Title

Ideas competition, Riqualificazione cava di San Carlo [Redevelopment San Carlo quarry], San Vincenzo, Livorno, Italy (1988)

1988

Level of archival description

Project

Extent and Medium

  • 30 drawings
  • 1 model
  • 1 textual record

Scope and Content

Project series comprises material related to a design entry for a 1988 competition on the environmental redevelopment of the San Carlo quarry in the comune of Castelnuovo Berardenga near Siena, Italy. Poli dates this project as 1988, though most of the material is undated (only 2 drawings are dated 1988). However, the project description text includes a bibliography making reference to 1991 publications, though it is possible that this document was created later than the drawings.

Project material includes numerous drawings and collages, some which are overlayed with wax, one which features a metal object, and some drawn directly onto topographical maps. Project material also includes a model, a photomontage featuring images of the quarry site and geological strata, and a typed project description. Parts of the text in the project description also appear on some of the drawings. Many of the drawings feature a circular design that is repeated throughout the drawing material in this series. Poli's proposal for the redevelopment seemed to involve the addition of trees to the area and the development of a passageway. One of Poli's drawings makes reference to the earth moon highway featured in an earlier project, Interplanetary Architecture (see AP148.S1.1970.PR02).
