Arch2O has received this project from our readers in order to participate in the Students week 9 event. In students week 10, STUDENTS will have the chance to create thier own profile pages in arch2o.com For more details please CLICK HERE
During the last decades convergence of design, engineering and architectural technologies has been experiencing a new practical approach in experimental architecture. In an era where utopia no longer inhabits the city nor its spectacular metaphor the exception can be recognizable in the production of structure dresses up as imaginary.
«Luce» is a proposal for an avant-garde theater designed as a temporal, modular, adaptable venue where the utopia become reflected in the structure’s ephemeral apparition and transience presence. In «Luce»’s theater the architecture serves as a possible background, a setting, a building that can be calculated and transformed into the measurements and concrete materials of an often elusive feeling, where the architecture provides a stage for life within public spaces acting as backdrops for life’s experiences and where the theater acts a metaphor for his beliefs. A productive structure where architecture end and the world of the imagination began. The characterizing concept behind «Luce» theatre had been to explore the emotive power of a space, it’s ability to aid storytelling and the possibility of be manipulated to achieve a dramatic purpose, within solid base principles and new experimental formal expression and technological performance.
It is imagined to be built in accordance with principle of sustainability and respect for the environment, and constitute by low resource materials but in accordance with “tradition of the new”. The goals of the project are indeed at the same time to produce a performance venue of provocative and highly refined designs and to experience the significance of a new technology and it’s implications for architectural practice. The significant emphasis on the structuring logic of tectonics has result in an innovative structural approach. Since today we are experiencing a significant new wave of design in architecture, the project’s important shift has been fully defined as a highly dynamic synthesis of emerging principles of spatial, structural and material ordering integrated through the application of materialization and fabrication technologies. For these reason «Luce» has been a project for a theatre focusing in architectural design as well as highly technical in focus.
