unige coastal design studio - spring 2018

site
genoa port-city, renzo piano's 'blueprint' to develop connection between expo and fiera, project site in red

The studio included architecture students from University of Genoa Department of Architecture and Design and also Erasmus exchange students from Europe and South America. FIU Landscape students participated during a portion of the studio to develop their own projects for redesigning the public spaces of the whole port area in dialogue with the coastal design studio. The architecture students made urban/architectural proposals along the southern edge of the Molo area. The studio was taught by Unige adjunct professor Matthew Rice.

- develop a 'linear architectonic structure' and a sequence of articulated public spaces to define the city/water's edge of the Molo;

- provide an 'entrance' or introduction to the city for arriving ships and respond/contribute to its identity;

- establish ground floor as public and accessible to formal and informal use/markets;

- respond to Renzo Piano's 'Blueprint' and the new water course connecting the Expo (main public area of port) with the Fiera (for international trade shows);

- address a predicted sea level rise of 20-80 cm by 2100.
