Construction of the last lot (modules A1 and A2) of the new buildings of the Federico II University of Naples. With an engineering marvel, the new buildings will fit between the existing ones, connecting to them to complete the new university campus.
As part of an overall urban redevelopment of the San Giovanni a Teduccio area, the project for the new university facilities is the focal point for the renovation of the former industrial area.
The architectural layout of the lot conforms to the overall design of the urban voids, as a large open space with a public character that promotes physical and visual permeability.
At the same time, the “street curtain” configuration re-establishes a connection with established urban traditions. From an engineering point of view, the project addresses the difficulties of interfacing physically independent building structures and a strongly interconnected system network between the buildings.
Being the last part of the university complex, the construction of the last modules will be highly complex, and will be solved by breaking up into segments and advanced phasing.
From the point of view of environmental sustainability, a complex system-building has been developed which is characterised by maximum energy efficiency and, consequently, minimum operating costs.
