SPACE TO CULTURE

Brief

YAC’s third competition offers participants a chance of practicing solid research in redesigning and rethinking a disused industrial park. Nowadays the growing digitalization of social and economic relationships is producing radical transformations in social conventions and systems. The first victims of such process are production sites and industrial facilities; the outcome is that lots of gargantuan empty boxes are nowadays waiting for re-functionalization and new purpose. Nute Partecipazioni ltd (www.nutepartecipazioni.com) deals with revamping and enhancing valuable but disused industrial buildings. 

Nute owns an exquisite building in Quarto Inferiore (Granarolo, Bologna)  which used to be an important factory. Due to market’s contractions and thanks to the building’s unique features, Nute’s CEO is currently aiming to radically transform the former 15.000 m2 industrial park into a space for leisure time, culture and arts. What kind of architecture could be proposed in order to host cultural and entertainment activities?This is the question YAC and Nute ask the designers, offering them the chance to rethink a disused industrial place and transform it in a lively space for culture, art and public relationships.
