“Urbs in horto” as a mix of three natures: wild, agricultural and elaborate spaces for contemplative and playful pleasure. The idea is to redefine the relationship on a large scale with the wild, agricultural and contemplative context and bringing it back into the strategies according to the interferences with the other elements of context.
Our strategies are: mixitè with different residential typologies, we try to introduce new local actors, who bring a variety of uses with the possibility of using the ground floor for craft production uses to increase the local circular economy; nature: it acts as a link with the surrounding territory, both with local productions through urban horticulture, and with the wild parts; accessibility: our project promote slowly and sustainably mobility. All the streets of the neighborhood are reshaped as hybrid spaces between the pedestrian and the cars.
