Combining respect for history with the new housing model: barracks / food warehouse in urban neighborhood in which to live, grow, work, learn and grow. Every design choice is oriented to urban and environmental sustainability, trying to reduce the need for residents' mobility, using resources efficiently and developing integrated and knowledge to the younger generation.
Andrea Desimone attended the Urban Regeneration Laboratory in Alessandria, proposing the Vision developed with the AD.a’s team.
The proposal have been developed with a problem in mind: Alessandria should find its identity again and should be proud of it. The basis of a strong identity is the knowledge of its own history, built upon two urban settlements across the river.
Dialogue, Harmony and Identity are the principles upon which we’ll build the future with value, knowledge, technology and respect for the environment.
