Maritime Terminal Salerno (SA), Campania





Designed by Zaha Hadid, the new maritime terminal echoes the oyster -its hard shell enclosing soft, fluid elements within. Key focal points - ticket desks, restaurant, waiting room - steer passengers from ground level to upper deck boarding points. By night the terminal's 'glow' functions almost as a lighthouse for this ancient port city. Café and shops are included in the building.





The terminal will be completed, inaugurated within few weeks

Santa Maria Goretti Church Mormanno (CS), Calabria



The church, dedicated to Saint Maria Goretti, has been designed to feature as a distinctive building within the context it is placed. The main facade, which overlooks the new square of the church, is characterized by few essential elements, which define the main symbols of the Christian tradition, such as the entrance door and the cross. The layour has a natural look and a flowing structure, which draws inspiration from the curves of Baroque architecture. It creates a monumental and dynamic appearance, in which the central space relates differently with each one of the side chapels.



Artifacts have been conceived by taking into account the overall architectural concept, along with the specific interior-spaces they will be placed in. The idea is to make art and architecture to coexist without compromising their autonomy. For this purpose, the interior decorations make an extensive use of traditional materials like marble, bronze and mosaic, thus creating an interplay with baroque featurs of the innovative architecture.

Thanks to the application of passive design's principles, the building makes the best use of availabele natural resources. Natural ventilation and lighting enable the building to relate harmoniously with the surrondong enironment, thus limiting the resort to mechanical plants.

This makes me want to cry!

I don't what's worst, if the project 70s like itself or destroying so well preserved ruins.

It's one of the worst projects I've ever seen.

The rest of projects are good or very good, but I don't understand why in Campania there's money for building private loisir harbours but not a single penny for beaches requalification.

I the more I think of it, less I understand why Naples isn't the most turistical city in the world guys. It has everything and more.

The only explanation I find is it has the worst politicians in the world.

Valdostana University Aosta (AO), Aosta Valley

The project provides for the recovery and transformation of a total area of +56,000 sqm. The area is included in an important and strategic strip of land close to the urban center.



The project involves the conservation and recovery of the main existing buildings and the construction of two new buildings that, while respecting the setting of the original floor plan, rebuild the whole area, opening it to the city and hosting in the most efficient way the spaces dedicated to education and to the common activities of the various faculties, in order to meet all the functional requirements as well as to make it immediately recognizable as a contemporary landmark of the city of Aosta.



The new project strengthens the cultural activities, extends the heritage of green areas and integrates it up to be a system that runs through the city. Organization functions are favored in the university and each building has therefore set its functional autonomy.

Futur-E: How Italians will give new life to 23 former power plants
Regions involved in the project:
Piedmont, Lombardy, Liguria, Veneto, Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Umbria, Marche, Lazio, Campania, Molise, Apulia, Calabria, Sicily, Sardinia



The Alessandria power plant that Enel has decided to close could become an amusement park for extreme sports. And the colossal plant in Porto Tolle, in the upper end of the Po Delta, could become a gorgeous luxury resort, with a restaurant on the smokestack 250 meters up, from which you can make out the shape of Istria jutting out into Adriatic on clear days. And the Piombino plant, which fed the Tuscan steel industry, could be turned into a designer outlet. These are some of the projects for the 23 old and uncompetitive plants that Enel has decided to close and sell. Some are already well defined. For example, the Venice Marghera plant has already been sold and will become a logistics center, since it already had the train tracks, the docks and it is within easy reach of the motorway and airport. Other projects are still just in the idea stage, while some are just starting to take form.

Another twenty or so plants will follow a similar path, because other electricity companies (like Edison) are looking into ways to get rid of their now-useless facilities. Enel, for some plants, has begun a sale procedure. But the most common means is the competition of ideas. For every facility that is to be closed, Enel opens a tender notice open to all, an open contest of creativity. When the contest finishes, the three best projects are selected (the mayor is also in the commission) and given cash prizes, while two other projects receive honorable mentions.

The competition for the small Alessandria plant just ended, approximately 200 proposals were sent in from professional groups, institutions, civic bodies and associations. The winning idea proposes an extreme-sport-themed amusement park, with conference spaces (in the water treatment tank), areas for climbing and scuba diving (the fuel tanks: rock walls on the outside and water on the inside), areas for skateboarding and mountain biking, and a skydiving simulator and so on. But research and innovation centers, or even a clinic (the other selected projects) could emerge in Alessandria. Some plants are so vast that they could accommodate multiple ideas. In the case of Montalto di Castro (Viterbo) there are 330 hectares.

