Urban Lightscape - international ideas competition
Участникам предлагается разработать концепцию ландшафтного светодизайна для римского района EUR. Это место – своеобразный музей под открытым небом, в котором представлены образцы архитектуры 1930-х годов. В своих проектах конкурсантам необходимо соединить историю и современность, обеспечить использование устойчивых технологий, сохранить и подчеркнуть уникальный облик района.
AIDI, The Italian Lighting Association – henceforth defined as “Competition Promoter” - in collaboration with APIL, PLDC, Master’s in Lighting Design “Sapienza” and The Roma Tre University, would like to announce the opening of an international lighting ideas contest on an urban scale. This contest, promoted by the National Council of Italian Architects, Planners, Landscapers and Curators along with the Order of Architects of Rome and its Provinces, will be anonymous and consist of a single stage: designing a concept for a lighting system to be used in Rome’s district of EUR, specifically in the area denominated “Pentagon”.
The EUR district is a very peculiar area. It was built for the 1942 World’s Fair which, due to the war, never actually took place. Today it represents an outdoor museum of 1930s architecture, to which new structures and services have been added which underline its potential role as the city’s «convention platform».
The lighting systems designed in this project must encompass public, artistic and environmental domains, meeting the needs of this historic city and establishing links between all the elements that make up this complex system. They must also pay particular attention to the relationship between the city’s ancient and modern aspects in a contemporary urban dimension.
The lighting systems should preferably use ICT (information e telecommunications) technologies and be designed from a “smart”, systemic and intelligent viewpoint so as to make the district sustainable both in terms of energy/environment, through energy-saving choices and technologies, and in terms of functionality, by ensuring quality urban services which meet the users’ needs. These choices must improve the quality of life of Rome’s citizens by facilitating the usability and productivity of the new services.
