Torino-DAD + atelier mobile + VIVIAMOLAq
design+build workshop on facilities linked to mobility spaces and public places in L'Aquila, Abruzzo, Italy
How can we transform urban spaces for mobility into public multifunctional spaces to gather people of different ages and backgrounds?
The workshop started with site visits and lectures on the city, mobility, design+build case studies and the results of the previous workshop Build-Use-Stay held by the local association VIVIAMOLAq and the Università degli Studi dell'Aquila. Visiting critics took part to the collective discussions and presented in a series of lectures their professional or educational work on similar topics.
After the survey of three critical sites, the bus stop at Monteluco di Roio, venue of the Engeneering School of the University, was chosen to develop the design of a
structure giving rest places, shadow, view points and domesticity to a vastly void area sorrounded by a fascinating landscape.
The design scheme was developed sketching on the common board, model making, comparison of different solutions, condensed in a final proposal, a zigzaging wall embracing the existing stop and following the turn of the bus route to host seats and openings to the views on the Appennines.
The structure was built with a 'building box' composed by beams and planks in larch timber, with the assistance of the tutoring team.
The workshop was held with the support of Comune de L'Aquila and Ordine degli Architetti, Pianificatori, Paesaggisti e Conservatori della Provincia dell'Aquila
