In the frame of a regeneration program focused on the suburban quarters of Bologna, a project with a real support of the people who lives there. A new urban landscape to descover and a new sustainible building-criteria for a public space are the main design aims. The demolition of a former municipal building is interpreted as an occasion to achieve particular effects of material re-combination (reusing windows frame, tiles, bricks). The artist Enrica Borghi, with inhabitants, works on a easy recycling process. The suburban is transformed in a new vital center, a urban oasis.
