A CONTEMPORARY INFRASTRUCTURE FOR ARCHITECTURAL CULTURE IN BOLOGNA

LINES-IN-FLUX

Bologna as a city, is read like a single mass, since it has an interlaced spatial structure. The functions are glued to each other, spaces flow from one to another. Likewise, the ‘lines’ of the structure, urban space and the landscape are the clues how the repetition gives the city the spatial adherency. Having learned from each scale of the city, these clues construct the process of the design. The project site is located in the border line in between Bologna and Bolognina, which is an encounter.The static energy of the Bolognina encounters with the movement of the city, the railway and the adherency of lines . The reaction of this static&kinetic encounter can be translated in architecture as the encounter of ‘mass & lines’. The rythym of the lines of porticos build an urban facade which gives the whole system a reference & by respecting to the existing green and life, it recreates itself and produces integrated architectural spaces within green.
