estonoesunsolar finalista concorso internazionale Bella Fuori _3

Bella Fuori 3 Bologna Fondazione Del MonteBella Fuori 3 Bologna Fondazione Del Monte 3 estonoesunsolar

estonoesunsolar é uno dei 3 studi selezionati per la seconda fase del concorso internazionale Bella Fuori_3 a Bologna. Bandito dalla Fondazione Del Monte di Bologna e Ravenna che nell’ambito della sua finalità statutaria di sostegno allo sviluppo economico e sociale della comunità, si appresta ad avviare in collaborazione con l’Assessorato all’Urbanistica, Ambiente, Qualità Urbana e Città Storica, l’Urban Center Bologna e il Quartiere San Vitale, la terza edizione del Progetto Strategico “Bella Fuori”, un concorso di progettazione in due fasi che riguarda interventi di urbanistica partecipata in zone periferiche della città. Alla base del progetto vi è l’idea che il centro “storico” della città, pur restando il principale luogo di riferimento, debba collegarsi in un’ideale rete di differenti luoghi, che siano altrettanti centri di riferimento della cittadinanza. Con le precedenti edizioni, il progetto ha permesso di dotare la città di Bologna di due nuove centralità: la nuova Gorki a Corticella e la piazza Spadolini/il Giardino Bentivogli a San Donato. La terza edizione del concorso invita i progettisti a confrontarsi con una nuova sfida, in linea con i richiami alla riduzione della spesa, all’approccio smart della “città-intelligente” e al concetto di eco-design e si concentra su una precisa zona del territorio comunale: un’area verde inutilizzata alla Croce del Biacco, nel quartiere di San Vitale, dove è prevista anche la realizzazione di una nuova scuola dell’infanzia (non oggetto del bando).
In data 23 settembre la commissione esaminatrice presieduta dall’arch. Mario Cucinella e composta dall’arch. Mauro Panigo e dall’arch. Luigi Centola ha selezionato 3 qualificati progettisti, invitandoli a redigere, mediante momento di confronto con la cittadinanza, altrettanti progetti preliminari per un intervento “a costo contenuto” ma ad alta qualità ambientale e sociale che riqualificherà lo spazio pubblico aperto, il sistema degli accessi e delle connessioni.I 3 studi di architettura selzionati sono:
- Antonio Ravalli Architetti – Rappresentante – con Jornet-Llop Pastor SLP e FF Architectura;
- Patrizia Di Monte – Rappresentante – per estonoesunsolar con Ignacio Gravalos Lacambra, Elena Vincenzi e Giorgio Volpe;
- Gaia Calamosca – Rappresentante – per Ciclostile Architettura, con Giacomo Beccari e Alessandro Miti.

estonoesunsolar takes part in “DAS DETROIT PROJEKT” _ Bochum

13/10/2013

This is not Detroit_estonoesunsolar

estonoesunsolar participó junto a la Fundación Zaragoza Ciudad del Conocimiento al seminario de apertura de “This is not Detroit Project”, Think global, act local! en Bochum (Rhur – Alemania),  organizado por “Schauspielhaus Bochum y Urbane Künste Ruhr”, colaborando con equipos de Alemania, Inglaterra, Polonia y Estados Unidos. La intervención española viene comisariada por Basurama. Estas primeras jornadas de presentación del proyecto han servido para arrojar una mirada sobre el futuro de 4 ciudades Europeas que han sido redefinidas por la implantación de la General Motors. La presencia de la multinacional tiene la capacidad de modificar la estructura económica y urbana del territorio. ¿De qué manera reaccionan las ciudades a esta contingencia? ¿Cuál es el impacto? ¿Cuál es el futuro? ¿Se producen situaciones extrapolables?

En estas jornadas se han compartido experiencias, propuestas, reacciones, éxitos y fracasos que hayan intentado reactivar situaciones presentes en ciudades anestesiadas por la crisis. Se ha desarrollado un workshop abierto a los ciudadadanos donde se han arrojado unas primeras propuestas de reuso de la antigua fábrica de Opel y de posibles mecanismos que puedan incentivar nuevos procesos de economías locales. Para clausurar el seminario Tyree Guyton nos habló de Heidelberg Project, proyecto artístico que lleva a cabo en la ciudad de Detroit desde hace 27 años, promoviendo una mejora de los espacios urbanos sometidos al progresivo abandono e integrando los habitantes del barrio. En primavera 2014 Bochum acogerá el Festival “This is not Detroit” (more…)

workshop autoconstrucción PICS: Publc identity and common spaces_ universitá Roma3

30/07/2013

En el mes de mayo fuimos invitados al workshop PICS, para devolver una utilidad pública a un entorno paisajistacamente privilegiado y con una fuerte demanda social. El workshop se enmarca en el proyecto de investigación LUS Living Urban Scape y en colaboración con el Master “Arti Architettura Città” del Departamento de Arquitectura de la “Università degli Studi Roma Tre”. Se formaron tres grupos de estudiantes a cargo de tres equipos internacionales François Vadepied e Mathieu Gontier de Wagon Landscaping – Paris; German Vanzuela  dir. Universidad De Talca (Cile) y François Guynot de Boismenu de la L’école nationale supérieure d’architecture de Paris La Villettegravalosdimonte de estonoesunsolar. Previamente los estudiantes habían realizado unos recorridos intuitivos (una “deriva”) y elaborados unos mapas dirigidos por Francesco Careri. Cada grupo trabajó en una zona concreta del “Parchetto Feronia” y realizó una intervención en función del material (tablas de 20.5.400 , 15.2.400 y 5.5.400) y del tiempo disponible: 6días. Se trataba de un ejercicio de reflexión sobre las intervenciones mínimas, sobre la relación del material con el paisaje y con la temporalidad, sobre la autoconstrucción.

