Locate Varesino - first prize
This project could be interpreted as a soft “metamorphosis of the everyday”. All the items are already there. We read and transcribe historical and present events (the somptuous De Wich garden, 17th century), physical featuring (commistion of hard- and softlandscape, urban and rural) and spatial organisation (a triangular open space as center of the city). A system of perceptive focuses generates the particular geometry and paths of the public spaces. All the trees are preserved and reintegrated in the new design, enlarging and visually unifing the garden with the square.
