Un nuovo approccio allo yacht design
Yacht layout - Interni e Sovrastrutture conferma l'interesse di giovani architetti, ingegneri e fashion designer verso il layout nautico, disciplina che necessita sempre di nuove idee, nuove soluzioni progettuali e un nuovo approccio alla materia. Questo approccio è inteso, non tanto dal punto di vista del metodo progettuale, quanto della competenza in nuove tecnologie, nuovi materiali e della conoscenza di nuovi mercati, che si avvicinano a questo settore con un bagaglio culturale e di esperienze completamente diverso da quello con cui siamo stati abituati a confrontarci sino advert oggi. All'interno del grasp il nostro approccio a queste nuove problematiche si è evoluto, puntando a perfezionare l. a. figura professionale dello yacht dressmaker e advert adeguarla alle richieste del mercato contemporaneo.
Un mercato che mai are available in questi anni più recenti è cambiato così rapidamente e si è adeguato alle nuove prospettive culturali e sociali sia dell'utente che del produttore, generando così nuove tipologie, nuovi modi di interpretare los angeles nautica e vivere l. a. permanenza a bordo.
Questi segnali, ora scaturiti dalla crisi economica, ora da un nuovo approccio culturale al vivere tra aria e acqua, stanno configurando nuovi interessanti profili di tipologie nautiche. Profili che segnalano una uniqueness presa di coscienza principalmente da parte degli armatori ma di conseguenza da parte anche di progettisti e costruttori illuminati, del fatto che l'oggetto barca può essere interpretato non più solo come simbolo della potenza economica e della capacità del dressmaker di stupire, ma anche come uno strumento in line with vivere il mare ed il pace libero in un modo più rilassato, meno pubblico e più privato, meno inquinante e più rispettoso dell'ambiente. Uno degli aspetti che caratterizzerà l'architettura navale è senza dubbio los angeles sostenibilità del progetto. Siamo ancora agli inizi ma il processo di rinnovamento è ormai iniziato. Fino a qualche anno fa sembrava impossibile che un settore del lusso come quello della nautica potesse avvicinarsi alla sostenibilità ed al risparmio energetico, oggi è diventata una realtà con cui si stanno confrontando armatori, progettisti e costruttori così come accade in molte altre self-discipline dell'architettura e del design.
