| Project Report:
We are nowadays facing a new way of living, we are surrounded and hyper-stimulated by thousands of images and stuff, and their “life” is getting everyday shorter. We need more than what we have, so we have to start thinking about how to change what we don’t need anymore. Our project can’t focus only on the architectural needs of buildings, but moreover onto the changing that our project can put in place. To underline our design ethos we decided to propose a strategy, the aim of this strategy is to create a landmark that will be able to adapt itself to the contemporary life.
The final step is the integration of the train station inside the building, the connection with the park and adding informal ways to live, work and learn will make the Marzabotto Paper factory highly flexible, connected and able to answer to the ambitious request. The ground floor is highly flexible and fluid, the in-between space has a double function, is, of course, the public space but at the same time is also the outside part of the museum, using the pavilions as an example.
to how to build with sustainable materials. Restoring the missing link with the green areas around and the paper factory is one of the most important things, a sustainability museum needs to be connected with the park.”
WATER ROOF Collecting the water to re-use it for the green roof, the green on the public space and for the toilets.
LIGHT ROOF The smart roof can be a landmark also in the night, using the solar panel energy we can illuminate the whole area.
ENERGY ROOF Covering partially the rooftop with solar panels we can collect the energy that we need to activate the activity on the public space
