ROUTS SYNTHESIS NANO NET


 

ROUTS SYNTHESIS NANO NET The main requests of the proposition are briefly summarized in the following points, GLOBALIZATION. Venice is globally known as a city of Architectural Masterpieces Patrimony. These masterpieces were built principally during the late Medieval and Renaissance period. The challenge of the proposition is the adoption of an innovative route that will connect these Historical masterpieces. TERRITORIAL ORGANIZATIONS.

The proposed cultural route is constructed by nanomaterial. It is incorporated in the city tissue. In this way it helps the city function during flood periods. The landmarks connection by the definition of a cultural route has a positive effect in global space organization on perception level. The proposed horizontal motions developed by the route function is composed by “Acqua Net”, “Acqua Route”, “Acqua Spot” ….HISTORY-PRESENT –FUTURE.

The proposed route makes a symbolic connection of the historical Architectural Masterpieces. The importance of the structure is most perceived during flood periods. The future nanomaterial will obtain the connection of historical buildings. ADAPTABILITY.

The morphological and mechanical characteristics of the proposed structure can be adapted efficiently in the city non-canonical pattern. The proposition can be modified or completely canceled without any effects on the background structures.  PARAMETRIC DESIGN.

The Plasticity of the Synthesis creates multivariate forms and morphological antithesis with the canonical facade patterns. ECOTECHNOLOGY. The proposed nanomaterial is ecofriendly due to its synthesis. Nanotechnology provides materials with very improved physical and mechanical characteristics. In this way we can avoid conventional materials which in many cases have negative effects on the environment and human health. NEW MATERIALS.

The use of a new material in the proposition stretches the antithesis between the built environments, composed by architectural patrimonies, and the proposed structure. This hydrophilic nanotechnology material can modify its morphological characteristics. In this way a horizontal route above the water surface is provided. SYMBIOSIS  ANTITHESIS. The Vertical Motions during flood periods are realized thanks to the Hydrophilic proposed  nanomaterial. This material modifies its geometry in correlation with the flood level and it eventually creates a surface above sea level.
