Non-Extractive Architecture | Case Study

Renovation of a dilapidated pigsty built in 1780 to a showrom: Naumann Architektur (2003)
With an average density of about 200 inhabitants per km2, Italy is among the most densely populated countries in the European Union, with a total of 11 million buildings according to the 14th census updated to 2001; of these, 60%, equal to about 7 million, was built before 1971. The exploration of the technique of parasitic architectures as a means of recovering old buildings allows to solve the problems of land use and to extend the service life of buildings that have otherwise exhausted - or will soon exhaust - their function.
