Settimo Torinese, Italy


Master plan + Residential type

Politecnico di Torino

The main goal of the project is to provide a university campus to the city; with buildings in five different areas, each with uses intended for students, teachers, and university administrators; and also provide Settimo Torinese public spaces for common citizens. Steel shipping containers were used as the structure of the new buildings, they are a strong and sturdy structure, have a relatively low cost, and are also ecological; this type of structure was chosen as the project intended to be temporary. A bike path connects with all the areas of the university and also the main points of the city. Then was developed the residential area for students.
