Paolo Marone - Andrea Narra | POSSIBLE GREEN ECONOMY OF THE STONE INDUSTRY - “STONE WASTE RECYCLED IN PRODUCTIVE ACTIVITIES”

Possible and Realistic Solutions and Technologies. STONE INDUSTRY = WASTE ZERO - This presentation deals with pragmatic solutions for the fine stone waste recycling after processing (gang saws, polishing, cutting, profiling, etc.) and cycle of water treatment plants. The webinar will show possible ways to recycle the fine stone waste that after a specific treatment (pre-drying, drying, sieving and filtering) becomes “eco-filler” . The fine stone waste obtained by cuttings and polishings is a sludge: fine powder with variable humidity for the water absorption with dimensions generally from 1 to 400 micron and initial humidity between 25% to 18%. This “eco-filler” can be a high value material for many industrial uses. Credits: CFP/AIA-CES/RIBA-CPD - AIA-CES Session code: 14MDM

PALESTINE | Aau Anastas | Elias Anastas e Yousef Anastas | PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT: THE FLAT VAULT

The church was built in the 12th century by the Crusaders. Its architecture offers a complete example of what was the architecture of the Crusaders in Palestine; a combination of different architectural elements that they brought from abroad and local elements that they found in situ. The newly built at stone vault is an extension of the monastery’s shop. Architecturally, it consists of a juxtaposed volume addition. However, the strategy of integration in the site does not rely on the formal aspect of the architectural element but rather on the construction techniques: the new shop is thought as a stone structure.

14:00 - 14:30 Recorded

MEXICO | VGZ Arquitectura | Verónica González-Zavala | PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT: P29 HOUSE

The project was achieved by linking all the interior spaces with the exterior by gardens and terraces, allowing energy savings and natural light. The program is distributed in an L shape, creating a set of openings and transparencies that blur the interior-exterior limits.

14:30 - 15:00 Recorded

PORTUGAL | Studio Toggle | Rui Goncalves | PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT: HOUSE IN YAMOUK

The Yarmouk private villa volume is divided in the center of the plot into two identical units housing the independent quarters of each of the two families. A series of light wells and balconies throughout the house, along with a discreet garden space on the ground floor, focuses on the project’s main narrative of diffused natural lighting. The materiality of the interiors is driven by the hierarchy of the space, ranging from a dramatic music room finished in marble, to the almost Scandinavian simplicity of the upper levels that houses the bedrooms, pantry and the informal reading room. Subtle warm tones, achieved by a combination of silver travertine cladding with white oil finished ash parquet, set the mood for the ground floor living and dining areas.

15:00 - 15:00 Recorded

MEXICO | Esrawe Studio | Hector Esrawe | PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT: GRUPO ARCA SHOWROOM

A quarry is the evidence of man’s action on nature; a universe in which men unintentionally sculpt pleats and volumes that result in a strange and visually striking geology. An organic architecture created by the trace of the search for raw materials, which brings us back to the origin from which the raw materials come. The access through a small opening in the monolithic facade links the visitor with the central space of monumental character, the "arrival to the quarry", the Agora. It is the starting point to begin a new journey of museographic character, where the multiple exhibition halls - with materials of diverse characteristics– are articulated around the Agora, creating a dynamic and versatile experience.

15:30 - 16:00 Recorded

ITALY | Studio Contini | Marco Contini | PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT: CHURCH AND COMMUNITY CENTRE IN CASTEL DI LAMA

The church is the last building, in order of construction, of the parish centre designed by studio_continiarchitettura. The complex includes sporting and recreational facilities, spaces for education and meeting places, creating an urban system that promotes community life. The project is deeply rooted in its context, both through the disposition of its volumes and the use of local materials. The exterior of the church is characterised by its façade in slabs of travertine forming a filter that allows glimpsing inside the building. The magnificent artworks in travertine by Giuliano Giuliani, placed inside the church, spiritually define the places of the liturgy.

16:00 - 16:30 Recorded

ITALY | Studio Donizelli | Massimo Donizelli e Paolo Zaffaroni | PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT: VILLA LEA

The manor house is set in a rock wall that determines its shape. The access to the villa is located on the highest level where the large garage area is located and, by means of a panoramic lift or a large staircase in brushed alabaster travertine, you can reach the level of the living area. The lift arrives in a tunnel carved into the rock, from here you can reach the living area. The living room is divided into two rooms separated by a large glass door: the first room contains three sofas and a large dining table, the second is the island of the representative kitchen made of sintered stone and orobic arabesque marble. The orobic arabesque marble staircase and the lift connect the living area with the master suite, of about 150 square metres, consisting of a large bedroom with adjoining sitting room, a study, two dressing rooms and two bathrooms, one in brushed alabaster travertine and the other in black Tunisian marble.

17:00 - 17:30 Recorded

USA | Axis Mundi | John Beckmann | PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT: MINIMAL SURFACE TABLES E PHILOSOPHERS, PRESIDENTS AND TYRANTS

The term "minimal surface" is used because these surfaces originally arose as surfaces that minimized total surface area subject to some constraint. Physical models of area-minimizing minimal surfaces can be made by dipping a wire frame into a soap solution, forming a soap film, which is a minimal surface whose boundary is the wire frame. These designs are milled from a single piece of marble on a 9-Axis Robotic Machine. Plato, one of the earliest thinkers and writers about democracy, predicted that letting people govern themselves would eventually lead the masses to support the rule of tyrants.

17:30 - 18:00 Recorded

USA | Studio Hugo Mijares | Hugo Mijares | PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT: SOLAR ISLES DRIVE

This project is part of a personal exploration where different volumes and the void generated between them are the protagonist. The volume was proposed as a large white box that has been excavated, with different “cubes” of various materials (wood, white stucco, etc.) appearing within. The social area on the first level was turned with a dual purpose: First, to lay out the social area on the first level so that it overlooks not only the canal in the back of the house, but also the pool area and boardwalk. Second, to break the continuity of the orthogonal walls of nearby houses, generating a particular vantage point from the street leading to the canal.
