FRUC

Designing the Future of Retailing in Urban Cities
X Cycle

The project obtained on April 2015 the official Patronage of the Municipality of Torino

Principal Academic Tutor: Giulio Zotteri
Other Academic Tutors: Luigi Buzzacchi, Valeria Iannilli, Francesca Montagna, Alessandro Perego
ASP Students: Andrea Benedetti, Birhanu Shanko Dura, Francesca Pagnanelli, Cristiana Maria Passarella, Gabriele Roncoroni, Davide Trimarchi

Description of the project
In the last decade retailing in Europe went through dramatic changes. First of all, the economic crisis led to the reduction of the disposable income. Secondly, the growing competition of shopping centre, suburban malls and internet retailers strongly affected the small and independent retailers’ performances. This trend has a strong impact on our cities since independent retailers are essential to attract people in the centre of our cities and to keep them vibrant.
The FRUC Project, supported by the Municipality of Turin and the local union of retailers (Confcommercio – ASCOM Torino), had the objective to develop an innovative solution to help local stores in Turin incrementing their flow of visitors and potential buyers.
Considering that Turin is visited by 2 millions tourists every year, FRUC team decided to focus on this target to exploit their potential as buyers in the stores of the City. The team designed a platform, called “Torino Pass”, which is offering unique experiences to the tourists through customized visit paths. These routes allow tourists to discover both touristic attractions and local stores, which are well-known for their excellence. They are built by taking into account the specific desires, interests and constraints each tourist has.
Torino Pass collaborates with hotels (Federalberghi), to promote both the service and the adherent retailers, and with YAMGU, a start up providing the app on which the service can be exploited.

GoAAL

Going towards solutions for Ambient Assisted Living
IX Cycle

Winner for the category “Best APP project to be realized” at the UpperApp Festival

Principal Academic Tutor: Fabio Salice
Other Academic Tutors: Sara Comai, Fulvio Corno, Giorgio Ferraresi
ASP Students: Juan Camilo Avendaño Diaz, Gianmarco Ciorra, Giacomo Cuspidi, Federica Giraudi, Andrea Mortera, Riccardo Musetti, Lidia Palladino, Gelila Seifu, Ludovica Zengiaro

Description of the project
The aim of the GoAAL project is to increase the degree of independent living of disabled persons, in particular with motor impairments. The concept of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) implies the use of innovative ICT-based products, services and systems for disabled people to increase the quality of life and the social inclusion, with the advantage of reducing the costs of health and social care.
From the cooperation with Niguarda Spinal Unit and the observation of patients while interacting with the environment, it was realized that the elevators accessibility was a critical issue in this facility. Therefore, it was decided to propose a solution in order to improve the access to lifts even for quadriplegics, who face the hardest physical limitations. The most suitable solution consisted of a vocal-controlled elevator system, implemented through a smartphone/tablet application that was named Lift Me App.

Playing Architecture – Smart Buildings for Smart Cities
IX Cycle

Selected for the Asian-Eu Science and Technology Days in Paris
Winner in the category “Project” at the SIE, Exibition of Innovative Building Systems in Bologna

Principal Academic Tutor: Alessandro Bianchi
Other Academic Tutors: Gian Luca Brunetti, Andrea Pirollo
ASP Students: Federico Minoli, Marina Canala, Claudia Tesei, Matteo Novarino, Gianluigi Ferrari, Rachel Island

Description of the project
Smart buildings are the basic cells of the smart cities, they are the architectures with high technological level that allows cities to evolve with a clever and connected infrastructural grid. This is the concept that moved the team to prototype a public building, a clinic or a school to give basic health care and education in a quartet.
The building produces the energy to satisfy its own requirements using rotating photovoltaic panels and thanks to the yearly insolation trend has a surplus for the great part of the year. In the future this could be a direction to reduce the environmental impact and the pollution of big regional power plants, through a grid of small production unit able to provide energy in capillary way with a low impact also for the esthetic point of view. Prefabrication process, structural packaging, and local materials are the other strengths of the project.

SustHealth

Sustainable High Quality Healthcare
VII Cycle

Published by Springer with an introduction written by Gail Vittori (Co-Director of the Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems): Improving Sustainability During Hospital Design and Operation

Principal Academic Tutor: Stefano Capolongo
Other Academic Tutors: Marta Bottero, Emilio Pizzi, Carlo Signorelli, Cesare Stevan
ASP Students: Andrea Bellagarda, Matteo Birocchi, Elisa Cavagliato, Arlind Dervishaj, Michela Di Noia, Giulia Gherardi, Marco Gola, Francesco Mantua, Slobodan Miljatovic, Maria Hristova Nickolova, Marco Rostagno, Salvatore Speranza, Lia Volpatti

Description of the project
The study of the current conditions of healthcare structures, using always scientific method, combined with a multidisciplinary approach and creativity, has led the project teams to the development of two easy-to-use, innovative, versatile and almost universal tools, to enable hospitals constructors and managers to promote sustainability and therefore Health protection. Both the proposed evaluation systems have been tested in two real hospitals, demonstrating their effectiveness and usefulness, even beyond expectations, raising strong agreement to the presented sustainable solutions, among all the stakeholders involved.