In Porto Tolle, the extremely valuable resort sees the renovation of the colossal industrial structures, but also cultivations of algae for cosmetics and food supplements. In Piombino, one thousand people could be employed at the designer label mall. Montalto di Castro has collected various proposals for big data centers, but the projects are still being developed. In Pietrafitta, in Umbria, there are contacts for investments in the production of high capacity batteries for electric “storage.” While for the facilities in Carpi (Modena) and Camerata Picena (Ancona) it is most probable that solutions will be limited to simply selling the property.

Augusta (Siracusa) and Campo Marino (Capobasso) are still in the phase of collecting proposals and ideas that are not defined in detail, but may see the development of cultural centers, museums or technological centers. While the plants in Rossano Calabro and Bastardo, Umbria are yet to be defined. The old coal plant in Genoa, next to the lighthouse, will remain active for many more months but could become a museum or an attraction open to all, seeing as it is located in an area of the City and the Port Authority. For La Spezia's coal plant, the future is even more vague, considering that it will certainly continue to produce kilowatt hours throughout 2017, therefore the entire disposal process will take years.

Ravello Auditorium Ravello (SA), Campania




Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, the avant-garde auditorium for the festival venue of Ravello on Italy‘s Amalfi Coast creates a futuristic vision. Similar to a bird‘s nest, the naturally curving round construction seems to sit on the edge of the coast.




The rows of seating are arranged as in an amphitheatre and slope down in the direction of the sea. Reminiscent of portholes, two large window or façade openings above the stage and as an entrance afford magnificent views of the sea and the surroundings from the inside.

Bari Waterfront Bari (BA), Apulia


The southern city of Bari aims to be like other European cities (Copenhagen or Barcelona, for example).


In plans that were unveiled on Saturday and for which the local government has secured funds, the ambitious € 230 million project will "reconnect" the historic centre with the Adriatic sea -where there are restaurants and cafes with outdoor seating, apartments, hotels, museums and more- through various redevelopments that will make the seafront more liveable for residents and tourists.
PHASE 1
Lungomare Imperatore Augusto, Molo S. Antonio, Molo S. Nicola
What exactly is going to change?




Fewer cars and more public transports
Roads will be shrunk from four lanes to two, to create more room for pedestrians and cyclists. A new 'fast lane' is to be introduced for buses, called linea del mare, or 'sea line', as well as an electric tram connecting the centre to the waterfront.


More bicycles
New paths will be built specifically for cyclists and runners. The architects behind the project have examined data from route-tracking apps, and found that the waterfront is the most popular area for these activities, but currently it is not well-adapted to non-motorists.


A swimming pool
Along the Augusto Imperatore stretch of the waterfront and opposite Bari's archaeological museum, a new pier will be built with tiered steps providing easy access to the sea. There will be a solarium, a berth for kayaks, small boats for hire, and a pool enclosed within the floating walkway to allow safe swimming.


Pedestrian-friendly walkways
Several of Bari's port areas will be wholly pedestrianized, including the Santo-Spirito Palese and St Nicola piers. The walkways will be made of wooden, storm-proof resin. Redevelopments in other areas will include new public beaches and extending the city's piers to create pedestrian walkways as well as leisure facilities.






Culture
Work has already begun on redeveloping the gardens and squares along the Lungomare Nazario Sauro as well as the transformation of the Margherita Theatre into a contemporary art exhibition space. Making the waterfront more accessible will also mean more opportunities for businesses located there; for example, the fish market on the Sant'Antonio jetty may be restored, and the pedestrianization of other jetties will provide possibilities for the sale of fresh fish, as well as other businesses including boat hire and food.

Arena di Verona Verona, Veneto

The ancient Roman amphitheater built in 30 AD, one of the symbols of the city of Verona, gets a makover. The works should be enterely financed by Italian fashion group, Calzedonia. Today, the Arena is still in use and it is internationally famous for the large-scale opera performances as well as music concerts.


The best project was selected through an international competition that was launched in March 2016. The competition asked designers to cover the Arena with a roofing structure: fully reversible, visually coherent with the amphitheater and its historical surroundings, cost-effective, structurally feasible, functionally and acoustically compatible with the events, including an artificial lighting system, being openable if necessary, and (obviously) have no negative impacts on the original structures.

