Cesena Apartments
This is a building for 28 residential units, the first phase of a intervention which expects the realization of two buildings. The aim of the project was to revitalize a dismissed industrial area with a residential building. The challenge was to work within the parameters of good design and a low budget to provide the city with quality architecture while respecting the commercial space requirements of the client. The resulting project provides a substantial architectural impact with respect to the smaller buildings of thearea that are characterized by a broad range of building styles.

The Renzo Piano Foundation selected the project Domus Technica: the new Immmergas Center for Advanced Training by Iotti + Pavarani Architetti as the winner of the first edition of the prize (2011), promoted by the Italian Association of Architecture and Criticism (AIAC) and chaired by Luigi Prestinenza Puglisi, which is awarded to up-and-coming architects under 40. Approximately seventy applications from all over Italy were examined, and evaluated by a single judge, who is one of the greatest professionals in the field: Renzo Piano.

Cesena Housing
Cleanliness and compactness of the prospects are the aims always pursued and happily reached through the use of a simple and direct language, particularly evident in the formulation of the principal prospects: ample balconies extend themselves along the front whole length, but an single graphic sign coordinates the complexity of the system-prospect of the openings, synthesizing the single elements in an unique dominant motive, in the identification profile of the whole architectural body.

Hydroelectric Station, north east Italy

Hydroelectric Power Station Winnebach
The hydroelectric power station is located near Winnebach brook in Dörfl (municipal territory of Vintl), at 800 m. above sea level. It’s partly built into the slope, since the building area was extremely reduced. The project consists in a simple but polygonal volume, which is formally adapted to the landscape and the local conditions. The station is conceived as an artificial rock quarried out of the slope. This sensation is underlined by a very reduced use of materials (concrete, glass and steel) in their rougher form, as well as by the “veins” which cross the volume.

Pescara Church Building, eastern Italy

Italian Church Building
The parish complex of S. Giovanni Battista and S. Benedetto Abate, realized by Angelo Campo’s project on Colle di Mezzo, whose name comes from its position on the hill strip between Colle Innamorati and Colle Marino in Pescara, must be understood with the awareness of this scenery: which means that we must judge whether it is capable of taking part in a perspective of transformation and new urban quality or if it is not. The complex is articulated in various levels which adapt to the morphology of strongly sloping ground by means of a terracing system.

Multifunctional Center, northeast Italy

Multifunctional Center in Sappada
The building is part of the eastern edge of the village Bach, in the the ancient village of Sappada. On one hand the ratio measured with the scale of the village, on the other the relationship with the valley and mountain ranges, powerful scenery of the intervention. The new complex is a system composed of three similar architectures generated by the same type, the same form, three contemporary and silent architecture, sitting on the topography in a natural way.
