The project area, located between Corso Palermo and Via Aosta, is part of a wider revitalisation plan in the Aurora neighbourhood to improve the permeability of specific users with a decentralisation purpose of the area.
The attractors, the action poles and the dynamics identified during the urban masterplan design become the project guidelines on the neighbourhood scale: the soft mobility and the public space as a joining and equilibrating point.
ADDITION: raising, layering and embedding operations become an essential tool in order to redefine the areas through new settlement principles, which are able to alter the public space. Student housing, an auditorium–study hall and an exhibition centre constitute the new programme.
The intervention attaches as a parasite to the existing building to create temporary or permanent relationships. In this way, a new perceptive and innovative image of architecture is shown.
The exhibition centre opens to the public as recreative place where people can take workshops in the atelier, relax and read at the book store, or check out the temporary showroom and the exposition hall.
