you can’t have one ecological plan of urban development without considering the macro-scale as the starting point. cities are to be lived by normal persons that have simple ambitions. to live in a better environment and improve their quality of living. we propose in-between solutions by managing to connect the city with its public uses and the individual with his own private world. creating clusters of uses connected by a mass of green public zones we defend the natural tendency of nature invasion from the urban sprawl. controlling the growth of the urban is fundamental to maintain a quality lifestyle in this medium sized city. giving the park the same importance that we give to the city allows it to be strong and to compete and survive.
