Via Demetrio Martinelli 1, Bologna, Italy
Negrini Lindvall Architettura, Italian-Swedish office based in Bologna, was established in the end of 2017 by architects L. Negrini and S. Lindvall. They collaborate with Politecnico in Milan as assistant professors for various Master Courses and were invited to exhibit their projects at the 2018 Fuorisalone. They won first prize in the competition “Itabashi calls Bologna”. The project is a Children's Book Pavilion and recalls Bologna’s main traits and will be built in Tokyo by 2021.

A Future for Ruined Cities:


a conceptual counter model reestablishing life through functions

A Future for Ruined Cities:


a conceptual counter model reestablishing life through functions
It is a future architecture, away from hasty cities, rocked by a special silence of old, cracked stone buildings.

Type of project
  • Practical problems

This project, using the ruined town of Craco as an example, opens future possibilities and qualities that today are locked inside ruined cities of the past. It is explained in a conceptual way through a series of images made to spur the imagination and simplify the vision of newborn activity in dead places. The functions imagined to be injected in these places are those that make people return; creating a constant flow, and thus new life. Restructured public spaces and accesses facilitate social vibrance, regular workshops for students with accommodation and a layer of artistic culture in the shape of galleries, ateliers and small shops. This provides a base for the place with both settled and visiting people, that can be built upon.

These places serve a possibility of treating architecture in a playful way, cherishing its beautiful challenges and making them visible to the world instead of forgotten. Future architecture does not naturally mean it is new.
