Inside the Corriere Adriatico Ascoli edition, the project for the Materials Factory by Stefano Boeri Architetti is presented. The project involves the redevelopment of the existing Relluce plant complex, located in the municipality of Ascoli Piceno, with the prospect of transforming the space into a ‘factory of the future’: a place where research, energy production and recycling come together, while generating a hub for art and culture.
The project also envisages the construction of a renewable energy production field whose total surface area is estimated at 12,368 square metres, with the aim of implementing clean energy production in the area and establishing a true energy community, from which neighbouring municipalities and the entire community could benefit.
The Materials Factory presents itself as a unique example of its kind, combining a production phase with one of recovery and reuse of resources, all set in an architectural context aimed at sustainability, integration with art and minimal environmental impact. The project thus stands as an example of an integrated architectural approach, dialoguing with its context, multiplying the functions it hosts and aiming at a minimum consumption of resources, becoming to all intents and purposes a generator of culture and clean energy, a true productive ecosystem.
