Urban regeneration
Silla, BO
Silla, on the Bolognese Appenines, is one amongst many other villages on its valley that in recent years began to pay a too high price for the passage of a main motorway through its urbanized part. The displacement of the junction point foreseen by the municipality will generate a new square where once was the crossing. We interpreted the new task as a liquid space that links all the public spaces around crossing the roads and prevailing on them. The green presence on the square is strong and fills some large rectangular sectors with lawn, trees and relax spaces. An oasis inside the oasis.
