It will be a permeable urban settlement, as an open filter. This system doesn’t work on the dualism between “inner private spaces” and “external open spaces”, but on the relationship between space and territory. Working this way we avoid to close the different zones with definite and inflexible boundaries.
GRADUAL: THE INFRASTRUCTURAL SYSTEM.
Infrastructural system is one of the relevant issues in the project. We started from the existing transportation systems to formulate the settlement. An appropriate approach may be to design an infrastructure that includes roads, cycleways, pedestrian path, lighting and facilities and natural elements. The Novi Grad is a place that must offer a GRADUAL interchange between different transport systems. A new system of roads also offer a new design for public and private spaces. We offer a new urban design with distinctive and relevant elements in the scheme.
The main objective of the project is to create a sustainable urban settlement , self-
1. EUROPEAN. Zagreb is proposed as a new European city lying between the east and west.
2. SPATIAL SCALE. Capital of Croatia is the political and economic center of the nation.
3. URBAN SCALE. Novi Grad as entrance to the historic city, but most of all, an element that mediate the relationship with the “no urban”.
4. ARCHITECTURAL SCALE. The overall design of the project involves the construction of a new space based on the interconnectivity between the public / private spaces, the infrastructure system and the environment.
The “NOVI GRADUAL” is nothing but an attempt to create a project to regenerate the area through a series of strategies that go beyond the mere reality of architecture. The project strategy seeks to overcome the urban chaos and spatial disorder of the place, turning them into possible potential for development, at the same time try to highlight all the positive characteristics that are part of it. The urban disorder and the absence of a real network of public spaces, propose a strategy based on some sort of basic urban redevelopment. The urban regeneration is based on “revitalization” of the area. Regeneration to be achieved through the design of focused strategies, capable of triggering a chain of strong and shared decision-
The project The main objective of the project is to solve the “urban chaos” caused by the lack of a precise drawing of the soil. The project aims at a reorganization spatial and functional and at the same time tries to propose a unification of this urban area where actually seems to be no interaction. The aim is to create a self-
The development of the strategic choices of the project aims to introduce a new functional mixité and tries to amplify and value the existing site’s vocations (commercial, tourist accommodation , etc..). The strategic point of intervention is the expansion of the catchment area of the site. This expansion is achievable by grafting of functions capable of attracting the investment of private capital.
The future starts here.
