Concorso Internazionale online “Green Boulevards” – Viali alberati del terzo millennio. Organizzato dal’ Istituto Nazionale di Architettura (IN/ARCH) e NIB New Italian Blood, iniziativa nell’ambito del programma del Padiglione Italia durante la XIII Mostra Internazionale di Architettura della BIENNALE DI VENEZIA.


The geodetic steel grid’s arched frame – equipped for the use of clean energy technology like CGIS solar panels and small wind turbines – also has noise protection panels and with the addition of mass planting and swaths of ground cover the site is reconnected to the surrounding landscape.
This approach acts as a catalyst for an exemplary integration of energy production with landscape.
The width of the highway, the geodetic frame can be up to eight meters high with a variable length based on need.
The overall estimate, from opening the construction site to laying the foundations – including the small wind turbines and CGIS solar panels – is 1.2 million euro x 100 linear meters of highway. The additional cost in case the geodetic frame needs to sustain landforms is 600 thousand x 100 linear meters.
This is a long term investment suitable for pension funds and the like.
A geodetic structure in Corten steel with low maintenance costs.
Small wind turbines producing 27,000 Kw/year for every 100 meters of highway.
Polycarbonate alveolar panels with CGIS photovoltaic film – modular copper indium gallium diselenide – even towards north – producing 150/200,000.00 Kw/year per 100 meters of highway.
Possible benefits and economic advantages for the community include:
Producing clean energy with low environmental impact and without occupying land area
Enhancing the landscape
Lowering noise and particulate matter air pollution
Creating and reinforcing existing territorial ecosystems
Bike paths connecting to the busiest transport hubs with and with a series of destination points to dedicated to local specialties, offering traditional delicacies to try and buy.
Progetto in collaborazione con lo studio di Architettura e Paesaggio Anselmi Attiani e con l’arch. Dario Aureli.
