Renzo Piano unveils design for new Genoa bridge following disaster

Renzo Piano's designs for a new bridge for Genoa
Italian architect Renzo Piano has designed a €202 million bridge for his hometown of Genoa, after the old bridge collapsed in a storm.

In a statement Piano said it was a "great honour" to design the motorway bridge, which he did for free out of a sense of "civic spirit".
Renders show a minimalist white beam bridge supported at regular intervals by tall piers.
"It will be a beautiful bridge"
"It will be a beautiful bridge," said the architect. "A very Genoese bridge. Simple but not trivial. A steel bridge, safe and durable. Because bridges do not have to collapse."

Piano offered to build the new Morandi overpass in the aftermath of the bridge disaster, which killed 43 people.

The Genoise architect has designed many significant buildings in his career, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, The Shard in London and the Whitney Museum in New York.



Mayor Marco Bucci has requested that Piano supervise the construction of the €202 million (£182 million) project, which will be undertaken by a trio of Italian construction companies: Salini Impregilo, Fincantieri and Italferr.
Old bridge collapsed in August
The original motorway bridge, which was built in the 1960s, collapsed during a storm on 14 August 2018.
One of the reinforced concrete towers disintegrated, taking over 200 metres of the road down with it. Cars plunged over the edge and survivors were trapped in their vehicles under heavy rubble for hours.

Prior to the disaster the bridge had required near-constant repair work, prompting one concrete construction specialist to call it "a failure of engineering".
Italy had been experiencing many major infrastructure issues during a time of economic turmoil. The Morandi tragedy was the fifth bridge collapse in as many years.
Up to 20 people are being investigated by the Italian authorities on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter related to the disaster.

Mexican studio Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos has completed a beach home on the island of Cozumel that brings vegetation indoors through openings in the ground floor.

Casa Cozumel takes its name from its location, which is known for its beaches and is a popular stop for cruise ships. The property encompasses 1,325 square metres, and boasts 38 metres of beach frontage on the Caribbean.

The home sits on an expansive property that is densely packed with vegetation, providing the residents total privacy.
"The project is based on the guiding concept of fully respecting the site and its existing vegetation," said Mexico City-based Sordo Madaleno in a project description. "[The] design reflects a clear unity between the contemporary language and natural surroundings."

To avoid disturbing the site, the architects located the home above a natural depression in the landscape. This allows existing plants to grow underneath the structure and integrate with some of the living spaces.

Visitors enter the L-shaped building from the north, through a set of textured wooden doors and into a lobby that acts as a focal point for circulation. From here, a bridge crosses over an area that is open to the ground below and filled with lush plants.

This walkway leads to the dining room, which features a lounge area and opens on two sides. The front side of this room faces an exterior terrace with the ocean beyond, while the back offers views of the forest.

This level also features a secondary living room, which includes a bar just off the entrance lobby. It faces the beach and provides access to the waterfront via an exterior deck.

В Тбилиси построят финансовый центр по проекту UNStudio

Центр планируют построить в живописном месте рядом с озером Лиси. Поэтому важно было спроектировать здание, которое идеально бы вписалось в живописный ландшафт и архитектурный образ Грузии.

Бюро UNStudio вдохновлялось историческими сооружениями страны: например, плоские крыши и разноуровневые конструкции позаимствовали в каменной деревне-крепости Шатили.

Архитекторы хотели создать гибкое, открытое пространство, которое будет отличаться от типичных финансовых сооружений, как правило, закрытых и строгих.

В новом центре расположатся не только штаб-квартира TBC Bank и инновационная лаборатория, но также и культурный центр для горожан с галереями, ресторанами, коворкингом и даже детским садом.
