Prato, Macrolotto 0 - first prize
The creation of Piazza dell’Immaginario is a simple action of profound impact in a neighborhood where the lack of public space constitutes an obvious problem. Warehouses, supermarkets, homes, Chinese restaurants and shops, which make up the densely built Macrolotto 0, are interrupted for a few meters in order to leave space for a surface to rethink and redevelop. The new paving is designed and conceptualized as a mosaic, able to embellish the space and at the same time redefine it. This drawing is realized using exclusively the materials used in ordinary road maintenance. The alternation of triangles and crosses is in fact laid on the ground with the same paints and templates used for the marking of roads.
