A district of southern Italy is presently calling for maintain able ideas on how to refurbish or reuse a stretch of the Salerno-Reggio Calabria highway, situated between Sicily and Bagnara, with a focus on implementing a mend able energy into the infrastructure. The old highway will be decommissioned and a new highway is put to be built nearby. Currently the adjudicators is still in consideration and a winner has yet to be decided for the Solar Park South, but being the sleuths that we are, we came across this attractive offer for a parasitic city set to get root on the basics of the highway’s bridges. Although the proposal by Ja Studio Inc called ‘Slow Uprising’ doesn’t actually meet the necessities of the competition, we still love the idea of buildings developing on a bridge.
Ja Studio Inc viewed the original highway as a huge project that distanced the inhabitants from nature. But now that the old project is being decommissioned, it gives a chance to reconnect the nearby towns with the valleys and other landscape of the area. Their proposal calls for a gentle ramping platform that attach the top of the bridge to the bottom of the valley level, with houses and shops built on the bridge to form a new city grounded in the basis of the old project.
Ja Studio Inc’s Slow Uprising doesn’t meet the rules of the Solar Park South struggle, as nothing about their project calls for the use of renewable energy, but given the reuse of an enormous piece of infrastructure in their project, they wanted to send in their thought anyway. As Ja Studio partner Behnaz Assadi said, “Our response was not along the requirements of the competition brief, however we sent it for jury review and publication, since we thought it would give a different perspective on the story of the decommissioned highway.” Slow Uprising is also an exploration of a slower paced life, contrasting the fast, chaotic projection the new highway would eventually give way to.
