Bio-scape is located on the facades of Via del Corso, where social life and commercial habits are intense in the city center, and aims to change daily habits by restoring the contextual landscape in order to create biodiversity. In the project, ecosystem sections added to the facades create a new layer for the city. In this way, existing structures, articulated sections, humans, insects, plants and all other living things are considered layers of the earth. While these layers increase the biodiversity in the city, they create a new and dynamic ecosystem for Rome.
The design is based on dynamism. A living structure that changes and transforms over time, bio- scape that can be defined a section that generates or reclaims landscapes. The sections integrated into the façades, creating a new biological landscape in the city, are always changing, creating a new production and exploration space for the users. Landscapes encountered in the flow of daily life create awareness for the ecosystem. It enables the conventional understanding of shopping to turn into a mutualistic relationship in cooperation with nature.
