Description
Rome Community Ring competition primarily deals with architectural renovation and new functions implementation for Forte Portuense; set this starting point, the call for ideas aims to become the first piece of a wider and more ambitious frame.
Design has to stick to Forte Portuense only, however the overall vision should place such intervention in relation with the network of forts already described. This system of forts shall be considered to be interlinked through a web of wellness / cultural paths and shall appraise overall architectonical and functional features.
Public Administration suggests that the project shall be seen as single element belonging to a belt of revolutionary cultural structures - structures capable on one hand of allowing local communities to express their own creativity and dynamism, and on the other hand of endorsing interest and appeal in the millions of tourists visiting the city every year for its architectural amenities. The proposal shall embrace a wide range of users and function considering the proximity to the city: i.e. a modern and elegant community centre for all ages / a catalyst for individuals’ creativity and talents / a business incubator / a green area / a sports area / an outdoor activities area.
In order to focus on culturally appealing and sustainable solutions, here follows a list of suggested / compulsory functions to enclose in the proposals. Combining / choosing / integrating / enhancing / balancing / giving different weights to the following scenarios is part of the competition task and is entirely up to the designer.
