Reactivation is to define a new order in a degraded area. Reasoning around this concept the ex-barrack Lupi di Toscana takes shape. The design is inspired by the local surroundings, here interpreted as a highly fragmented social pattern, and aims to restore a new quality and image. The design is the synthesis for three concepts: Organism, an urban circular and sustainable system, an eco-system for a new generation; Green Infrastructure, that overcomes functional limits and becomes an ecological indicator for all the neighbourhood; Space, conceived as the mediation between open areas and built areas, that restores an urban landscape made for leisure and community.
