Arxellence 2 Competition – Honorable Mention for Thessaloniki Wave (T-WAVE) project.
Interview with MAU ARCHITECTURE, F&M INGEGNERIA & MARSIGLILAB.
“This intervention proposal is a “project within a project” which implies a harmonious integration with the rest of the urban space of the city”.
“The intervention is conceived as a large urban regeneration project that favors a functional and social mix and welcomes many activities within it, in an accessible and self-sufficient district from the point of view of clean energy, water, and all urban public services”.
“Our proposal for the project to be designed as full spectrum energy efficient (with both active and passive building measures as well as the user behavioral) aiming for the LEED Gold and aspiring to be used as a benchmark in terms of flexibility, adaptability and energy efficiency for the high-rise developments in the whole region”
ENERGY FOREST – we integrate the landscaping into the overall energy efficient strategy with design techniques such as planting trees for the purpose of providing shade and reducing cooling costs.
URBAN LOTS – we provide ‘blank sheet’ areas, in the park as well as within the buildings, to be cultivated with plants or vegetables by the tenants further promoting contact with nature, home grown food and social interaction.
