-FINALIST of Street of Tomorrow Competition


Climate change is an avoidable reality that mankind is already facing. The sea level is expected to increase exponentially, meaning that – without human intervention – many inhabited areas will be submerged in the next 50 years.

Any strategy to preserve those lands drying them out constantly, would cost an incredible amount of time, money and technology.

Our project proposes an overturning strategy, rethinking at the climate change as an opportunity for human change: a new way of mobility that fully embraces the scenario of the flooded lands reshaping the existing river’s network into a new infrastructure.

Indeed, rivers come across most of the inhabited lands alongside the embankments that are to contain their flow. In a step-by-step process, those could become the streets of tomorrow.

The former embankment will become a system to build throughout the years, following the uncertain nature of this change by stopping or fast forwarding to its complete realization.

The streets will grow into mixed-used paths or galleries, submerged or emerged, depending by the case or the stage of the process. The space is no longer vehicle’s exclusive, but it is a blue-green corridor and hub where social life happen and new productive activities develop.
