Marghera Multi.Faces is the design of a relational infrastructural network designed to increase social inclusion, where diversity of people, of cultures and traditions are multiplied amplifying the richness of the social fabric. A project to provide accommodation to the new, transforming an historically exclusive place to a platform, model of integration and social cohesion through densification, and continuous re-contamination of different uses, activities, community spaces of sharing and collaboration. An open and dynamic program to regenerate an abandoned area related to a strong industrial past, to reconnect it to a contemporary production logic, based on the centrality of human resources, knowledge and widespread creativity, hyper-connected and socially networked.
The project corresponds to an hyper-relational concept of city built on shared community spaces, similar in density to the fabric of historic city centers, where it reaches its maximum concentration of exchanges and crossings in the presence of a dense but passable fabric. The power of new technology must correspond to a strengthening of networks of relationships in the direction of their opening. The web and social platforms have shown us the incredible creative and innovative potential value of collaboration and participation. Now, knowing the experiences of these virtual places, it is necessary back to rethink the physical places, the material infrastructure of our city, starting from those physical spaces, collective and public, within the cognitive surplus is realized and creativity and productivity increase. For this reason the concept of the project is to generate highly relational spaces capable of allowing a greater degree of inclusion, integration and social cohesion. Our attention is then focused on those types of spaces which have this social potential intrinsic, hybrids places generally limited and compressed by the private spaces. Dynamic and fluid spaces, informal, integrated and open, unexpected places, unstable and chaotic, places of a weak and diffuse modernity as a counterbalance to enclosed, rigid, linear spaces of the past.
