Abstract: From the jury report:
Il progetto è di limitate dimensioni ma deriva da un concorso di più ampio respiro per la sistemazione dei percorsi pedonali dell’Oltrarno. Il progetto rivela lo stretto rapporto tra il disegno di semplici elementi e il loro uso quotidiano, testimoniato dal confronto con le fotografie dello stato preesistente. La riappropriazione dello spazio urbano da parte dei bambini è una provocazione interessante condotta con strumenti progettuali non retorici. Il brillante risultato che ne consegue dovrebbe spingere l’amministrazione ad attuarne parti più estese nello spirito di questo primo frammento.

Title: A tool for urban rehabilitation. Atlas of Bethlehem, Beit Jala and Beit Sahour
Authors: Palazzo E, Pelucca B, et al
Editors: Serrini G, Antonelli GF, Zagaglia C
ISBN-13: 9789230010621
Publisher: United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
Place of publication: Paris, France
Publication date: 2012
Pagination: 27-227
Extent: new cartography: 108 sheets representing the quantitative field surveys and 90 sheets representing the qualitative field survey
Abstract: This paper is part of the volume Bethlehem Area Conservation and Management Plan: the Atlas, publication displaying the final report of the Bethlehem Area Conservation and Management Plan.
The volume “The Atlas” reproduces the new cartography in the form of an urban atlas, as resulted from the fieldwork conducted by the team of young architects, who surveyed the three Historic Towns and their Buffer Zones under the scientific and technical supervision of the International Team of Experts (ITE) who coordinated the Plan. The Atlas, conceived as a “manual” for urban rehabilitation, is introduced by a technical note which illustrates the rationale of the methodology and the procedures for the construction of new detailed maps in scale 1:500, based on an existing maps (2003, in scale 1:5.000) and supported by updated aerial photography (2007), through the undertaking of quantitative and qualitative field surveys, which lie at the basis of the methodology of the Plan. The Atlas, to enable an easy consultation, is composed of 108 sheets of the new cartography, accompanied by the corresponding aerial photography, reproduced in scale 1:1.000, and 90 sheets representing the qualitative field survey reduced in scale 1:650. The Survey of Palestine (1930) is reproduced where the corresponding sheet is available.
The BACM Plan ultimately led to the World Heritage nomination of the Nativity Church in Bethlehem (2012) and of the Battir olive and wine landscapes in Beit Jala (2014).

Title: URBAN ACUPUNCTURE: public space regeneration through the 'Pedibus' micro-projects in the Oltrarno quarter in Florence
Authors: Palazzo E, Pelucca B
Publisher: Municipality of Florence
Place of publication: Florence, Italy
Publication date: 2009
Extent: 96 ha
Description: The Pedibus project was delivered in Florence, a UNESCO-protected world heritage site. The morphological situation is complex: in the historic city centre pedestrian areas coexist with congested traffic and diverse local citizens seek a say in evolution of a living cityscape. The project tested a pioneering idea for the regeneration and re-appropriation of public space, specifically addressing the safety needs of three schools. The name Pedibus is derived from Latin pedis (foot) and bus. It provides an incentive to avoid cars use, organizing communal walking like a city bus system with terminals, fixed routes, stops and running times. The Pedibus suggests the participation of citizens through organization of those already in the field: parents, grandparents, volunteers and local police who in turn deal with the accompaniment of children. Research questions include: How can a protected heritage site accommodate the living needs of contemporary citizens, especially children? How can streetscape design encourage pedestrians use? How can minor interventions – urban acupuncture –catalyse further works in difficult contested situations as well as assist in finding funding to achieve them?

ERA Research Statement - 2000 character limit: The Pedibus project was delivered in Florence, a UNESCO-protected world heritage site. In the historic city centre pedestrian areas coexist with congested traffic and diverse local citizens seek a say in evolution of a living cityscape. The project tested a pioneering idea for the re-appropriation of public space, specifically addressing pedestrian safety needs. The name Pedibus is derived from pedis (foot) and bus, providing incentive to avoid car use, organizing communal walking like a bus system with terminals, fixed routes, stops and running times. It uses the participation of citizens through organization of those already in the field: parents, grandparents, volunteers and local police who in turn deal with the accompaniment of children, asking: How can a protected heritage site accommodate the living needs of citizens, especially children? How can minor interventions, urban acupuncture, catalyse further works in contested situations? Cities encourage density and diversity, seeking to minimise car use and improve street safety. The project, in this heavily constrained site, offers successful outcomes that might be usefully adapted elsewhere. The project employed the children themselves in analysis and design activities. The works comprise a reduction of road width, 4m wide platform insertion, new “plaza” with polished stone chalk-writing surface, benches of local limestone, wheelchair access incorporating solar-powered LED steps, bicycle racks, and planting. Ultimately the project served many functions as a recovery plan for the district, a regeneration project of public space in the historic city and a participative process with citizens for the re-appropriation of street sociability.

