L'architettura italiana per la città cinese: Italian - download pdf or read online

By Aa.Vv.,Renato Capozzi,Francesco Menegatti,Dina Nencini,Federica Visconti

Sin dalla loro nascita, le Esposizioni Universali sono kingdom lo specchio della visione di progresso del sistema economico mondiale. In origine, story obiettivo veniva esplicitato attraverso rappresentazioni tese a celebrare l. a. capacità dell'ingegno umano nel superare ogni vincolo che l. a. natura gli poneva di fronte. L'Esposizione cinese è stata l. a. più straordinaria mai realizzata sull'urbanizzazione, e ha lanciato al mondo, Italia compresa, una sfida cruciale: quale modello di città si può immaginare in un prossimo futuro? L'Italia ha colto questa sfida interpretando un Padiglione che sa di "città del futuro", intitolato "La città dell'uomo", in cui l'uomo torna advert essere protagonista, dove il concetto di vivibilità suppose un ruolo predominante. Un edificio che ha utilizzato nuovi materiali eco-compatibili, rispettosi dell'ambiente, proiettati verso il futuro. Del resto, il tema stesso dell'Expo lanciava questa sfida. Un Padiglione che è subito assurto a simbolo del saper fare italiano rinnovando così nell'immaginario dei visitatori los angeles tradizione dell'architettura espressa dall'Italia. Ed è stata sicuramente l'architettura una delle chiavi di lettura privilegiate dove ricercare nuovi germogli di fiducia del futuro. Un futuro in grado di immaginare le nuove comunità, le higher towns e los angeles sua greater lifestyles in rapporto con il territorio e con il mondo. in step with questo abbiamo voluto dedicare un intero mese della partecipazione italiana all'Expo di Shanghai proprio all'architettura. Nel mese di settembre, architetti e studiosi internazionali si sono confrontati sulle sfide dell'eco-compatibilità e dell'eco-sostenibilità. Nello stesso mese abbiamo ospitato l. a. mostra "L'Architettura italiana according to l. a. Città cinese": un esempio concreto di quanto l'Italia possa dire e fare according to spostare più in là l'orizzonte di un futuro in cui l. a. ricerca di nuovi materiali ecosostenibili all'architettura, gioca un ruolo decisivo. Se qualcosa rimarrà di questa Expo dei list sarà anche l'immenso capitale umano e conoscitivo, che ha avuto modo di confrontarsi nel Padiglione italiano su temi attuali e urgenti, quali quelli ispirati dal tema generale dell'Expo, "Better urban, higher life". Il successo della nostra partecipazione sarà ancora più importante se anche grazie alle nostre proposte, l'idea di una città e di una vita migliore sarà più chiara e realizzabile. Credo che in nessun luogo al mondo oggi più che in Cina ci si stia ponendo il problema della necessità di progettare delle città armoniche. Città ideali studiate fin dal principio in step with l'uomo. Città che non smettono mai di sorprendere, mescolando da sempre con equilibrio economia, capolavori architettonici, benessere, gusto, rispetto ambientale. Una città 'tipo' che l'Italia, più di altri, è in grado di proporre con forza, perché è proprio il nostro Paese e il nostro passato il punto da cui cominciare a guardare according to trovare ispirazione. l. a. nostra architettura è in grado di fornire le risposte giuste e ringrazio according to questo gli architetti Franco Purini e Uberto Siola, curatori della mostra sull'architettura italiana in keeping with los angeles città cinese che è stata l'occasione in step with condividere idee e progetti con i nostri amici cinesi e a ways capire loro che quello cui mirano - una città più armonica è l. a. nostra città.
