Orangerie 10%
Ravenna - mentioned
The site is in a complex location within the mostly abandoned industrial areas of Ravenna city docks. Among these big scale landscapes, and within this framework of isolation and seclusion we can find the small scale grain of informal self-organized urban orchards. Instead of planning a whole new garden for an urbanity that will take too long to exist, we decide to embrace and value the present condition of informal vegetable gardens and intensify the character and the potential of the site itself. Orangerie 10% is a brand-new social and vegetal condenser in the city.A new protected microclimate in which human activity and exotic vegetation can coexist and flourish together. It is a 10 m wide and 100 m long greenhouse, able to host cultural and artistic events, rooms for small crafts, creative activities and new services and workshops.
