The ENEL event, commissioned by Guido Stratta and assisted by Mauro Gatti, occurs in a symbolic place. Natural events, the 2016 earthquake, financial crises, the COVID-19 pandemic, have projected this community into the darkness of #fragility. Preci still bears, at a distance of five years, the evident signs of the last devastating earthquake. A dissolved, torn community: people forced to find shelter elsewhere, and Mayor Massimo Messi, who strives in an attempt to keep, what still remains, standing. Here, time seems to have stopped.
Integrated into the Apennine horizon, appears a “workplace”, the only one here, the Salpi prosciutto factory. The earthquake resistance, in this circumstance, is a synthesis of innovative design. The construction of the system incorporates sufficient #resilience to allow perfect functionality. The factory and the village look reciprocally at each other, in the expectation for one to finally be reunited with the other, recreating that sense of belonging that reconciles the social and economic impulse. In order to accomplish this, the community must continue to exist, must be strengthened and kept cohesive around its values, first of all #trust, a fundamental aspect that makes it possible to conjugate #tradition and innovative capacity.
TRANSEXPERIENCES, Enzo Eusebi‘s installation, therefore, acts here as a relational device. A transitory, procedural architectural creation that “operates” as a medium. The use of a transparent, translucent, reflective material, as well as creating a permeable, fluid space, contributes to the destruction of the aesthetic form. Moreover, everything becomes simultaneous in the idea of creating an open and relational space. The things “taken out” from the earthquake dwellings were used uniquely as silent witnesses informed of the facts. They recall our attention to a wounded territory that becomes a synecdoche of all the wounded territories of the world, whatever the cause would be. They talk not only about the victims but also about the perpetrators.

Hārena is the visionary creation of Enzo Eusebi who defines the city of San Benedetto del Tronto (Italy) as a new point of reference for the entire Italian Adriatic coast. The metaphysical key of the intervention is psycho-architecture which, through continuous visual references (reflections), focuses attention on the superficial dimension of contemporary society. The interior design project deliberately harmonizes “surfaces”, using clear cinematographic references (above all the iconic bar area of the Overlook Hotel in Shining) and references (including crime news) carved in pop memory. The space (three-dimensional) becomes a surface (two-dimensional) and therefore a “virtual place” (instagrammable).

The World Association of Agronomists (WAA) and CONAF aim to unify, coordinate and represent associations of agronomists around the world. Their pavilion, the Global Farm of the Future (Prize Contest Toward a Sustainable Expo2015), is aimed at businesses and professionals and outlines the role of the agronomist in sustaining the future, giving suggestions on how to satisfy world nutrition, through exhibitions, seminars, forums and other initiatives. The somewhat abstract-looking pavilion, which features hanging gardens and slanted green roofing, has been totally sustainably built from Italian wood and natural cork and was designed by architect Enzo Eusebi, the founder of NOTHING STUDIO. After the event has finished, the pavilion will become a touring exhibition which will travel around to teach the public about nutrition.

Respect for tradition and constant innovation, top quality standards combined with a keen sensibility for the natural environment, have always been key to Nothing Studio’s design philosophy. Their aesthetic is fully realized, even exalted, in the SAL.PI. project in Preci, in the province of Perugia. Sustainability, central to the design, is highlighted in facilities for water conservation and energy efficiency as well as the natural insulation and many other advantages provided by 7,000 square meters of green roofing.

The project for the Domestica Headquarters is designed to match diligently among the inhabited portions of Msida. A determined and defined body of stone attacked by a foreign body made of glass and steel: the native stone bears suffered the showroom at a local level; it though, with his incisive and innovative personality, dominates the new view of the city. The bold oblique façade is the point of the intervention force, that only with a gesture to underline the union or disagreement between couples dialectical fullness and emptiness, heaviness and lightness, transparency and opacity, and, above all, stability and instability. The objective of this work was to be able to monitor the project until the achievement of three fundamental aspects: the purity and simplicity of composition, together with the dialectical opposition of the masses, and complemented by an ever more urgent demand for sustainable performance of building. In addition to the greenhouse with his forced currents, in fact, there are a basement and a ventilated roof to take advantage of the cooling elements capacity of prevailing winds, conveniently calculated during the analysis.

The Kunlun Towers, located in the heart of Beijing, hold luxurious apartments enjoying panoramic views stretching from the diplomatic centre of the capital (landscaped in greenery) to the Forbidden City. Freely inspired by the Kunlun mountain range, China’s holy Mountain, the towers rise up to an overall height of 115 m and are built on one single solid four-storey base. The overall impression is of a compact mass covered with stone and cut through with glass grooves, as if to recreate a rocky wall full of crevices. The outside shell is covered with horizontal sheets of slate of varying thickness to evoke the stratified nature of mountains, the deep vertical glass incisions reflect the striking surrounding countryside, including the embassy’s neighbourhood, almost a sort of natural oasis within the dense urban fabric of Beijing. The basement holds various exclusive shops and service facilities serving the residences and acting as a spacious public hall leading through to the private apartments.
