THE PROBLEM

/La Sapienza – University City/

From  “La Sapienza” university city  foundation to today it changes architectural style from Marcello Piacentini or Gio Ponti to the prefabricated structures. All the different Style are mixed today.
The deterioration of this area and my other logistic problem have created the need for a Solution. A link from the glorious past and the  present. NEXU.

THE CHALLENGE

To bring “La Sapienza” University city to be again a great place to study and so to revalue the historical building and through the right mix with new micro-architecture

This Micro-architecture hadto be cheap, easy to built and resistant.

THE RESEARCH

To better understand the problem and so find the right solution the research was based on my self experience and knowledge of the city and on a series of interviews to students, teachers and general staff regarding their personal experience in living the University.

It was also important to have a historical comprehension of the architecture to deliver a micro-architecture that was harmonic to the existing structures.

THE CHOOSEN AREA

SKETCHES

THE SOLUTION

/ What “La Sapienza” needs /

-clear signs

-more meeting points

-stylistic and formal homogeneity

/ The PLAYGROUND /

It is possible to create new innovating usable place, table, seats informative pannel by placing this tape on the ground.

When you place it on the grass it merges itself with the grass thank to the honeycomb grid.

When you place on cement or stone you will bring there the “green” and the modular structure perfectly merge itself with the choosen area and the historical building.

THE PROTOTYPE

FINAL DESIGN

/Modularity/

The project is based on 6 types of modules.

They are easy to built, light to transport and designed to withstand weather, time and thugs.