Junto con los estudiantes, detectamos tres líneas de intervención:

  1. “Bosco a dóndole”. Un recorrido semioculto que comunicaba los dos niveles del parque rodeado de grandes chopos.
  2. “Stazione Feronia”. Un conjunto de árboles que ofrecían  sombra en lugar próximo a la zona existente de juegos infantiles.
  3. Un sistema de señalización que pusiera en valor los recorridos y creara una red de las intervenciones realizads en el workshop.

gravalosdimonte workshop PICS Parchetto Feronia 2 El “bosco a dóndole” se situó en una de las zonas más hermosas del parque, al final de un recorrido en pendiente, que disponía de grandes chopos en los laterales y un tapiz de hiedra que invadía el terreno. La idea fue no alterar el plano del suelo, (no luchar contra un elemento invasivo), por lo que se crearon unos bancos con una geometría irregular que iba adaptándose a la disposición de los troncos, casi materializando su sombra, y que irían suspendidos de los árboles mediante cuerdas, flotando, ingrávidos, permitiendo a los vecinos “flotar” en el aire. Se trataba de una zona especial, que al anochecer se inundaba de luciérnagas que mostraban unos bancos voladores a través de un cielo punteado.

10 ideas about estonoesunsolar _ 28 placemaking examples in the city of Zaragoza

17/07/2013

estonoesunsolar_2009+2010_gravalosdimonte copia1_objetive. Contemporary cities present a wide variety of unresolved issues, as shown by the many different abandoned empty plots and empty buildings existing in the urban fabric. This situation has been taken advantage of by the inhabitants of Zaragoza as an opportunity to intervene directly in the city. The “Estonoesunsolar” programme of Zaragoza City Council, commits to the recovery of PUBLIC SPACE as the backbone of today’s city, through the occupation of empty plots for tremporary public use. “Estonoesunsolar” started off with temporary interventions in abandoned plots in the historical quarter of the city, of public and private ownership.  Later, given their great success, they spread to the rest of the city.The programme offers a quick answer to the needs of each neighbourhood, analysing the socio-economic conditions, amenities and green spaces that already exist, as well as the deficiencies of each area.  Social cohesion is favoured through citizen participation processes. At the same time, many different cultural and educational activities have been carried out that emphasise the value of the interventions, inviting citizens to experience these spaces. The program’s initial goal was to develop an Employment Plan, which should involve 50 workers for cleaning empty plots of the Historic Center of Zaragoza. On that premise, it raised the possibility of developing a set of proposals, that beyond strictly complying with the objectives, allowed the temporary occupation of the empty plots, offering a range of temporary uses for these frequently misunderstood places.. These proposals start from the program “everyday gaps (los vacíos cotidianos),” held in 2006 within the framework of  “en la frontera (on the edge)” of Zaragoza, in which the same authors were able to begin testing the ideas about the temporary occupation of sites, this time in an “artistic” context, with different constraints but holding the same concepts.

2_ the accident. The proposals arise from the observation of different and numerous existing sites in the context of Zaragoza historic city center, assumed as unexplained gaps in many cases (and surprising in most of them). In some of the sites, the demolition of a small wall has been enough for a sudden vacuum to appear, showing cold in their nakedness, out of context, and that surprisingly opens up new visuals, hidden until then, to create a new contemporary urban space. There is a reading of the city with the codes of an “non-written urbanism“, spontaneous in some cases, and consolidated in others. In this regard, and given that applications are developed following studies of needs demanded by associations and neighbours, it is a flexible tool to start responding to specific problems.

3_the  vacuum. Value has been put in the suggestion of emptiness, the void, the invisible and silence. These temporary loosening of the plot is a dynamic tool, changing (temporarily), allowing a flexible and alternative reading of the city and the public spaces. It aims for non-material and ethereal solutions , expressing the provisional nature of its presence and establish a dialectic with their in-built environments. Vacuum is hoped to be the creator of situations and events.

4_the name. From the outset it was considered essential to find a name for the interventions, which give meaning to a program without program, without a property owner, to a un built site, to a nameless space. The program was called “estonoesunsolar”(this-is-not-an-empty-site). It was desired to escape from the constraints imposed by words and their meanings, with the intention from the beginning, to propose a new look (this is not a site, this is not what it looks like, look at it with different eyes …). In short, it was an invitation to think again, to imagine possible contents, to propose new situations and create passionate places (to make a privileged place from every idea). (more…)
