We Don’t Need Another Here: A fictional world on top of Corviale

Numbers of characters embody vices of suburban human beings. On top of the 1 km long building of Corviale is shaped a (paradoxical ) self soustained microcity according the basic needs of those characters. There is mr Abusivo who steal rooms (when the family grows up!)  to the neghbour leaving house for the holidays. For him (and those like him) it has been imagined  a modular housing  system. There is mr SuperMan an ms WoderWoman producing in a fantastic pavillon the energy for the community in the effort to shape (and exhibit) their bodies. There is mr Tranquillo who always ends to die brutally. So a cemetery, also included, becomes an agricultural field where the bodies become the fertilizer… please click on the pictures to discover more!

Urban Farm. An eco-village to bridge the two neighborhood of two PEEP (law 167 neighborhoods) Quartaccio and Torrevecchia

Some microrealities are developed inside an in-between this green valley: a museums and teaching facilities, a farm, some productive gardens, a market, some playgrounds, some green fields. Foothpaths connect all the functions for a slow way of life. A pedestrian bridge also connects at an higher level the two neighborhoods.
