WINNER OF Pollution 2019: A COMMON LINE FOR THE RECONSTRUCTION

Lorenzo Abate - Italy


Project Description:

In the thesis I developed a project within the Syrian context in a post-war vision (2011) developing a model for a replicable ecological reconstruction in the different agricultural territories. Water, in this context, is not only necessary for the livelihood economy, but vital for the anthropic growth of the morphology of urban/rural agglomerations.

In the Western Gherban village in the Al-Hasaka region, the majority of farmers before the war mainly exploited storm precipitation. Subsequently they were constructed in a precarious way and with obsolete technologies the catchment areas of the water extracted in turn from the subsoil using repeatedly pumping machines to diesel.The first fundamental action of the project: construction of a wall of infrastructure able to support the first water and energy needs. Subsequently, a building program of progressive typological and morphological implementation gives rise to an urban action with a compact shape and no longer reduced and uncontrolled in the surrounding productive landscape.

Inside the water flows in diversified channels for the various types of uses (drinking and not)then is recovered and treated with the process of phyto-purification and finally conveyed in drip irrigation systems to the agricultural fields. The project strategy aims to represent a common line for the whole territory with the provision of a system completed by individual/collective photovoltaic systems and the exploitation of residues of agricultural processing and as fuel for small biogas plants. The outcome of the project would thus represent a community where the modern building-planning tool would be manipulated“by individuals and the community as a whole, thus generating from personal autonomy a collective social efficiency.

Excerpt from the motivations of the Jury:



The “Common Line for the Reconstruction” project demonstrates a comprehensive reflection over the impact brought about by war and destruction in a fragile agricultural territory. An understanding of the environmental challenges that the area is facing drive architectural design, typological studies and urban morphology towards the regenerative process of the area. The wall of infrastructure acts as a water device, as a backbone for progressive urban growth, and as a metaphor of the new life that it will contribute to generate. Although addressing a site specific solution, the project promotes a replicable and scalable solution for other territories affected by water scarcity and lack of water distribution network, demonstrating a rewarding balance of innovation, environmental awareness and architectural quality.
