Progetto Manifattura, Rovereto ITALY 2010

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

ponte_principale1

In the beginning, it will be a park – a green area of five hectares, which will immediately replace the asphalt landscape and warehouses constructed in the ‘60s and ‘70s. This first phase will see both the renovation of historic buildings of the old factory and the creation of leisure facilities along the border heading south towards the river Leno.  The return of industrial buildings, which will appear at a later stage in the development, will be suggested in the landscape of the park, through parallel strips mimicking the surrounding vineyards, and hiding the pre-constructed infrastructure under the ground. As the development grows, strips of the park will be raised up to reveal the warehouses below, and remain as the roofs of the buildings themselves, integrating the buildings with the park and surrounding landscape. This development will minimize the drawbacks of traditional work yards, and return a large amount of ex-industrial land back to nature and the use of the town.
