- 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).
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").
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.
