Alta is a laboratory of post-production. Alta is a city for public realm investigations that proposes a place to live in common, altogether. Productivity has been always related to the past century, teamed with the idea of quantity and goods accumulation. Alta gives us the opportunity to experiment a new way for weak and diffused urbanization, where a constellation of services re-thinks the meaning of production. In order to dissolve Alta’s urban sprawl, the intervention operates using free open systems, adaptive and responsive to the harsh local climate. Flexible devices, inspired by the vernacular traditional fish flakes, act as catalysts in the open space, creating new sites for work, culture, commerce and urban life. These are not pavilions, but activators that grow, die, or merge throughout the urban metabolism.
