Topic _ Blue Economy: The Blue Economy began as a project to find the best nature-inspired technologies that could affect the economies of the world, while sustainably providing basic human needs - potable water, food, jobs, and habitable shelter.

City _ Porto Torres: The importance of this place is its position: it is situated on the northern Sardinia, on the railroad Sassari-Cagliari, nearly two airports (Fertilia and Olbia) and with an harbor well connected to the rest of the Europe.
Predictions: We think the only one possible future for Porto Torres is the green industry: we want to create an industrial and technologic city in the old and empty industrial site that can make itself the energy it needs, in a sustainable way.
Step of our project:
Problems: The main problem is the pollution of soil and air
vision 2050 - Porto Torres - Blue Economy:
Is important to make a mental change because we have already the resources and ideas to make our future better.
Campus_ I want to set a campus in the area where workers and researches can live and stay; I focused my attention on common areas and, in particular, on a tipology that I developed. I studied a common language that connects the different areas of the campus.
Start-Up Offices_ The Start-up companies are offices for activities that are at the beginning. We are talking about enterpreneurs, web designers, web developers and other involved in the ground level of a new high tech venture. Using four existing silos, these offices are rotated and oriented to create maximum visual connections between offices and campus: in other words, the organic organization of these maximizes daylight, wind and view.
RnD Facilities_ The facilities for research and development, are designed as zero-impact buildings. These buildings are self-feeding on energy, water and ventilation. This is made possible by two types of technologies: 1. solar panels combined with a rainwater collection system; this structure plays a dual role: to heat water for consumption, and to cool the surface of the panels for greater efficiency. 2. a system of glass tubes containing algae that purify the air by CO2 and produce hydrogen under certain conditions. This hydrogen is used to produce energy, water and heat.
Edutainment Center_ My tipology works on the education and entertainment: about the first, I relized activities for children through scientific games and a pavillion that reproduces and explain how the campus work. About the second, I relized a mess, a bar and a lounge area.
Algae Farming_ I relized an algae-farm for the production of electricity from the process of decomposition of algae. With my project I would to combine an industrial part with some public: I worked on the energy production (and related healing waters and CO2 disposal) and on the installation of services.
