Punta Olmi

The project orientation of this, in many ways, strange operation, deals not so much with the architectural choices in themselves, in as much as the relationship that must exist between the various parts of the project itself. This is especially so when, as in this case, there is the problem of the relationship between public and private, between collective use of space and the need for exclusive environments, in a manner of speaking “individuals”. The architecture can mark and underline this difference, which is the historic structural dualism of the city in general and in particular the Italian city, or attempt interaction, even if only formal, between these different environments. In this case, the project in its entirety is the research or the attempt to confer unity and homogeneity to a given form in itself assembled or composite, in the attempt of the planning as a unit or composition of pre-built elements. In this project, the constructions, the streets, the collective spaces, and the green areas conform the area in a specific way with a simple but not elementary order, an order that does not require priority in the works, that does not privileged one part over another, but above all an order where the private in some way is part of the public because it finds itself within a general design that will become a part of the city.
