Il progetto prevede la realizzazione di un polo di ricerca a basso impatto ambientale che stabilisca un rapporto diretto con le preesistenze storiche , sociali e paesaggistiche del territorio circostante. Uno spazio dedicato all’eccellenza scientifica e in modo particolare al future farming, che vedrà convergere […]
Progettazione e allestimento: Paolo Monesi (Waferstudio) con Studio Strati
Committenza: Custodia di Terra Santa
Il complesso Dar Al-Consul (DAC) è situato nel cuore della Città Vecchia di Gerusalemme: le sue origini risalgono al primitivo insediamento della città più antica, e si trovava di fronte
lungo la strada del cardo in epoca romana; infatti all’interno è presente un importante tratto di strada romana e parte di una bottega sul cardo; è stato in seguito caravanserraglio mentre l’edificio è del periodo mamelucco; nel xix secolo ospitava il consolato prussiano.
L’intervento proposto rispetta totalmente l’esistente e le diverse stratigrafie rilevate. Il sito si presenta su diversi livelli e l’intento progettuale è stato quello di collegare questi dislivelli unicamente con rampe. Il luogo verrà destinato ad attività di accoglienza e come hub per diverse start up e laboratori artigianali. Un albero di olivo presente all’interno simboleggia le diverse attività dell’area che lo utilizzavano per diverse attività (come la fabbricazione di sapone).
E’ un pezzo di Gerusalemme sottratto dall’esterno verso l’interno e per questo la pavimentazione è dello stesso materiale della pavimentazione della città vecchia.
The Dar Al-Consul complex (DAC) is located in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem: its origins date back to the primitive settlement of the oldest city, and it was located opposite
along the cardo road in Roman times; in fact, inside there is an important part of Roman road and part of a shop on the cardo; it was later a caravanserai while the building dates back to the Mamluk period; in the 19th century it housed the Prussian consulate.
The proposed intervention fully respects the existing and the different stratigraphies detected. The site is on different levels and the design intent was to connect these differences in height only with ramps. The place will be used for hosting activities and as a hub for various start-ups and craft workshops.
An olive tree present inside symbolizes the different activities in the area that used it for different activities (such as the manufacture of soap).
Urban Kit Invasion is a project that was born in the wake of tactical urban planning, the one that sees temporariness not in its negative meaning but as a paradigmatic sign of our times.
It also touches on the issue of social commitment as it proposes to equip cities with a kit of special containers that can be moved and assembled like a lego to create small public spaces equipped where the urban void asks us to be urgently rethought pending of a permanent solution.
We started from the analysis of similar experiences made abroad in the residential and commercial fields and we have adapted them to the Italian situation where there is a need to create low-cost meeting spaces in the suburbs. We also discovered along the way that this project is, in its small way, a universal system applicable everywhere.
Urban Kit Invasion is a public space organization system that is also based on the concept of circular economy and sustainability as it is made with recycled containers and construction materials.
UKI is off-grid thanks to the integration of photovoltaic panels for lighting, a wifi charging service.
Waferstudio is developing an office bench together with UNIFOR. It features slender, tapered, wooden legs and asymmetrical dividing screens that create a vibrant landscape in the common spaces, typical of contemporary workplaces.
We are proud to announce that Waferstudio has won the tender for the architectural design of the new Italian offices of HDI! The offices will be located in the modern EUR neighborhood in Rome, in the fascinating Palazzo Italia.
