Nantes MÊtropole d’eau Place Petite Hollande et bords de Loire During the first decades of the XX century, Nantes got rid of its relationships with its river, the Loire. Most of the internal branches of the river became roads and in general spaces for car circulation. The project aims to imagine a new dialogue between the river and the city through the re-design of the detected strategic spaces. In order to do this do this, the project develops two different strategies. The first one is related to the threshold areas like the docks and the banks in order to unload, and in some areas to delete, the traffic along the river, to improve cycle and pedestrian paths by giving continuity to the already existing pedestrian public space which goes from the railway station to the ex portual commercial area. In the Petite Hollande square the project re-link the city to the river by a sloping surface, organised in terraces. The terraces move the river closer to the city and at the same time allow the ligeriènne vegetation to grow up till the city level. The second one reads the urban tissue and imagines a metaphorical re-insularisation of the Gloriette-Madeleine island, nowadays welded to the rest of the city by roads. The edges re-definition is achieved through the new ecology. It works with an improved rainwater management system and by a new green sequence of public spaces.

Stecco ĂŠtude de requalification du Parc des Sports sur le plateau du Heysel The competition focuses on a new project for the existing Sport Park nearby Bruxelles Stadium, which will be transformed during the next years by a huge residential and tertiary complex. The park that will be created has to maintain his sport vocation and at the same time it has to improve the flexibility of the public space. Nowadays the competition area is extremely fragmented and unreadable in his own totality. The proposal is the re-organisation of sport buildings and public space around a main element: the Stecco. Stecco goes from the new intervention, Neo, to the metro station Houba-Brugmann becoming a promenade and hosting all the sport facilities and a 5 000 m3 water storage.

Zac Courrouze Vivre en ville. Habiter dans un Parc.


The Zac is a 114 ha ex military area, nowadays belonging to the Municipality of Rennes, the Courrouze project, started in 2003. It’s a reflection both on the sustainable development and on the capability of the public space to be the qualitative binding agent of many private operations. This part of the city has led for a long time in abandoned conditions and hosts now a huge vegetal and built heritage. His conservation and development is one of the main goal of the proposal. On the ecological side the project proposes an experimental rainwater management and the soil balance between excavation and backfill. In order to achieve these targets, new buildings are built on the existing slabs and the design of the public spaces consists mainly in green spaces like bioswales . I mainly worked on two sectors from the concept phase till the preliminary project : Mermoz and Grande Prairie. Mermoz, whose floor area is around 30 000 m2, crosses the railways and links the two sides of the project. The public space is organised by a grid according to green and mineral continuities. Following the soil balance target, the proposal goes for partially underground parkings. Grande Prairie, around 29 000 m2 of floor area, will be built in the area where there is the actual metro building site. In order to preserve the building site from eventual existing dangerous objects (like bombs left over from the past military use), the entire area was covered, few years ago, with one meter and a half of soil. For this reason the proposal mainly focuses on differences in height between the future neighborhood and the existing ones, starting from inspiration of Burri’s Cretto and achieving a detailed public space project.

The project conceives the city of Cuneo as an ecosystem capable of absorbing, regenerating and reacting to events that occur in places and communities. The site area proposed by Europan is located in the terminal part of the main axe of city, surrounded by residential neighborhoods. This part of the city, unlike the consolidated city, is marked by an open urban tissue and vacant parking spaces. The projects reinterprets the site area recognizing the unexpressed potentials of the public space, waiting to become a qualitative space. The reclamation of the ex-barrack acts as a catalyst for a wider regeneration project, intended to improve urban, social, cultural and environmental quality. Through the hub, the city enters the space, transforming it in a territorial laboratory: PAF, the productive park. A step by step strategy has been developed to stimulate a process of re-colonization of the barrack. The project focuses on the first year of PAF: from the park opening, which means allow people to cross it for the first time since the barrack has been built, to the consensus building approach in order to imagine the future of this area in a shared vision. PAF is conceived in order to counter environmental, social, political, economic and territorial sustainability criteria. Every element has a different range of definition related to the level of flexibility required and its possibility to rework and implement over time. Energetic building ensures PAF energetic autonomy, economic sustainability and a modest carbon footprint. The park returns to the city a wide green space, improving urban and environmental quality while strengthening the relation between the blocks. The territorial laboratory improves the capabilities of self-governance of the community - integrating the weak actors in the decision making process.

limes | limen Progetto di valorizzazione del Parco dell’Oreto Oreto Park is a territory of boundaries, which embodies perfectly the contradictions of its country. It is the largest park in the city of Palermo but today it is completely unreachable; it is a fragment, but retains a unique territorial specificity determined by its fluvial nature. The park is wholly absorbed by the city, however it represents, at the same time, a barrier. Moreover it is defined as “park”but it cannot be considered a proper one. His territory belongs to an agricultural region with a strong productive vocation. Despite of the river’s course, this area is now strongly threatened by a never- ending proliferation of new buildings and by its exclusion from all the economic and social dynamics. Oreto Park as a foundation/resource was established in 2002 through a compromise between the cities of Palermo, Altofonte and Monreale, in cooperation with the University of Palermo. The main goal of this agreement was the inclusion and the ranking of the Park within the Regional Plan of parks and reserves. The river crosses territories extremely disfigured by man’s actions. The original contrast between the countryside and urban space is now more evident thanks to the mutual interference, and for the struggle of drawing a clear line between the order of nature and man-made environment. Giving a transversal reading to the territory means considering the current boundaries [limes] in their opportunity of being flexible. By intercepting and involving the elements belonging to the surrounding territory, the park becomes, therefore, threshold and access [limen].
