New campus project “Ex Cirio” – Naples

The new university complex is designed to re-qualify the surrounding urban environment and trigger improvements in the architectural and social context.
Buildings along the perimeter of the partially rebuilt area of ​​urban historic insulations are instead articulated inwardly into an integrated open space system and volumes organized to provide ample circulation and visual permeability. The space sequence gradually introduces the user to the large public park in the central part of the area, where the buildings are articulated to create a sequence of passages, squares, terraces and porches connected to each other: the bodies act as a backdrop on which the natural elements of the park or frames are removed, within which the urban fabric is framed. The succession of spaces with different dimensions enriches the experience of those who travel through the new university campus and gives new spaces to students and the city.
