Abandoned Bridge In Italy Transformed Into A Futuristic Vacation Resort

Abandoned Bridge In Italy Transformed Into A Futuristic Vacation Resort | highline | Scoop.it

Rather than demolishing the abandoned viaduct in Salerno-Reggio Calabria, Italy, the Solar Park South ran an international competition to award the best design that transforms the bridge into a functional structure. One of the entries turns the old highway into a vertical holiday complex that uses as little construction material as possible.

The team consists of Samuel Nageotte, OFF architecture, and PR architect. They envisioned the area to be the perfect vacation spot as it’s surrounded by mountains and overlooks the sea. The concept structure uses a “pile and deck” technique where residential and commercial spaces can be stacked on top of each other. Due to the proximity of Mt. Etna, the whole complex could also be geothermally powered.

Paris' Elevated Park Predates NYC's High Line by Nearly 20 Years

Paris' Elevated Park Predates NYC's High Line by Nearly 20 Years | highline | Scoop.it
New York City's High Line Park is remarkable, but not quite as original as many think: Parisians have been enjoying strolls along an elevated park in the heart of the city for nearly 20 years. The Promenade Plantée, or Coulée Verte, runs 4.5km (2.8 mi) through Paris' 12th arrondissement.

The elevated Viaduct des Arts, which supported the Vincennes Railway from 1859 to 1969, was bought by the City as part of a general renovation of the area in 1986. Landscape architect Jacques Vergely and architect Philippe Mathieux were commissioned to design the park, which opened in 1993. At the same time, the arcades under the viaduct were converted into spaces for art galleries and artisan workshops.

An interview with Charles Waldheim: Landscape Urbanism Now

An interview with Charles Waldheim: Landscape Urbanism Now | highline | Scoop.it

“With the birth of these new technologies and these new economic processes, one sees the birth of a sort of thinking about space that is no longer modeled on the police state of urbanization of the territory, but that extends far beyond the limits of urbanism and architecture… It was not architects, but engineers and builders of bridges, road, viaducts, railways, as well as the polytechnicians—those are the people who thought space… the technicians or engineers of the three great variables—territory, communication and speed.”

—Michel Foucault, “Space, Knowledge, and Power”

Visions of Sixth Street - plans for a new, pedestrian-friendly bridge in Los Angeles

Visions of Sixth Street - plans for a new, pedestrian-friendly bridge in Los Angeles | highline | Scoop.it

Three finalists present plans for major new bridge in Los Angeles:

The groups—headed by HNTB, AECOM, and Parsons Brinckerhoff— have all been shortlisted to create the city’s new Sixth Street Viaduct. Their vivid public presentations were the first glimpse of what will likely be LA’s next major icon.

The original 3,500-foot-long structure, a famous rounded Art Deco span designed in 1932, has been deemed unsalvageable due to irreversible decay, and in April the city’s Bureau of Engineering called for a competition to design a new, $400 million, cable stayed structure.

Following the city’s lead, all three teams presented plans that not only showcased memorable forms, but embraced people-friendly designs, including pedestrian paths, parks, and connections to the river below. The push reveals Los Angeles’s focus on attracting people and talent through increased livability. Such moves are a welcome, if uphill battle considering that so much of the city has been designed for cars, not people...
