LafargeHolcim Foundation Prize Winning Projects in Sustainable Construction

Project Summary

Alternative Economy City in the Ex-Slaughterhouse

The innovative proposal for the reuse of an abandoned facility – a former slaughterhouse – in Italy is merited for the effort to bring new life to a historical setting. Specifically noteworthy is the idea of site recycling, a measure that promises to generate new activities and connections within the city.

Considerable effort has been made to respond to communal needs while remaining sensitive to the existing context.
