Inventing Urbanity Regeneration - Revitalisation - Colonization
The proposal takes its moves from the surrounding urban fabric and landscape, together with the programmatic mix.
The search was towards the design of a system of predominantly pedestrian public spaces, highly linked to the existing network, to start a process of urban regeneration.
A high level of permeability is obtained, rediscovering an extraordinary part of town, of a great historical importance, overlooking the city.
From an introverted mono-functional plot in the heart of town, to a vibrant public area, becoming the natural town centre.
A network of diffused polarities is structuring the site, attracting people and activities, intensifying the existing sequence of public spaces.
The site is designs to become a permeable system, a network of public spaces with a clear hierarchy, that reorganizes flows and re-establishes connections. Highly recognizable quality spaces will contribute in forming a local identity, attracting residents, local people and tourists.
