THE THEME:

 

 

    New settlement (partially "integrated") that connects and integrates the various physiognomies of the surrounding urban areas.

 

THE PURPOSE:

Determine an urban place that provides:

- hospitality (urban living spaces);

- work spaces (reducing the commuting);

- facilities integration:       - sanitary facilities,

- cultural facilities,

- for elderly,

- for childrens;

- the chance to be "once again" citizens (pedestrians);

        - the opportunity to re-enter the green areas which an element of 

          urban settlement (oxygen production);

- the possibility of increasing the public facilities for mobility

  (oxygen consumption reduction).

 

THE MEANS:

A)  Drastic change in the mobility network.

B)  "Widespread" multifunctionality.

C)  Reactivate the urban meeting ritual via meeting places determination.

+   Retrieving of the Appia Way's Park for cultural and recreational activities.

The strategical proposal:   use the green as connective  (him, "the green," is by nature "the place of the feet").

 

THE PROGRAM:

Join the Appia Way's Park and the future constrution of S.D.O.-Eastern Administrative System using 2 components of urban comfort:

1) mechanized or overhead mobility  (car presence reduction);

2) connection and expansion of green areas.
