The competition aims to rehabilitate the ancient rural complex “Cascina Lossano” in a creative and innovative way. The main purpose is to imagine a new residential concept surrounded by agricultural fields and nature.
The goal is to redesign existing cafés and restaurants by transforming their layouts – fully or partially – into a completely new concept that allows them to combine their regular functions with coworking uses.
Tactical Urbanism Now!
The challenge of this competition is to imagine more inclusive, resilient and sustainable public spaces. The idea is to think creatively and to experiment with new possibilities to improve the conditions of the cities where we live in.
With the aim of challenging anthropocentric architecture and experimenting a new creative process focused on nature, the competition requires the design of 3 small pavilions immersed in the breath-taking landscape of “Torbiere del Sebino” nature reserve.
