PORTA DEGATIA — Embankment in Pisa


Best Project of Public Space by Student

About the project

An ambitious initiative to reconstruct and renovate the embankment in the historic center of Pisa (Italy).

 One of the key features of the project is preservation of the old city wall and its use as a basis for new green zones, walking paths, and sight seeing platforms. The pedestrian bridge connecting two old towers on the opposite river banks and offering a view of the Tower of Pisa will become a new landmark of the city.
