Typology

What is a metropolitan intervention?
 
This is the largest scale type of interventions that take place in the public realm of a city, related to the altering of an important portion of a city. A type of intervention of such magnitude and notoriety that impacts not only at neighborhood scale, but rather the way the city is perceived and experienced, becoming a metropolitan landmark, a metropolitan super-attractor of social interactions, and a trendy international destination for local citizens & tourists.
 
This typology combines urban planning and landscape design, intervening the city at waterfronts, bridges, parks, or whole districts, by improving the quality of its public realm, creating spaces of opportunity for collective outdoor leisure, mixed-use entertainment spaces, play & joy, etc… Interventions of this proportions catalyze major social interactions across the city, boosting commercial activity and real estate development.
 
The main objective of this typology is to improve the public realm of an entire city, raising the bar of citizens’ outdoor lifestyle standards, encouraging massive public affluence and cultivating important human dynamics in a given metropolitan area.

Crystal Pool in Topscape N41 from Italy

Progettato in occasione dell'inaugurazione del nuovo complesso ad uso misto Crystal Plaza, prende avvio dal medesimo principio formatore: il cristallo come forma e come somma di superfici. Qui il concetto assume un doppio significato trasformandosi in gocce d'acqua "cristallina" che, dalla scalinata che connette il livello stradalea quello della terrazza pubblica dell'edificio commerciale, scendono a cascata creando differenti sedute ombreggiate, che vanno a infrangersi nella piscina virtuale a livello zero...
