Beautification project for Pisa
Best Project of Public Space by Student
About the project
The designed site is closed to vehicular traffic, and the vehicle bridge will be replaced with a pedestrian one. Plus there will be sight seeing platforms, an amphitheater, a pier, and stairs leading up the fortress wall.
The six meters wide bridge is designed with a concrete foundation and metal structures that look quite lightweight and don’t interfere with the existing development. A temporary pavilion is designed in the old canal-lock. Its roof can be used as a stage, and the building itself as a summer coffee shop or a storage place. From the fortress wall that will be accessible by the disabled, too, great views of the Arno River and the city of Pisa open.
