Architectural Competition – first prize
Design commission after the international architectural competition
Client: Municipality of San Giorgio Morgeto, (Italy)

We did: schematic design, design development, and construction documents.
The urban renovation project for the historical center of San Giorgio Morgeto was aimed to find a unified solution for two different problems. The first one is the completion of a large multistory car park, and the mitigation of the visual impact of its facade, over 70 meters long and up to 21 meters high. The second one is the creation of a new pedestrian public space in the heart of the town.
Ideally, the vertical plane of the new green facade of the car park and the horizontal one of the new square are two parts of the same surface, as they were a single folded sheet.
