Concept
Civic Center is located in a strategic location within an ideal environment such as the Park of the Library of the Trees. This condition reinforces the crucial role between the Isola area, increasing towards dialogue and exchange. Since its structure is defined as a privileged observatory developed through a pedestrian ramp which wraps up to the first floor: an architectural promenade which becomes an extension of the interior spaces and roof garden.

The Centre is therefore designed to offer community services and open for intercultural relationships, well-organized, attractive, and seductive. Its structure, material, and spatial composition are the first elements capable of activating positive dynamics and establish relationships. This gene, together with the ability to develop work, will make this building an open-source.

OPEN SOURCE is then understood as a free element, implemented by the users with their own experience, enhanced by the relationships that can promote enhanced by the functional and spatial flexibility, optimized by the continuity and simplicity of the space.
