The wall is the founding act of architecture encompasses and defines the spaces, protects and separates, defines the membership of a place to a community. The design for the Civic Center in the Island District was created just from a reflection on the value that the process of building a wall can have on citizens. In line with the participation process that led to the definition of the functional program proposes to realize a building according to the principles dell'autocostruzione assisted, transforming the act of realization of the Civic Center in a final stage of the same process that has defined contenuti.La the structure will be made ​​of wood (ecological, natural, easy to recycle), based on the principles of construction of the balloon frame and built by a specialist who will accompany subsequently citizens in the construction of infill walls. These will be made ​​of straw: lightweight, extremely economical and environmentally friendly, with excellent performance of thermal inertia and resistance ignifuga.L'autocostruzione assisted is a constructive process that works on the sense of community, of belonging and responsibility related to the creative act opera .A front of these reflections construction, the project of Civic Center is based on a principle of duality repeated that combine various aspects of architecture trying to maintain a certain synthesis of signs and linguaggio.Si starts from the value of open space: l 'building, with its volume defines two voids, double that bind to those areas of the center of the city. The first, towards the main road that leads to the heart of the island is a paved area, an entrance to the center, a place to meet and party. The second one is an empty space: an open amphitheater on the park, the perfect space for summer performances and simple moments of meeting. On the Piazza Civica opens the bar, is the giant chess board and you have direct access to office space and intended to associations and famiglie.Sull'anfiteatro opens a reading room, overlooking the auditorium interior, with direct access from the street and is the gym vertical. The two blocks of the volume define the relationship between the urban context, that of the district, the pedestrian streets, local markets and happenings of the citizens, and the natural, the park, the library of trees, quiet and protetto.Questa search of communion between the natural and urban worlds, also determines the linguistic research building, which on the one hand refers to the cityscapes of pitched roofs and industrial shed, the other joins the natural world to the choices of materials and cromatiche.I four main walls, which with their profile determines the final shape of the Civic Center, are defined according to the relationships established with the open spaces adiacenti.Il first wall, one in the South, working with the highway and the covered plaza: the the wall street opens, becomes the work plan or exposure, shelter and shading system, it becomes an ancillary service to an active use of the road, as the local markets and fairs, perhaps related to urban gardens in the lot near. It also becomes an opportunity to project the internal activities of the civic center to the public space, an open window on the activities of the citizens. The second wall is the one that closes the Municipal Court, made of straw by the citizens, is a wall poster, declaring the membership of the community center, can be opened to allow the kitchen and the bar directly link to The Square third wall becomes vertical at the gym, which adapts to the shape of the building and overlooks the courtyard dell'anfiteatro.Infine the last wall that contains the empty theater and closes the lot, with a lower profile than the others, is wings of a theater, but also an opening to the existing buildings and the trees, the real protagonists of the parco.Internamente identifies two types of spaces, the fixed and mobile ones. Those drives are designed for all those technical functions that have very specific needs: the bathrooms, the kitchen and the bar, placed in the middle portion of the building, which becomes a sort of "line" technique that simultaneously serves both flexible ali.Quelli are organized according to a system of furniture equipped walls. These walls can be made ​​to create spaces with multiple characteristics: small and intimate, to suit the needs of different users, for individual spaces, suitable for co-working, fun areas. The walls run on a system with stationary wheels or on rails recessed into the floor, while the plant systems run in the floor allowing you to not have wires in sight: in this way, users can modify the environment to suit your needs.