Winner project by Gmp - Architekten von Gerkan, Marg and Partners

Consonno - Italy - Ghost Town - Aerial Views



In the early 60s, Italy was experiencing a short-lived economic boom which ushered in a new way of life made of shiny cars, rock ‘n’ roll and an overwhelming optimism about the future. Everything seemed to be possible, even razing a small ancient village in the middle of nowhere.
Consonno was born, but now the odd, half-completed village of kitschy buildings is abandoned and crumbling under decades of neglect and graffiti. After being built on the ruins of its predecessor, Consonno seems like it is well on its way to being paved over as well.

Aquileia Tower Jesolo, Veneto
Design > Carlos Ferrater, Gustavo Carabajal, Eleonora Mantese, Xavier Martí Galí

The project is inserted between the Venice Lagoon, the mouth of the rivers Sile and Piave, and the sea. It is integrated via a perpendicular axis into the coastline.


The project involves an underground public car park in the Piazza Internazionale, with tree-lined paths which alternate sun and shade, and the remodeling of Via Aleardi with the laying out of a new public space, the 2,000 sqm Piazza Aquileia, enclosed by a building on two levels which contains the different commercial and amenity uses: shops, cafeterias, a fitness center, and a sundeck and swimming pool.

A lane to the rear solves the accesses to the underground car park and the logistics of the tower and the shopping complex. Standing in the center of this space and surrounded by these buildings is the 73m-high Aquileia Tower.

MUSE | Sciences Museum Trento, Trentino Alto Adige
Design > Renzo Piano Building Workshop




The site of a former Michelin factory, is now a new part of the city of Trento. This transformed post-industrial brownfield site now shares many characteristics with Trento's urban fabric – the clear hierarchy of the design, its functional stratification and an overall similarity in the size of buildings and materials used for their construction. This urban renewal project has reconnected the city to its natural context, which in Trento is defined by the nearby Adige River and Monte Bondone. This new district, for a long time physically separated from the city centre by the railway, now feels psychologically closer. The Quartiere delle Albere is a home for MuSe, the new Sciences Museum, serving to reinforce the cultural identity of this area of Trento.








A vast covered square welcomes the visitor and divides the public section of the building from the part dedicated to the staff. The working spaces include offices, research laboratories, workshops, storage areas for scientific collections and for exhibitions, the library archives and technical spaces. The public area is made up of exhibition spaces, small children's area, conference hall, laboratories, educational labs, a tropical greenhouse, the library and a café. This all adds up to roughly 12,000 sqm.














The exhibition develops on 6 floors and occupies a surface of roughly 5,000 sqm dedicated to permanent exhibitions, temporary exhibitions, tropical greenhouse, instant exhibitions and various cultural events. The narrative thread underlying the permanent exhibition focuses on the diversity of natural environmental settings, with special attention to alpine ecosystems. Starting on the top floor with high peaks and extreme glaciers, and going right down below sea level in the basement, visitors make a journey through different settings and observe the changes that are caused by variations in altitude, by differences in habitat and their specific biodiversity.










The journey proceeds, with a set of experiments in comparative anatomy, genetics and molecular biology, to DNA, biotechnology and nanotechnology and to the technological and ethical challenges that these science innovations pose.

Oberholz Mountain Hut Obereggen, Trentino Alto Adige
Design > Peter Pichler Architecture, Pavol Mikolajcak


The new hut contains a restaurant and is located next to the cable station Oberholz with direct connection to the ski slope.


The cantilevering structure grows out of the hill like a fallen tree with three main branches creating a symbiosis with the landscape. Each of them is facing towards the three most important surrounding mountains. At the end of the branches a large glass facade frames the surrounding mountains from the interior of the hut. The sloped roof shape of the glasses takes his inspiration from typical huts in the area, while the branching roof and complex structural interior expresses a new and contemporary interpretation of the classic mountain hut.








The interior is defined by a complex, curvilinear and visible wood structure that gradually fades into walls and creates so called "pockets" for intimacy. It could also be seen as a new open space interpretation of the classic "Stube", well known in typical structures of the area.

The entire hut is constructed with wood: structural elements and interior in spruce, the facade in larch, furniture in oak- all typical woods from the area. A homogenous sculpture with local materials.
