NOI Techpark, the district of research and innovation (whose acronym stands for Nature Of Innovation) rises in Bolzano, located in the former Alumix area, evidence of the industrial archeology of the 1930s.
The project is the result of a competition won by Chapman Taylor Milan and studio Claudio Lucchin e architetti associati Angelo Rinaldo Daniela Varnier.
The film shows how the two historic buildings of rationalist architecture inspired by the Bauhaus movement have been integrated with a third building, built from scratch and called the Black Monolith. While the two rationalist buildings were energy production sites, the new building today resets this production actually compensating it through the use of the most advanced technologies that have led NOI Techpark to obtain the LEED ND v4 certification: Plan GOLD.
The ND v4 classification extends the evaluation to the whole district subject of the intervention and assesses the projects for their sustainability from the construction materials that had been used to the quality of life in the area.
