The concept for the new building of the Province of Bolzano, born from a sculpture idea generated by the desire to establish continuity with the past of the city of Bolzano, is seen as a re-construction of memories, spirit of places and iconological transposition of  the symbols of history of  the  architecture of the city.

The beautiful historical site represents a chance for subtle unique rearrangement with its own identity. We propose to arrange entrance and exhibition hall under the main square, which is surrounded by three charming, historical buildings. The new space intervention is seen only by four gentle skylights, which give a new meaning to the existing square, they let the existing architecture to still be seen, as well as they alert that there is something else going on underground.

Article source: Map-Lab, inc.

The International Living Future Institute launched the Living City Design Competition in 2010, seeking designs for our cities in the year 2035. map-lab’s submission was ResilienCity. ResilienCity seeks to set the vision for the future of Boston’s Innovation District, a new neighborhood built on greyfield and brownfield sites that will provide residences and workplaces for over 300,000 people. We have reached the tipping point where we need to think of the whole, not the self. We have arrived at a time when we need to stop behaving selfishly and begin to explore how we can all come together as a community to create environments that are culturally enriching, healthier, and equitable. We come back to nature to do this.

Rennes metro station in Rennes, France by Atelier Zündel & Cristea

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

At the start, we wanted to define for ourselves what a metro station is: it acts as a marker along the metro line’s trajectory, an easily accessible public space with simple and fluid pathways, clear and intelligible signage. Our project, addressing the metro station stop “Gare (Train station) – Line B” in Rennes, attempts to render concrete and visible this new conception of the metro’s urban significance by concentrating on intelligibility and on the quality of the station’s space.
