Description Change this

From Turin’s largest intra-urban industrial wasteland emerges a park near the city centre. The park is characterized by its industrial past and spatially defined by the river Dora, by main traffic arteries and relatively new residential quarters. Corresponding to the former property lines the park has five separate areas whose functional differences and aesthetic impact are based on the quality of the industrial remains. Bridges, stairs and ramps connect the different parts of the park with each other and with the surrounding quarters.

In the scope of the project „Torino, Città d‘Acqua” the river partly covered with a concrete plate gets rediscovered for the city.
