Concept: Educational topography
The project refers to the landscape and programmatic development of a 100.000 sq.m of green area along the coast. The scheme suggests the creation of an ecological park based on four educational zones with autonomous centres of information, exhibition and product sales. The four educational centres are: marine centre, recycling centre, bio-agricultural centre and renewable energy source’s centre. These zones are complemented by a series of other activities creating a multidimensional activity area. The purpose of the park is to bring the user in touch with the issues of ecological and environmental interest within a serene context.
Eco –park has the character of an open air museum that is crossed by a series of experiential routes with different quality (coastal, inland) and user (joggers, cyclist) which vary in levels of difficult according to different degrees of slope.
