The proposed project is at the same time landscaping, urban planning and architectural design. It is a territorial project. “Territorial” means in particular two things: the first is that the new intervention is considered as a unique opportunity to transform a piece of “diffused city” into a place that can and enhance and dialogue with a natural landscape of extraordinary beauty.
The second meaning is that the project is rooted in the geography of the place, placing significant limits on the chaotic growth of the widespread city and drawing its strength from an architectural vision that does not camouflage but underlines the artificiality of the built environment.
