DIVERSITY IS SYMBIOSIS

EX002_ Ephemeral Space Design studio_ MSc 1st 









Jan. 2020 - Jun. 2020
Location: New York, USA
Team: Elisa Lazzarotto, Francesca MaggioniAdvisor: De Lucchi Michele, Balena Arista Francesca, Greco MarioFull design portfolio visible in issuu

Introduction

This work was a practice of transforming and developing abstract thought. Exploring the intangible concept of diversity, the installation Living Bridge proposal aims to provide a possible solution for future scenarios - flooded cities. Symbiosis embraces the  two different elements in creating new wonders and dynamics.

Based on the consequence of climate changes, humans create living bridges that “invited nature to   intervene” and to reconnect buildings and cities. Living Bridge only utilizes seawater and rigid metal mesh in order to create natural structural elements Biorock that is constantly growing and solidifying. 

We want to explore the symbiotic relationship between human and nature and wherever it can be an opportunity to create something better for our world. This installation allows one to experience moments of personal reflection as well as enjoy the beauty of diversity in another dimension.















HEARTBEAT

LGHT002_ Light and City_ MSc 2st









Sep . 2020  -Dic. 2020
Location: Castelvecchio,Verona, Italy Team: Margot Silvestrini, Marco Eugeni, Xiaoman Bai, Mariana Firigato

Introduction

‘Can the lighting become the medium to let us feel close to each other during the pandamic?'

Maintaining 2 meters from other people is necessary under social distance, under COVID-19. Physical isolation is reflected on the low physical contact between people and increases the loneliness feeling among us. We can’t hug, hold each other’s hand and feel each other. On the occasion of "Festival della luce'' 2021 in Verona, our proposal is an attempt to respond to the question: Can the light be the medium to reconnect us and how?

The project proposes a lighting installation, including 7x7 illuminated rods, fog and interactive music, to be controlled by the rhythm of the heartbeat of the people who are touching the sensor of rod. Heartbeat is the core of the design of this project. We installed 49 rods in the garden of Castelvecchio and all featured the pulse sensor to promote people to touch it and translate their heartbeat into light and sound. People’s contact with the sensor affects the flicker frequency of light and forms a variety of collective lightscapes. The general lighting of the garden is provided by luminous pebbles considering the site's characteristics. 










NUCLEAR BALANEION

EX001_ Personal Work









Jun. 2019 -  Aug. 2019
Location: Kaschiwazaki, Japan
Independent Work

Introduction

The project explores the possibility of creating a bathhouse near nuclear power plant, which responds to the anti -nuclear crisis conditions and global warming. Nuclear power plant is most efficient, also have the lowest greenhouse gas emissions and death rate among all kinds of power plants in the world. Although few severely nuclear disasters had led people to act against it.

My proposal integrates a Bathhouse (commercial tourism) near nuclear power plant taking advantage of its waste heat. It aims to design several spatial experiences which inspired by nuclear physical properties and nuclear power plants. The bathhouse maintains a historical identity as a place for social interaction. In ancient Greece, its function included education and training. Then extended to a social Center in ancient Roman with theatre, library and even market. Through a series of social and entertainment experiences, people begins to ease the existing tension and mistrust between public and nuclear power













THE BIRTH OF DESIRE

SCN001_ International Scenography Workshop 









Aug. 2019
Location: Teatro La Lira, Ripoll, Spain Advisor: Bibiana Puigdefàbregas 
Team: Lola García, Juliana Pinto,María Turreira,Weronika Walasz


Introduction

The project is based on James Joyce's novel "Araby" which is one of the  stories collected in "Dubliners ". This is a story about a boy who falls in love with a girl, the desire of love grows and gradually become overwhelming, then lead to a tragical ending.

Based on the story, we took inspiration from the myth of Icarus, using metaphor of fire (an emissive ball) as one of the main character. Through the study of relationship between body, light and space, narrative and six main scenes are developed to tell the story. Location where the play is performed is an open public space designed by Rcr Arquitect in Ripoll.

Therefore, the stage designed has the particularity of the site and the characteristics of the space. While using architecture and lighting to create dramatic narrative, an immersive experience was provided and contemporary comforts such as built-in seating. Here, the audience is no longer sitting on the chair to watch the performance, but fully involved with the whole space, performance, sound, and atmosphere. The audience will run with the actors in the performance together to reform the plot of the drama.
