ABRE LOS OJOS
HOW TO FIX AN EXISTENT MESS? PAMPERDUTO MASTERPLAN
“Far from being the smartest possible biological species, we are probably better thought of as the stupidest possible biological species capable of starting a technological civilization – a niche we filled because we got there first, not because we are in any sense optimally adapted to it.”
”Abre los ojos” tries to reconnect a small territory, devastated by nefarious urbanistic works (black area in the pic here beside, to see it let’s insert on google maps Via Marte, 62018 Pamperduto, MC), to its natural sea/hill connection, sewing up the affected area and the historical settlement to the sea through cycling and walking paths open to everyone. First of all, due to the urbanistic rules, the parcelling area must have new residential blocks joined multiple touristic accommodations. So the idea to create an open green area where we can immerse private houses and touristic places: an urban space without gates and enclosures where all the citizens can get in and live the public spaces till to sea. So only nature defines borders among private propriety and public spaces. We designed a spa with waterfalls, a hotel and a little restaurant equipped with a public park on the roof open to all.
