Waterfront #2 - Reggio Calabria (Italy)

Model realization for Studio Valle Progettazioni (Rome)

DescriptionGalleryDetails


The proposal of Studio Valle Progettazioni to redesign the waterfront of the southern Italian city Reggio Calabria is a result of the collaboration between two architectural offices. This model, in scale 1:500, had to illustrate the hidden “world” in the building’s long and rigid shape. The transparency on two sides of the model gives an idea of the distribution of volumes, functions and connections. The visitors arrive on an entrance bridge, which leads over railway tracks. From a “Belvedere” a staircase connects the sea terrace with the beach.