Title: VERUM “River Arno Park” in San Giovanni Valdarno - Ideas competition, honourable mention
Authors: Palazzo E, Pelucca B
Publisher: Municipality of San Giovanni Valdarno, Italy
Publisher URL: http://www.comunesgv.it/si4web/common/AmvSezione.do?MVPD=0&MVSZ=85
Place of publication: San Giovanni Valdarno, Italy
Publication date: 2004
Extent: Site area 25 ha | River Park 6 km
Abstract: The park is not intended as a formal design of a large garden that needs constant care, but as management of a complex ecological system in close continuity with the existing agricultural tradition and the topography of the area and the city. It is proposed a model of sustainable development park that combine ecological and economic values and an operational approach based on: - deep and punctual knowledge of the area and the existing social and economic reality; - project proposals, strategic in the placement, operating in the context following a philosophy of minimum intervention and using existing resources; - sustainable proposals based on the productive potential of the park: biomass, agricultural and horticultural products, nursery material, accommodation tourist services; - management of the river park with zero energy balance. The design of the river park covers the urban area as a whole and in this sense we wanted to maintain a unified vision and not subdivide for subzones. The project is stratified according to three levels: - surfaces: the treatment of the areas and types of intervention in the maintenance of the river landscape; - lines: the routes of the territory related to a environmental education project; - points: the project for minimum units and the adaptation strategy of the park.

Title: Rehabilitation of the FIAT Belfiore Area in Florence - International restricted competition, finalist
Authors: Palazzo E, Pelucca B
Publisher: Municipality of Florence
Place of publication: Florence, Italy
Publication date: 2002
Extent: Rehabilitation master plan of the Belfiore FIAT area
Abstract: The former Florence FIAT area’s competition gives the opportunity to make a reflection on architecture and green enclosed spaces within the city. The project proposal consists in a grey sandstone basement which contains public facilities and a congress centre and a large translucent glass volume as body of the new hotel. The fragile façade made of white finely etched glass panels is a structure permeable to air that works as a "thermal" skin modulating light, protecting and isolating from sun and wind, breathing according to climate. The glass volume encloses a large void, a microclimate made of trees and water that structures the entire project. The void of the lake is not place of permanence but rather a space of transit and contemplation from the inside of large collective spaces surrounding. It is a fixed, still place around which things happen. The flooded wood refers to the enclosed quiet spaces of medieval cloisters without any nostalgic emphasis. An alder wood (alnus glutinosa) suspended on a water mirror strengthen reflections. Water is maintained exactly at the same level of ground floor to reinforce sensation of abstraction and unreality. The trees help the sensation of liquid light creating a suggestive and uncommon space. Big conic tanks, hidden in the depth of underground technical floor, contain soil and roots of alder trees. Alders are very common trees around water streams and typical of Florence floodplains. The lake is the water fire system reservoir of the entire building.

Place of publication: Florence, Italy

Extent: Site area 1.000 m2 | GFA 160 m2 | Volume 1.200 m3
Abstract: The project proposes a reflection about the role of the door as an undefined space/place between inside and outside. The new door is a large bright screen on which gate's images of overall the world are projected. By day it is a wide translucent and iridescent parallelepiped, ephemeral, which shows its impermanence. By night is a light box visible across the square. The projections of the shows and activities ads that take place there transform the main entrance in a big bright and dynamic sign. The entrance to the Parterre area involves passing below the new gate through an area where you can see abstract images, lights, shadows, projections as reminiscences of the outside real world. The wooden platform is a box that captures sounds and amplifies the trampling noise of the visitors. These sounds are the only physical manifestation of this no-place: the sound of the passage.

Extent: Site area 2,5 ha
Abstract: The redevelopment of Dufourplatz offers the possibility of an architectural redefinition of the existing steep slopes. A building-square creates a space for contemplation overlooking the Zurich Lake and hosts the service areas and a covered parking. The intervention on Goldhaldenplatz is based on minimal solutions that enhance all the ancient pre-existences and the changes of life: the cycle of seasons and climates, the water cycle, the alternation of day or night, growth and decline. Through a new forest of beech and oak trees that cover the entire square, it is returned to the abandoned space the capacity to return to be present accepting and soliciting uses unpredictable.

