ‘Murro di Porco’ lighthouse and the surrounding existing structures with a new tourism complex, capable to offer to the Siracusa territory a new facility, suitable for its visitors’ trends.This lighthouse, as most of the others, lies in a territorial context of such high environmental value that it is not allowed to transform existing structures and landscape, reducing any possible intervention to make them functional. The new structure is shaped as a frame around the existing ruins. The intention is to limit the construction site to a ring that surrounds the lighthouse, defining a central portion of the landscape, new heart of the tourist complex. The landscape is left untouched, as natural and wild as it is. Structure and material techniques are very much connected to the local masonry tradition. The whole structure, a single floor high, is based on the most traditional local techniques; coated with plaster, the new building echoes the color palettes of local villages, with light nuances of natural colors. This reflections are the bases of our proposal. We focus on the preservation of the local experience of the site and its nature.The new hotel reduces to a minimum all logistic aspects, improving its overall sustainability and energy performance. This happens thanks to the unified roof that, free from public access, can seamlessly host photo-voltaic and solar heating, as well as rainwater storage system for grey water usage. Internal natural ventilation is provided through the building typology itself that offers cross ventilation to each internal function, both private and public.

ROTTERDAM-MULLERPIER

Status: Feasibility study

Program: Study for four row single family housing types

Total floor area: average 350 sqm

Budget: confidential

Client: confidential

Location: Rotterdam

Design: 2014

 

TYPE 1

The idea of the house with the central linear service box begins with the aim of creating a clear separation between the circulation and the living space. This partition is readable on the frontside and the backside, in fact the facade is closed in correspondence to the service box and widely opened in front of the living spaces. Important points of the project are the light and the ventilation system which are improved by the side void that goes through the building.The access to the complex from the street is soften by the garden in front of the house that can be enjoyed in the summertime.The entrance to the house is on the first floor, leaving the ground floor totally independent and assuming a multifunctional aspect that could fit to the needs of each family.This solution is characterized by a central space in which the vertical circulation is next to the linear block for bathrooms, toilets, closets and relax space. Around this central box the house shows a large variety of space as kitchen, dining room, living room, playroom, storage and the top floors for the bedrooms. Thanks to the central box the rooms can benefit from a total indipendence and privacy. On the last floor the masterbedroom offers a spacious and bright environment due to the cointinuity and trasparency of the material. From here it is possible to acces to the external stairs that lead to the roof terrace.

TYPE 2

The house with the front service box is the most extreme experimentation between the four houses because of the unusual disposition of the spaces, but at the same time presents some advantages. In this case the service box is on the frontside of the house which has permitted to develop a glass-front facade without compromising   the privacy inside the building. From the exterior can be perceived only the internal circulation, which is also separated from the living space and allows to every floor to be totally independent. A strong point of this solution is the backward facade creating four terraces, two accesible from the backside and two from the frontside and one on the top floor leads to the roof terrace. The interior disposition is clear with an independent ground floor and the entrance on the first floor gives, in order, access to the dining room, kitchen, living room, bedrooms and master bedroom. The master bedroom has a special private space dedicated to a Spa with a turkish bath that characterized the particular shape of the roof terrace. The dome of the roof is reminded also in the garden in front of the house and with these downs creates a variety of the entrances of the complex. This typology presents wide windows on both facades ensuring lighted and ventilated spaces. In addition the solution reveals strong flexibility, in fact the disposition could be totally inverted with the box on the back according to the request.

TYPE 3

The typology of the central service box is a unique exemplar for the internal disposition. In this project the simple external facade is in opposition to the particular interior due to the central service box that creates a very compact vertical connection and splits the usual five floors in ten floors. The concentration of the service box permits to obtain well-illuminated big spaces by the wide windows on the facades with great views on both sides. In this way each floor has his own privacy and allows to create different disposition of the spaces. This model presents the entrance on the first floor and then the spaces are articulated in kitchen, dining room, office, living room, bedrooms, master bedroom, Spa and terrace.  On the groundfloor there is a closed multifunctional space. In this option the most important value is the flexibility, in fact not only it is possible to change the function of the single space, but also to move the functions in other floors or to separate the floors creating a totally independent part.

