Bravo Bucharest

Turning the historical area into a pedestrian zone is a great initiative, let's hope Sofia follows on the same path

pedestrianization does promote revitalization and in the case of Bucharest especially so since they a good subway system.

Great updates! I wish we had more pedestrian zones like that in places like Columbus.

Great jobs wherever you look

The level of quality in renovations was raised pretty high all over the place in Europe in the last decade. You hardly see any cheap rubbish renovations anymore, like we used to in the early 90s especially.

TORINO (Turin) - Italy -
Lingotto Factory Conversion

Lingotto is a district of Turin, Italy, that named the Lingotto building in Via Nizza, which once was a huge automobile factory, constructed by Fiat. Built from 1916 and opened in 1923, the design (by young architect Matté Trucco) was unusual in that it had five floors, with raw materials going in at the ground floor, and cars built on a line that went up through the building. Finished cars emerged at rooftop level, where there was a rooftop test track. It was the largest car factory in the world at that time. For its time, the Lingotto building was avante-garde, influential and impressive—Le Corbusier called it "one of the most impressive sights in industry", and "a guideline for town planning".

The factory became outmoded in the 1970s and the decision was made to finally close it in 1982. The closure of the plant led to much public debate about its future, and how to recover from industrial decline in general. An architectural competition was held, which was eventually awarded to Renzo Piano, who envisioned an exciting public space for the city. The old factory was rebuilt into a modern complex, with concert halls, theatre, a convention centre, shopping arcades and a prestigious hotel. The eastern portion of the building instead, is the headquarter of the Automotive Engineering faculty of the Polytechnic University of Turin. The work was completed in 1989. The track was however retained and can still be visited today on the top floor of the shopping mall and hotel.

TORINO

Industrial Areas' Revitalization - SPINA 3 -


The territory of Spina 3 is an area of one million square metres in the northern part of the city, not far from the city centre.
Starting from the last decade of the 19th century, the river Dora Riparia (whose water was used for power) favoured the establishment of important industries like Ferriere FIAT (iron metallurgy), Michelin (tyres), Paracchi (carpets), Superga (shoes), and Officine Savigliano (electrical and railway manufactured goods). For instance, Savigliano built the iron roof of the main Milano railway station and the rails for the Trans-Siberian railway.

Result of an internetional competion on the basis of the masterplans by Jean-Pierre Buffi and Andreas Kipar, the Dora Park project covers an area of 45 acres straddling the river, which reuses the materials, structures and routes of weaving landscape and its past industrial architectures.
The creation of the park has different parts: the green park in the Michelin and Vitali areas by Latz+Parteners, the church of Santo Volto by Mario Botta, the business park Dora, the technological park of the environment.
