New video: A city in transformation

On Feb. 23 the Association of Trentino Architects held at Progetto Manifattura to discuss the concept of urban renewal. Headlining the event was the renowned architect Kengo Kuma, who presented the preliminary project for the new light manufacturing area that uses wood for the structure as well as other locally sorced materials. Rovereto Mayor Andrea Miorandi discussed his views on this and similar projects that will modernize significant parts of the city over the next several years. He expressed appreciation for the new Leno waterfront which will establish a new relationship between the city and its rivers.

The video (in Italian, except for Kuma who speak in English) provides an overview of the evening’s theme and the technologies that will make the new infrastructures eco-sustainable.
