Description Change this

The Maddalena peninsula is a rare architectural and landscape quality system, subject to constraints in 2004 with the establishment of Protected Marine Area. For these reasons, the design approach would be result in an entire territorial system absolute respect and preserving the image and environmental structure. According to these thoughts we decided to design an utopian and visionary form. The project idea, in accordance with the guidelines of the call, is based on theoretical assumptions that follow a fantasy story of historical facts about “Magna Grecia” territory. The structure is energy-efficient. It uses innovative power systems for the production of electricity, sea water desalination, disposal and treatment of wastewater. All possible functions indicated in the call (accommodation, offices, cultural and artistic center) develop vertically in the column.
