The shaded side of the dune

Architetture per i litorali. Idee progettuali per le attrezzature al servizio della balneazione

Location S. Anna Arresi, Italy

Year 2010

Description The project’s challenge consists in proposing a system based on the repetition of elementary infrastructures aiming to construct a new landscape where the action of man, in contrast with the action of nature, assumes architectural structures descriptive of nature itself. The faint divisions of the cultivations become visual axes and then paths. Long walkways on the ponds tell of calm waters and migration routes, clusters of umbrellas offer, along with the pines, refuge from the sun with their brim.

The small congregations of the parking’s fences recall the fosterage activities, once a shaping force of the landscape of this environment.
