If I say city:
to your mind?
If I say city survey
When someone tells me the word “city”, I don’t think about one place only. A lot of cities come to my mind and they’re all different
from one another.
A city is the people.
The city is a paradox, lots of people who live close to each other yet they don’t know one another.
A place where it’s easy to feel like strangers.
City is the speed of connections, the distress that spreads inside of me when I see my reflection on the window of a shop closed to the public. The loneliness of my shadow on a green varnished door.
A city is a continuous flow of energy, a continuous exchange
of ideas, opinions, considerations. It’s a hybrid of tradition
and innovation, a hybrid of cultures and ethnicities.
A city is a cyclopic garden, a forest,
and as such it invokes bewilderment.
We are thousands and thousands. Despite this we lower our heads to watch the latest notification. We are used to running,
we never stop, we cannot waste time.
My city is blue and yellow during nighttime,
like the moon with its sky.

As a teaching activity, the study of the SMOG-FREE-TOWER in Rotterdam led the students of class 3G to make their own project proposal. To deal with the topic of urban architecture, the Dutch prototype measures, 7X3.5 m, were given only to draw ideas of shape. Models were made in the school lab using different materials on a 1:50 scale.
