«What the ...... should I do with robots! This is what I like, music, garden, a nice architecture»

This funny quote an old Roman women said visiting us, summarizes the St Horto effect at the Maker Faire Rome. St Horto saw the light at Palazzo delle Esposizioni Eur this October from 3 to 6 with over 30.ooo people that visited the venue. People appreciated the strong idea behind St Horto creating a perfect sinergy between architecture, nature, music and social technologies. Thanks to a musical software and Arduino, it creates in real time a musical composition starting from a single tune that will be worked out automatically according to homothetic principles".

Felice Allievi collaborate to develope the new published technical book "Cataclismi e Ricostruzione: Scienza e Tecnica" (Cataclysms and Reconstruction: Science and Technology) written by Paolo Allievi. The book is divided into two parts, in the first "Science" are analyzed some large environmental impact of natural phenomena such as tsunamis, hurricanes, and the fall of meteorites. In the second "Technology" are analyzed some technological processes of strong economic and social impact such as the electric Blackout, large infrastructures and electromagnetic pollution. 


DOF Engineers participates with Multiconsult and WSP at the 6th International Symposium on Strait Crossings. Birger Opgård (Multiconsult) presented a paper about a chained floating bridge concept co-written by Felice Allievi


The City of Gothenburg has pre-qualified DOF Engineers together with WSP and Snøhetta Architects as one of five teams to participate in the competition for the design of a new bridge over the Göta River, Gothenburg’s most important transport link across the river. Other finalists are companies such as Zaha Hadid, Dissing, Leonhardt and Wilkinson Eyre. The aim of the competition brief is to design a new connection that will replace the existing bridge across the river for bus and tram traffic and for pedestrians, bicycles and cars. The construction of the new connection will be ambitious with regard to design and sustainable development and will form part of an urban route between Gothenburg Central Station and the Backaplan area.


Following DOF researches on new bridge’s typologies, Felice Allievi has been supervising the Master Thesis written by Brion L. M. Caguiat and entitled “Design and analysis of chained floating bridge”. The Thesis has been developed under the responsibility of Professor Arne Aalberg from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
