L’Architettura è la Città is an urban palimpsest aimed to turn Alpini Square into a complex ecosystem, where nature, architecture and city can fuse into each other and produce a constellation of multiple micro spaces. Conceived as an extended and modular roofscape, the project is based on the interaction among different agents: the existing vegetation is preserved and integrated into the design of the new square. A market, areas for concerts and events, bar, restaurant, info-centre, multimedia point are accommodated. The canopy’s apparent spatial continuity is counterbalanced by the functional fragmentation of the project: each micro-space has its own specificity.