TYPE 4

The typology of the side linear service box separates the circulation space from the living space, this is an option that for many reasons stands out from the others. The house presents a double-facade system on both sides that creates optimal conditions of illumination and ventilation. There is a system of voids with different scale that can improve the light and the ventilation in the interior and they create a visual connection of the spaces giving the sensation of being in a unique open space.  The voids also allow to see through the spaces that are facing them on different floors; they are designed as small internal gardens, one horizontal facing the master bedroom and the other, the smaller one is vertical. With the systems of double-facade and voids all the spaces are overlooking the exterior and ventilated-green space. The model is designed with an independent space on the ground floor with a separate entrance to the house and then on the upper floors where there are the kitchen, living room, office, two bedrooms and masterbedroom with spa. In this option there is the possibility to change or move functions in the same floor, but it’s less flessible regarding to have more functions as office or elevate number of bedrooms or independent parts because of the lack of a floor. This lack is due to the desire of creating a very special open space on the last floor with a semi-covered terrace that can be used the entire year providing a space to relax and enjoy the view of the waterfront on the frontside and the city centre on the backside.

PALMA – THERMAL BATH

International architecture competition
Palma, Thermal bath complex
Total floor area: 5000 sqm
Budget: 5900000 €
Location: La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain
Design: 2015

The project is planned in a particularly delicate landscape, south of La Palma island, in the Canary Islands archipelago.
The site, adjacent a stunning beach, imposes to think about a seamless and discrete intervention that does not compromise the view from the coast way.
The proposal envisages a volume that follows the natural contour lines of the volcanic landscape. This volume presents a continuous façade with a generous view to the sea, while its face towards the landscape operates an accurate carving of the ground in order to hide inside the land the most intimate functions. The functional layout is simple and linear. Wet and dry areas are accurately separated to facilitate maintenance and logistics, while optimizing costs and construction.
The project offers a sense of luxury and comfort in its interiors, while preserving a minimal impact on the delicate landscape.

ROMA – FLAMINIO

ROMA – FLAMINIO

Competition project
Program: Urban Design competition for the New Science City of Rome
Total floor area:  sqm.
Location: Roma, Italy.
Design: 2015.

Team: Maxwan Architects and Planners, Nauta architecture & research

Aim of the project is to transform the current introvert configuration of the area using its potential as new urban connector and capable to participate in the structure of the Flaminio district. Focus of the intervention is the addition of new public spaces and a vibrant new residential fabric.
Pivot aspect of project is the sustainability. The urban voids are in fact structured to facilitate the optimum passage of the winds and to favor the natural cooling of the neighborhood, using as well permeable soil both in public spaces and on the cover of the new buildings. This action promotes the absorption and reuse of rainwater.
Green roofs offer a natural insulation for buildings. Our proposal will incorporate the use of modern renewable energy. The new housing units will be optimized in orientation, favoring double or triple facing for maximum natural ventilation.
Not least, we consider the mix of typologies essential to ensure a commercial success for the masterplan, which can withstand the fluctuations of the market or the changes of social groups. The result offers a dynamic tissue of several residential buildings, commerce and hospitality, integrated with the new Science Centre. A system of squares and green spaces reconfigures the district as a new vibrant heart of Flaminio district, following the rich tradition of Italian urbanism in which squares and public spaces articulate a rich and dynamic urban structure.

International ideas competition.
PARTICIPATING PROJECT
Urban planning and landscape design for the re-use of the former airport runway tip site.
Program: Housing, Luxury housing, exhibition spaces, offices, cinema, restaurants, hotel, market, parking.
Total floor area: 90 ha.
Location: Hong Kong.
Year: 2014.