Authors: Palazzo E, Pelucca B
Publisher: Europan
Publisher URL: http://www.archi.fr/EUROPAN/europan5/ieuropan5/palazz.htm
Place of publication: Palermo , Italy
Publication date: 1999
Extent: Site area 2 ha | Lungoverde promenade 500 m | Volume 30.000 m3
Abstract: The project takes into account the Town-Planning Program requirements and the proposal of a new road. The creation of «urban parks» through the preservation of productive agricultural areas offers the opportunity to re-think the role and the shape of «green» spaces in urban environments. With regard to Cruillas borough, the protection of the environment must not remain limited to building constraints or to a generic definition of conservation areas. The existence of ancient citrus orchards requires special care in order to turn town-planning constraints into a real entity. The exceptional nature of the terrain requires a close reading, a specific plan. The plan takes the nature of the area as a given fact and uses the view over the orchards as a main focal point. It intends to define a settlement principle. The layout of the new road is closely linked to the terrain and reconsiders the direction of the tree rows and of the old stone walls that organize the land. The new buildings follow the linear system of the village to limit as much as possible the transversal dimension of the operation. The proposal considers the introduction of building typologies, functions and public spaces at the scale of the quarter through the definition of their rapport with the landscape. The new built-up fronts face the citrus orchards and create a clear and well-defined limit between the village and the countryside. The intrinsic beauty of the site is positively exploited by the development of a lungoverde that is a slightly elevated promenade with a view. From the lungoverde the town faces the countryside.
Description: Europan, a biennial competition organized in conjunction with 21 European countries, offers young, highly promising architects the opportunity of realizing their first finished projects. The theme for Europan 5 is "New Housing Landscapes, Travel and Proximity", and the key question posed is whether it is still possible in the present day city to combine two important urban functions: the city as "hub" in a traffic network and the city as residence.
Europan 5 raises the question how to re-appropriate these interstitial spaces in order to turn them into residential areas. How can one invent new forms of urban landscape? And, if the search is no longer for mastery of the global village, how, then, can these residual, disparate contemporary localities be transformed into opportunities for urban enhancement? How can urban, residential, landscaped and architectural entities be created as new parts in the jigsaw puzzle of the town's existing structures, in the modern metropolis' torn and discontinuous fabric?

Publication date: 1999
Extent: Site area 5 ha | Playground area 8.500 m2 | Volume 600 m3
Abstract: Existing embankments enclose the play-garden and, as ramparts, lead an upper walk path. A grass terracing cushions the elevation difference and refers to the Sanssouci Park. The inner play-garden is thought as a landscape intervention. Vegetation is the hint to design it. Trees, grass, shrubs, musk, lichens and their main complements, water and rocks, are the theme of the play-garden. Unpredictable forms and uses are studied to stimulate children imagination and learning over the alternation of seasons. Each piece in the central square constitutes a game, an action, a space, and refers to one botanical species.
Description: The Peter-Joseph-Lenné-Award of the state of Berlin is a competition of ideas for garden and landscape architecture and for the planning of open space and landscape. The procedure is targeted especially at young landscape architects, planners, scientists, architects and artists who are being trained or are employed in the aforementioned specialist fields.

Place of publication: Prato, Italy
Publication date: 1998
Extent: Site area 34.000 m2 | Public green area 8.700 m2 | GFA 6.650 m2 | Volume 38.800 m3
Abstract: The design of the settlement layout is based on the recognition of landform. The project re-proposes latent settlement rules, yet consolidated, able to recover the structuring capacity of the layout and its landscape value. Six buildings of 60 m long are arranged in the lot according to a north-south orientation with slightly changes in direction. A wall of dry stone delimits the project on the west side and marks the boundary between the industrial area and the new residential compound on the edge of the Tavola old village. The massive wall has the function to reduce the hydrologic risk due to the vicinity of a riverbank and to the alluvial origin of the terrain. The wall brings unity to the new residential development formed by several construction phases, different clients and users. The wall structure is built with metal gabions filled with local limestone loose rocks. This technique refers to the local building tradition of dry stone walls. The technology of gabions, currently used for hydraulic interventions, has the characteristics of mass, strength and thickness of a dry stone wall and has a limited impact on the intervention’s budget. It evokes a water bank and refers to the origin of the site alluvial plain. Overall, the stone wall recalls the relationship between the buildings of the historic center of Prato and the ancient walls that surround it.

Abstract: The project uses the relation between interiors and exteriors to integrate completely the structure in to the context. In order to use an adjacent underground volume and to realize a raking audience part of the inside surface area was excavated. Through glass surfaces light manifests outside the activities carried out in to the auditorium while, on the side, deep openings permit a glimpse on the interiors from the street. Roof projections at the eaves serve to shade against excessive insulation in summer. Outdoors, the introduction of new architectural elements transforms the existing parking lot in to a small public square.

Extent: Site area 3 ha | Park 1,15 ha | GFA 5.000 m2 | Volume 25.000 m3 | 60 dwellings
Abstract: Different contests look at the banks generating physical isolation and lack of connections among parts. The project faces pragmatically the morphology of the site, solving relations among existing objects. New residence location attempts the rehabilitation of the existing structures avoiding the introduction of new growth directions. The plan regards the state of the ground and the spaces designed are related to the possible perspective views: blocks frame the lava cliff. The intervention on the park consists in elementary operations that emphasizes site morphology and enable lava fruition. The lava bank is an extreme landscape. To change this condition means to change the nature of the site.
Description: Europan, a biennial competition organized in conjunction with 21 European countries, offers young, highly promising architects the opportunity of realizing their first finished projects.
Europan 4 focuses on the one hand on the problems which arise in the periphery and on the other hand on the transitional areas between town and suburb and between one urban area and the other. At the same time Europan 4 calls for the qualifications of elements from the recent past, which can manifest themselves in many cultural forms (in the shape of buildings, urban designs, but also landscapes).
