Invisible Layer

Invisible Layer

NASA studies suggests that the sea level will rise by at least one meter in the next 100 years. This phenomenon, in a long time, could take to the submersion of a large percentage of lands. In this case the infrastructures and the services that characterize our cities today should be rethought and replaced according to the new space requirement.

In this context, we propose a multi-functional system of islands composed by, training facilities, sports fields, parks and gardens. In this homogeneous landscape characterized by morphological characters devoid of complexity, solar orientation is the main tool for the design.

Today, however, playgrounds and sport facilities are an essential meeting place and center for the living life and the good balance of urban metabolism. This is an invisible but essential layer. We can conceptually associate that to islands included in a cluttered environment. Good design practices perceive the importance of organizing them into a system.

Each float plate would represent the node of a network that develops in this new seascape. A layer now present in our abstract city and relocated in a new landscape.