NAUTA’s master plan for the reuse of the former Kai Tak airport in Hong Kong.
Based on the existing situation and on the municipality’s plan to connect through a bridge the Kai Tak peninsula with the Kwun Tong waterfront, NAUTA’s strategy proposes to densify the bridge with the whole program required.
Having to build a bridge will anyway condition the logistics of the area. It will imply having a construction site in the middle of the water body. So why not freeing the panned site and give it back to nature?
Hong Kong, the densest World city, lacks of public space and green, packed as it is with very dense and tall buildings concentrated in such a tiny little land.

The Kai Tak masterplan is a unique opportunity to give back to HK a piece of nature. We propose to design the site destined to the required program as a tropical urban forest, while concentrating all functions in the clear and efficient bridge. All logistics are supplied by the lower levels, freeing the upper floors for simple and efficient towers. The middle platform hosts the EFL electric metro connection that will offer a sustainable connection to the line of towers. It will host as well a linear market, food court and a spectacular roof park with stunning views of the Victoria Harbor.
All roofs will provide rain water collection for internal use.
It is proved that moving functions up from the street level contributes to reduce the exposition to CO2 and SO2 produced by car traffic. Hong Kong suffers massive pollution problems. Placing the new program in the water body and lifting it up will contribute to massively enhance the health quality of the people inhabiting the structure.

The internal water body will become a flexible appendix of the forest program. Sheltered by the bridge structure it will offer a good protection for the boats during the Typhoon period, while becoming an enclosed set for events on the water, such as water sports, ‘boat-in cinema’, pop concerts.

国际概念设计比赛。

入围         项目

城市规划与景观设计 —-旧机场跑道末端部位再利用

项目:住宅,豪华住宅,展示空间,办公室,电影院,餐馆,酒店,商场,停车场。

总建筑面积:90公顷

地点:香港。

时间:2014年。

 

NAUTA的总体规划为重新启用翻新香港旧启德机场。

基于目前的情况,并在市政厅计划通过桥桥梁将启德半岛和观塘海滨相连接,NAUTA的计划将整个项目区域与桥梁一起加密化。

建造桥梁将调节当地的物流。这将意味着将一个建筑设置在水体中央。那么,为什么不将其释放,并将它回归自然呢?

香港,是世界上人口最密集的城市职业,缺乏公共空间和绿化空间的,因为高密度的建筑,所有的高层建筑主要集中在这样一个小小的土地。

在启德机场总体规划是一个独特的机会使其回归到香港生态自然的一部分。我们设计将所有所需要的项目作为一个热带城市森林的一部位,所有的功能位于高效的桥梁上。所有的物流都是由下层供应,释放上层建筑中简单而高效的塔楼。中间平台承载电车连接,给整个项目提供线性链接。这里也将承载一个线性市场,美食广场和一个壮观的屋顶公园能观赏整个维多利亚港的壮丽景色。

所有的屋顶将提供雨水收集供内部使用。 实践证明,通过调节街道层面有助于降低车辆的CO2和SO2释放—-香港遭受到的最大规模的污染问题。将新项目置于水体中,再向上引用,将有助于提高人民群众居住健康体质和生活质量。

项目内部的水体将灵活的运用到森林项目中。在桥梁结构庇护下,即便是在台风天气下船只都将得到良好的保障,同时也可以提供诸多水上活动,例如水上运动,“船形的电影”,演唱会等等。

AVETRANA- ARCH EXERCISE II

Family villa.
Avetrana, Italy, 2013
Commissioned project.
Under development

This private villa in the landscape is the second chapter of our experimentation on the ‘arch’ archetype.
While in the first project we tested the arch bi-dimensionally, here we extrude it in one direction, creating a sequence of barrel domes. The concept is based on the free adaptation of these linear volumes, in order to react to the landscape. A courtyard, the garage entrance and a swimming pool intrude the volumes, erasing the separation between interior and exterior space.
