The Solar Park South International design competition awarded French firms OFF architecture , PR Architect and Samuel Nageotte for their entry called Verical Villages in Calabria, Italy. The competition played with the theme of a ‘Solar Highway’, re-using sections of the Salerno-Reggio Calabria highway soon to be decommissioned by the Italian Highways Authority. The redevelopment of the viaduct section of the Salerno-Reggio Calabria highway was carefully considered by the architects for each of its components in order to best integrate the project with the site’s potential. The fundamental question posed by the competition is that of the readaptation of such sites and the possibilities of atypical redevelopment socially, culturally and economically for the region.
Read on for more on this awarded competition entry after the break.
The exhibition will show ten of OMA’s Masterplanning commissions which are now either on-hold or discontinued: an urban regeneration project in White City, London, a project for the ‘Nuova Bovisa’ science city in Milan, and a selection of projects in Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
Conceived in the virtual space of the computer, and with no imminent prospect of realization, these projects remain virtual in every sense. By retroactively creating physical originals, this exhibition hopes to make the virtual tangible. Prints on canvas, paper or card show the imagery as if dug up from some dusty archive – history with a message for the future, looking back as a way of looking forward.
