arch 2018 workshop

unige/DAD coastal design studio - spring 2019

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

The studio was formed of architecture students from University of Genoa Department of Architecture and Design and exchange students from Europe and Canada.The studio also included two workshops with FIU architecture and landscape architecture students. The studio was taught by FIU & 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;

- establish an urban and architectural strategy based on permanence (infrastructure), semi-permanence, and ephemerality to address durability and change at different scales of time;

- 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;

- architecturally address several changing environmental conditions, including a predicted sea level rise of 20-80 cm by 2100 by providing a raised edge to the site that also provides and defines public space;

- 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).
